Skip to comments.Anyone know how to watch TV on DISH NETWORK without a remote?
Posted on 02/18/2012 1:09:32 PM PST by library user
This is a bad, selfish use of FR bandwidth and I will admit that up front.
However, I've searched the internet high and wide for a solution, to no avail.
If you have DISH NETWORK, you might see a screen with the floating DISH logo and the words "press SELECT to continue."
I cannot press SELECT, however, due to the fact that the dog chewed up the remote (5-7 days for a new remote to arrive).
Is there anyway I can watch TV in the meantime?
I looked on the DISH receiver itself for a SELECT button, but there is no such button.
I also rebooted the DISH receiver, but I continue to be re-routed to the screen with the floating logo.
Any tips most appreciated. Thanks very much.
Once I open the panel, is it self-explanatory how to get the TV from the floating logo, to the point where channels will display? For instance, is there a SELECT button inside the panel itself? Thanks very much for your replies.
Yup, it was designed especialy for those that post vanities on how to make it work, JR even get a royalty for that device.
I live in a house and the closest neighbor with Dish was 200 ft away. I tried going up the chain of command but in the end I started to despise Dish so I switched back to Direct TV.
Why in the world don't you just call DISH and ask them your questions?
Amazon will deliver a remote on Monday: http://www.amazon.com/Philips-SRP4004-27-Universal-Fluorescent/dp/B003DNS88C. ($9.19 + $3.99 shipping if you have Amazon Prime).
On the dual receivers, the remotes are UHF not IR for TV 2 so it’s very possible it was the neighbors remote. Yea, the lower echelon people can be quite rude at times.
Call DISH technical support and ask them..
Actually, your post reminds me of the freeper last thanksgiving who posted a vanity about a plstic digital thermometer that melted because he put in a turkey and left it in the bird while in the oven, he was complaining that the direction never told him not to put it in the oven!
I was on hold for an hour and gave up.
Find your model and read the instructions.
Is this a test? $20 and under??
I’ve been using the same Harmony One for years. You can control your TV / AVR / XBox / PS3 / Blue-Ray almost any IR device at all.
Time to think out of the box. You won’t look back.
Sure: Go to bar or restaurant and order water, Visit department store and pretend to be buying, Call up an old friend and invite yourself, try Hulu for free intro use, borrow remote from neighbor, adjust to channel and then return, trade dog for remote on ebay
CALL DISH NETWORK
They will help you, for now, and
They will actually send you a new remote.
Shoot the dog. It’ll chew up the new remote too.
Go to your local Dish installer(s). (call first)
Most, if not all, have replacement remotes in stock.
Do NOT pry it open! PUSH & RELEASE on the left edge of it, and it should pop open.
I once had some crappy samuel jackson movie billed to me on Direct TV. It took a while, but I finally got them to take it off. And there isn’t another house within five hundred yards or so. They really grilled me, like I was trying to rip them off for “Lakeview Terrace.” Yeesh.
When I had Dish my recievers would change the channels by themselves.
NEGATIVE , you had a receiver with a UHF remote that was being changed by another nearby Dish customer who also had a UHF remote ... The cust serv rep should have reversed the charges and instructed you on how to change the “address” of the remote ,, there are 15 possible addresses to avoid the problem you encountered.
