craneserv710,
I would need more information on if it has intermittent control of TV or satellite to provide the best information. I have listed some steps to try below for either situation!
Satellite:
If the remote has intermittent use on the satellite, ensure there is nothing that may be causing interference. For a TV1, this could be a fluorescent light, or a direct heat source blocking the IR signal. If it is a TV2, interference may be caused by a device that is powered on. You can try turning off equipment to see if interference is removed, or you can try moving the antenna on the back of the receiver. If it is sticking straight up, turn it parallel with the receiver. If it is laying flat, put it straight up.
Television:
If the intermittent control is for the TV functions, you may need to program a new code into the remote. There are multiple codes for a remote and some will work completely, while others only provide intermittent functions.
Let me know if you have any other questions, or if you can provide additional details! I'll be happy to assist you.

Hello Witt Thomas,

I can understand the concern and wanting the remote to work the TV Menus. It is possible with our remotes, however it depends on the TV itself. I've seen instances where there are 2 TV's in one house, and 1 will do it, while the other won't.

If you have tried all of the remote codes, and none work, the only other options we have available are to try a powr scan, or teach the remote. This link http://www.mydish.com/support/teach-learning-remote-20-21 can provide the steps on how to teach that model of remote control!

Let me know if you have any other questions.

You can Google the exact model number of your TV. One of the pages that comes up will be from the manufacturer and will contain the manual under SUPPORT or DOWNLOADS.

I am assuming you have the DVD installed with the DISH. If not, the procedure can be googled.

Did you connect to the output of a box? If so then it will usually come through your him I and doesn't require a scan. If cable set your menu setting to cable and not antenna.

Just go to the DISH website for instructions and download the manual
