did you get a new remote?
well the vcr, and aux shouldnt work
does your remote still turn the tv on / off and volume ?
you may have left your remote near you and you fell asleep and accidentally held the SAT button and push a number which reprogram the code for the remote
well go to your receiver..open the panel
push menu twice
a system info should pop up
now take your dish remote
push the SAT button till all the lights up
push record button 6 times
now push the cancel button..if it works..your remote is now programmed again.
if it doesn t work try process again..if it still doesnt work, you may have a defective remote.
good luck.0 comments

It sounds like either your remote has gone bad, or you need to reprogram your remote. I will be more than happy to troubleshoot this with you further! Please send me an e-mail at: Daniel.Busa@DISH.com
I've been a tech for Dish Network for 12 years & Directv for 3 years. I also was a Paratrooper (509th)...
Let's re-program the remote. 1st point the remote at the TV. Press and hold the TV button at the very top till all 4 lites lite up, then push the big red power button. Next push the channel up button slowly till ur TV turns off. Once it does hot the pound button. Then turn the TV back on using the big red power button. Hope this is helpful.
