    Hi, here are the steps to readdress a remote to the satellite receiver:

    1. Go to System Info screen. (Use the SYS Info button on front right of receiver)
    2. Hold down the “SAT” button until all mode lights light up.
    3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
    4. Press the pound (#) button.
    5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
    Note: If successful, the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

    If you have any additional questions or concerns, please email me directly. Thank you!

    also if you need to set the remote to your tv: hold the "TV" mode button then press the big power button, then press the channel up button repeatedly (the tv mode button will flash each time) until the tv turns off, then press the # button. now your dish remote will turn your tv on and off and control the volume and some other functions as well.
