I know the system better than the system!
Some TV brands do allow you to program the TV remote to control your DISH receiver. This will only work, however, if you are using the TV1 location (TV physically connected to the receiver) and if the remote is addressed to 1. So, if this is the case, hit the system info button on the front of the receiver and it will pull up the system info screen. If the Green TV1 icon has a number other than 1 in it then you must press and hold the SAT button until the lights light up and then press 1 and # and then record until the TV1 icon becomes a 1. Then consult the Vizio manual for the rest.
