    You can do a code search. This works on most of the time.
    Make sure the sound bar is on
    press the AUX button on your remote until all the top buttons lite up
    press the main power button
    press the channel up button slowly, about once per second until the Soundbar turns off.
    (if you accidentally go past the code, just press the channel down button to turn unit back on.)
    press the # button and you are done.
    If this does not work go here;

    Using you Dish account number, set up a login and you will access to schematics, codes and all kinds of stuff from dish.
    Hope this helps and good luck!

    first, pressand hold the "AUX" mode button till all the lights come on, then release.
    now press 2 *(Star)
    now press the top power button
    now press the channel up button slowly and repeatadly just until your sound bar turns off
    now press the # button to lock in the code

    This will scan for a code that will work.
    please let me know what model receiver/remote you have- there may be other options.

      I am sorry that this did not work for you. sure do wish that you would have responded before you marked as unhelpful. that cost me 20 points--I am sure that you did not know.
      However, there is another option for the remote that you have

      On the left side of your dish remote near the top, there is a small window
      set your sound bar remote and your dish remote on a table with the aux remote pointing at the window on the dish remote (on the side)
      press and hold the clear AUX button on the dish remote till all the lights come on (AUX light will flash)
      next press, and hold the record button (AUX light will go off hold button till it comes back on)
      now press and release the button you want to program on the dish remote. (example- volume up)
      now press and hold volume up on the tv remote until the tv light goes off, then on (make sure the vizeo sound bar remote is pointed at the small window)
      volume up is now programmed repeat with volume down—press and release vol dn on dish remote
      press and hold volume dn on the tv remote until the tv light goes off, then on
      repeat these two steps for all the buttons you want to program
      once all buttons are programmed, press and release another mode button (ex dvd) then wait the tv light will flash three times. All buttons should work.
      This can only be done once, so if you miss a button, you will need to start over at the beginning.
      Let me know if you need more help

    Press and hold the clear aux button at the top of the remote until the other clear buttons light up.
    The aux button should be blinking.
    While it is blinking, press in the code (http://www.mydish.com/support/apps/remotecodes....) and then the # button.
    The aux button should blink off at this point.
    Try the power button and volume buttons to make sure that they function.

    If that doesn't work, try the scan. Follow the same steps but instead of a code, press the power button. Then start pressing the up channel button once every second. This can take up to 15 mins. When it finally turns off, press # to save the code. Hope that helps. Unfortunately the remote isn't guaranteed to work with every electronic.
