Hi! I’m a former Directv subscriber who came to Dish about a month ago. I have a Hopper 3 and the 52.0 remote and really like Dish so far. Always looking to improve my experience, so I have a question about a minor “annoyance”.

With my Directv system, when I turned the system off using my remote, both the receiver and TV turned off with the push of a single button. With my Dish system, I need to push one button to turn the Hopper 3 off and a different button to turn the TV off.

Is this the way it’s supposed to work or do I need to change something in my set-up to get both to go off with the push of a single button?

How about hdmi control? My tv in the bedroom is hooked up to a 4K Joey and when I turn off the satellite it turns off the satellite, tv and the a/v receiver in one step.

Isn't there a TV Power button on the 52.0? That can be programming to turn off the TV but you will have to press TWO buttons to turn off both the receiver and the TV. Of course you could just turn off the TV and not the Dish receiver and only have to press one button.

CEC sucks. When I use my av receiver to change inputs, the CEC will search for a signal and change the input back to Dish, unless I turn on the input to the desired device before changing the selection on the AV receiver. Turning the CEC off, causes bigger problems.

My HWS doesn't turn my TV off either. It only turns it on and controls the volume.

Dish did that because people complained that they wanted to turn off the Dish receiver, but switch the TV for BluRay or streaming and the Dish receiver was turning off the tv.

So, push two buttons and quit your complaining. You can't have it both ways.:)

Ya know...that's actually not a bad solution. They already have long press & short press functionality on several other buttons on the new remote, so it wouldn't be an entirely foreign concept.

Yep, that's how my Car entertainment system works. Short press turns of radio keeps on navigation. Long press turns off everything. Same concept.

Um, I wasn't complaining, merely confirming for OP that what he experiences on his H3 is the way it works on HWS as well. :)
