I've had no luck with my Philip's HTS8100 soundbar and the dish remote 21.0. I end up using the Philip's remote to control the volume and the Dish remote for changing the channel.

did you try the teaching/learning function. i have yet to see it fail.
Oh I tried it…the remote was able to learn some features of the Philips but, unfortunately, not the volume feature
I use a Polk Audio sound bar with my standard remote. The polk soundbar came with a remote but it is also a "learning soundbar" that can use the volume up and volume down buttons from your dish remote. Just press a couple of buttons on the soundbar and point the remote at it to teach it the commands. With my dish remote this works up to about 20feet away once it is programmed. It also learns the TV power on/off button and will toggle on and off with the TV.
I might be able to provide some help on this. OP, you have not mentioned the brand of soundbar you actually have, so if you could I can see what I can do. Also, for any that have not been able to program, just provide the make of the equipment and I can help you too.
