    I am trying to get a RCA RT2760 Home Theater System to work with my Dish Network Remote. I have been through all the steps in the manual and even contacted Tech Support, as well as other post online. I was able to use the volume -/+, and mute with my old DirecTV remote. The power button would not work, but at least I could adjust the volume without getting up.

    The remote says 20.0 IR EchoStar Technologies on the back.
    Thanks

    Do you have the instructions for the 20.0 remote? Read the section on 2-way learning. Instructions are available on line if you need them.

    The learning remote is the 21.0 IR/UHF, NOT the 20.0 IR only.

    Codes yes, not learning, ie, using original component remote (like a BD player remote) to train the 21.0

    I said LEARN that means using the original remote and teaching the "codes" to the 20.0 NOT punching in a 3 digit number for a device.

    Yeah. KAB doesn't have his facts straight. Both remotes are learning remotes.

    Then I've been under the wrong impression for a long time.

    Indeed they are. 32.0, 20.0 and 21.0 are the only DISH remotes with this feature. They also have the backup feature. The learning feature would be the best way to get it to work with your home theater.
