    Make sure your DVD player is on then hold down the top DVD button until all the top lights lite up. Then press the big red power button and then press channel up button until your unit turns off. This should work, if not go to and choose the remote or receiver that you have. If you don't already have an account there, it is free to create one. (press "menu" twice and you will see the receiver R00 number and S00 Numbers listed)
    Hope this helps.

    If it's programed use the DVR buttons just like a normal remote if not. Get ready, Point & aim the remote at the DVD player. Press & hold the DVD button till all 4 lites lite up. Then press the big red power button. Then press the channel up slowly till the DVD player turns off. Once it does press the # button. Then turn ur DVD player back on using the same big red power button. Ur done. Thank u for being a dish cust.
