Neutron said:I tried that and it didn't want to scan, it just wanted to turn my TV off. And yes I did the 2* thing with aux. I had to call DISH to get the code for my Sony A/V Receiver since they didn't list it in the 811 book.
That happened to me the first time I tried the scan feature. (Same situation -- I have a Sony A/V receiver.) But it worked the second time. You have to keep hitting the channel UP or DOWN buttons until the receiver goes off before you press the # button (step 5 on pg. 67). I'm pretty sure that's what I wasn't doing right the first time.
