Question about DISH Network ViP 211K

1 Answer

Thomas Faust, I'm trying to program a Magnavox TB100MW9 OTA digital/analog converter to the AUX mode on my 211k and can't seem to find the correct code. I've tried all Magnavox codes in the 211K manual as well as the code sheet that came with the receiver. Do you know of any more codes I could try or better yet, do you know the correct code for the TB100MW9? Thanks. Ron

I am not sure which codes were used, but you can check out to view our entire list available. I am unsure if the AUX mode will work with the OTA converter. I have listed the steps below to do a power scan which lets it go through all available codes. If you have a model 20/21.0 remote, you can also utilize the learning function on the remote.

With the OTA Converter on, press and hold the AUX mode button (about six seconds) on the top of the remote until all mode buttons light up, then release. Press 2, then press STAR (*)

Press the Up arrow button once per second while pointing the remote at the converter. If the code for it comes up, the equipment power off.

When it does, press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light will flash three times. To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment.

You shouldn't need to. You should get your local channels from Dish on the low channel numbers, like 2 through 70.

SOURCE: Is it possible to have two remotes for the dish

Hello my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network customer service. There is a way to have two remotes on one TV, the first thing we need to push the menu button two times to get to the system info screen on the working remote. Then there will be a number in a white box at the button of the screen, we will want to remember that number so we can put it in for the second remote. Now once we are on the SYSTEM INFO screen we will want to get the remote we want programmed to that receiver, we will hold down the SAT button on the remote until all the buttons light up on the top of the remote. We will let go and then press the number that we wrote down and press the # button. Now both remotes will change the satellite channels.

    Eugene Sebik,

    I would be happy to look into this further with you! What are you trying to address? There isn't a code required for our receivers, but to program a remote to a TV needs a code. If you can provide more details, I would be happy to assist you! I have included a link below that has codes for programming the remote to most devices!

    Need code for a magnavox converter box using a one for all universal remote

    Daphne, Try using auto code search feature, found on most universal remotes. Instructions should be in your manual. From one of the forums they suggested this. Place your tv on channel 3.
    Point your GE universal remote at the converter box, press and hold the setup button until the red light remains lit, then press and release the DVR/AUX button. The red light will blink once.
    Enter 0581 as the code, then press Power and the Converter box will turn on and your channels will pop right up.
    Check the attached links,instruction,guides, read through them, as they have fixes to program remote. Good luck

    Need to program a universal remote to work on Magnavox TB100MW9

    Most of these are new and codes do not exist for them. You'll need a universal remote that has a learning feature so it will learn the code. Walmart has them for $16-$19.
