Ed Fox,

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.


Addressing Remote:

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!

SOURCE: Dish VIP 612 breaks up when playing back recorded shows.

Edy, I am not going to say that this is the definite issue but Dish only has receivers that are 1080i compatible at the time which will give you some blurring and possible pixellating. 1080p will resolve these issues in the future. Therefore if you still need help let me know.

SOURCE: Need to Frequently Reset Dish Network HD VIP 612 Solo DVR.

When you bring up your guide look at the top of the screen and you will see the LIST: if this says ALL HD then press the guide button until you see ALL SUB or a menu and select ALL SUB. If your guide keeps changing by itself its possible to have remote interfence since you have a UHF remote, especially if you also see channel changes as well. Try setting the guide and go from there. If you still continue to have issues call 1-800-333-3474 for tech support for extensive troubleshooting or at dishnetwork .com/tech.

    It sounds like either on the 612 or the Yamaha Receiver that the HDMI port is faulty, thus causing the flashing picture. It sounds like the 612 to the TV works fine. I would recommend replacing the Yamaha, and if problem persists then try replacing the 612.

    How to connect a blue ray player with the sc pt760 sound system with dvd?

    According to the models you provided it looks like the DVD player has only HDMI out and the sound system you have does not directly support that. I would suggest purchasing a HDMI audio extractor so that you can covert the digital signal from your blu-ray to an analog signal. However, there are other ways of doing this. If you provide me with your TV that you use I might be able to advise another work around.

    Go on google and look for "hdmi audio converter" or "hdmi audio Extractor".

    Make sure to look at review to determine the quality of the product and decide what device fits your budget.

    Why won't my blue-ray player DMP-BD87 play blue-ray disc's any more?

    Because Blue-Ray isn't what it's cracked up to be. In fact no TV studio will even consider using one.

    Yamaha RX-V595 Receiver will play Dolby Digital 3/2.1 audio Blu-Ray disc with player set to bitstream but will not play DTS-HD 3/2.1 unless output is set to PCM. Is this an issue with the Yamaha Recei

    The optical connection (SPDIF) doesn't have enough bandwidth to transfer DTS-HD audio. To use DTS-HD, you must connect the blue-ray player and receiver via HDMI cable.

    Each DTS-HD audio track on blue-ray includes also "normal" DTS audio, which is probably used when you select PCM. Player decodes it and sends decoded (non-HD) audio via optical cable to receiver.

    CAN THE panasonic dmp bd35 PLAY 3D BLU-RAY DISKS

    I understand the DMP BD35 is a normal blue ray disk player and not a 3D. Please see this manual if you want to be doubly sure.

    However something like a DMP BDT360 will play 3D blue ray discs and you can view it on a 3D ready TV.
