I would try exactly what SuperAIRBORNEMan suggested. This is called a code scan and the remote try's every code it knows. If you have a 20.0 or 21.0 remote (black remote with red, blue, yellow, and green keys on the front), you may be able to teach the remote the commands you need. Simply follow the procedure linked here: http://www.mydish.com/support/teach-learning-re...
If you don't have a learning remote or the learning procedure doesn't seem to help, it is possible that your TV isn't compatible. Emerson TVs are exceptionally hard to program the remotes for because they use so many different types of remotes. Hopefully you find this information helpful.

try the power scan listed above, it will give you the best shot to catch a code that isn't listed. good luck

In my experience, most Emerson TV's will not work with Dish remotes. Sometimes (not often) you can get lucky with the power (or code) scan method mentioned above. I used to have 3 Emerson TVs and I could not get any of them to respond to our remotes. There are a couple of other brands that are almost as bad; Symphonic and ILO.
