Can't get remote 2 to function for dish network
Alright, I have one box thats connected to 2 tv's. TV 1 works properly, the remote changes channels and works fine. TV 2 doesnt work. The tv works fine, the controller does turn off the t.v., however. I just can't get it to change the channel for the dish network. The tv does get signal from the box, it has the dish network press "select" to begin screen. Whats wrong/ what can i do to fix it? thanks

help! i need it fixed soon
Which light on the top of remote 2 gets lit when you push the 'select' button?
Make sure you have pressed the TV button at the top of the remote. You may have pressed another one and you are not getting complete control of the remote. It will turn on/off TV by default, but that's all it will do unless TV has be selected.
I'm pretty sure i had the SAT button light up when i was trying to get it to work. So i should select TV instead, not sat for it to work? thanks
Check your UHF antenna on the rear of your satellite box. If you have a 622, according to the instruction manual, make sure the antenna is extended, pointing straight up for best reception. If the antenna is not pointed straight up, you will experience remote to receiver transmission difficulty when using your TV 2 remote. I have a 622; it too is connected to two different sets, my 52" Sony HD and a standard definition set in my guest bedroom. I experienced the exact same problem as you a day or so ago, even going as far as exchanging batteries in the TV 2 remote before I found the right solution. Hope this helps.
