How do I program my Dish Network remote to operate my new Vizio VBS05 soundbar?

How do I program my Dish Network remote to operate my new Vizio VBS05 soundbar? Is there a Dish Network remote control code to program the remote control to operate a Vizio soundbar? I don't want to have the Dish Network remote to operate the TV and then the Vizio soundbar remote to operate the sound to the TV.

    programming the tv is not an issue, 773 is the code. however if the soundbar uses a seperate volume control once it is hooked up then that becomes problematic. you can turn it on and do a power scan, however i have never tried this with a sound bar. press and hold the aux button until all light up. press power and then start hitting channel up until the bar turns off. you'll want to cover the ir receiver on the tv and other devices while you do this so as not to cause a little havoc with the others. once the bar turns off then press pound and you should have it programmed. in your receiver manual or online you will find instructions to default your volume controls to the aux component instead of the tv. hope this helps, it's a first for me
