54.0 is the better remote. Order from DISH, dishdepot.com, check on line, etc to purchase them. Also call DISH and see if they will send a replacement for your defective remote.It seems like my v 52 remotes are acting up more and more. Constantly have to press buttons twice. Is the v 54 remote any better and where is the cheapest place to buy ... I need 5 of them.
