773 is the code I always use for vizio's but you won't get full functionality with the dish remote on a vizio tv. the manufacturer didn't set it up that way, but you will get volume and power. good luck2 comments

Your remote may be in Limited Mode or it may not be programmed with the right code. When you press the TV button, it should illuminate for a moment and then go out. If the SAT light comes on instead, jump down to my instructions to reprogram the remote below.
Unfortunately some of the features may not work. The remote may not be compatible with certain features.
If you have a 20.x, 21.x, 32.x, or 40.x series remote, you may be able to teach the remote the missing commands. Simply follow these instructions: http://www.mydish.com/support/40-remote You may need to select your specific model on the left hand side of the page.
If you don't have one of these remotes, you try a few additional codes. Those are found here: http://www.mydish.com/support/apps/remotecodes.... The codes are entered by holding the TV button until all the lights at the top of the remote illuminate, enter the three digit code, then press #. Then test your controls. If everything is working, press SAT to return to normal viewing. If you're still having trouble, try the next code.
