    Take the blue 2 remote to ur 625. Use ur #1 remote to do a remote address change. Using ur # 1 remote push the menu button, then press the numbers # 6-1-3. The us the info screen. Grab ur #2 remote and point it at the 625, press and hold the SAT button till all the lights lite up, Push 04 or 05 or 06 what # u want as long as it's not the same number as TV 1. After u push ur number, go to the puund button and push it. Last step is push the rec button until ur remote address changes for TV 2. Hope this helps u.

    You can do a code search. This works on most tv's.
    Make sure the TV is on
    press the TV 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 tv turns off.
    (if you accidentally go past the code, sometimes you can press the channel down button to go back, but if not you have to start over.)
    press the # button and you are done.

    You need to program the remote to the receiver. Take your TV2 remote to the TV1 location and use the TV1 remote to bring up the info page.
    Press menu twice on tv1 remote.
    Then press and hold the SAT button on tv2 remote until all the clear buttons lite up and then release the sat button.
    press a two digit number (like 07) and then the pound button. Sat button should blink three times.
    Now press the record button two or three times the number on the screen should change to whatever number you selected.
    Press cancel a couple of times on the TV1 remote and you are done.

    if you are still having problems try taking your tv2 remote to the tv1. on the tv1 remote press menu two times. now with the tv2 remote press record. if it didn't change the remote address (the number next to the remote 2 box) then program it by:

    pressing the sat button until all the mode buttons light up
    type in a number under ten that is different from the remote 1 address
    press # and wait for 3 flashes
    now press record and it should change.

    to test, press one of the arrow buttons on the tv2 remote and see if the 2 on the screen blinks or even press the big power button and look for the blue light to turn off. hope this helps
