    first press menu button twice -- that will bring up your system info screen where you will see the remote adresses fot tv1, and tv2

    press and hold the "sat" button on the remote till all the lighta come on
    now press the number that is for the receiver you are programming (from the previous step) then press #--- it should now work.

    you can press menu 2 times on the receiver, now with the remote press the record button and the number next to either the 1 or 2 on the screen (depends on the remote you are programming) should change. at this point you are good to go

    what was said above is correct if thats your number two remote if its num one remote depending on what type of reciever you have youre going to have to a ccess system info from the reciever front panel if you have a 311 or 322 youre going to have to either pull out the smart card or press power and then up on the front to get to system info and do the steps above. or vip open the door on the right side and press system info, 625 522 512 reicers you will have to press system info on the front also.
