Need codes for setting up my Dish VIP 612
I can definitely understand the concern. Below I will give the steps to program a remote to an auxillary device, a link where you can look up codes, and the steps on how to preform a Power Scan if the codes don't work.
1.) Press and hold the clear DVD button until all mode lights light up.
2.) Release and DVD light will be blinking.
3.) Press 1 for a VCR/DVD, and enter the code. (if DVD code is 617, enter 1617)
4.) Press pound (#)
5.) Try functions (Power, Play, etc..) and see if it is working.
6.) If no function, repeat steps 1-4 with another code.
On the steps above, to program your sound bar, repeat the same steps but instead of DVD hold AUX, and instead of 1 before the code, press 2.
To Power Scan the remote, with the desired equipment on, press and hold the DVD or AUX mode button (about six seconds) on the top of the remote until all mode buttons light up, then release. Press 1 for VCR/DVD, or 2 for other equipment, then press STAR (*)
Press the Up arrow button once per second while pointing the remote at the equipment. 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.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
