How to Change Dish Remote Frequences


Some Dish Network remote controls work using radio frequencies instead of infrared signals like regular remotes. Radio frequency remotes don't need line of sight to control the receiver, but this can cause problems if there is another receiver or remote nearby. The user's receiver can receive commands from other remotes on the same frequency. The user can change the remote's frequency through the menus on the receiver.

  • Turn on your Dish Network receiver and your TV.

  • Press the "Menu" button to open the main menu on the receiver.

  • Select the "System Setup" option.

  • Open the "Installation" option.

  • Select "System Info" to open the system information screen. Look at the bottom of the screen and you will find the frequency of your remote next to "Remote Addr." By default, it is set to frequency 1.

  • Press and hold the "SAT" button on the remote until the button blinks.

  • Type in the number of the new frequency using the numeric keypad.

  • Press the "#" button until the "SAT" button blinks three times, then press "REC" to record the change. The number next to "Remote Addr" on the screen will change to the new frequency.
