    Default [DISH] Program volume control, DVR & Kenwood Receiver

    I am trying to help my parents program their DISH DVR remote control so that the new Kenwood Audio receiver is the volume controlled when vol +/- is pressed in SAT mode.

    Does anyone know how to do this? I have the remote already programmed to control the receiver in AUX mode.

    Mr. Crimson,

    You will not be able to accomplish that task unless you can get the Kenwood programmed on the "TV" button.

    If you just push the AUX button, then change the volume, then change back to sat button, that should work.

    Let us know what you find out!

    The 21.0 learning remote is your answer.

    You first program this remote for the TV in TV mode. Then have the remote "learn" the signals for volume up and down along with mute. It will now operate ONLY these features on the A/V receiver and not the TV.

    The only problem now is if you ever want to control the volume on the TV again, you must go back to the real TV remote or program the 21.0 all over. Also, the A/V receiver can only be turned on and off in AUX mode. I am sure you don't want to change that as you will have no way to turn the TV on or off.

    It is available from Dish for $19.99 plus S&H. Bottom line is under $25.00.

    I long for the day when a single remote will operate everything. Of all the previous "All-in-one" universal remotes I've owned, I've still had to have a second remote to control a TV or set top box.

    Default This worked for me

    On your Dish remote, press and hold the device button that you want to have audio control while in SAT mode (in your case AUX).

    Hold button until all the buttons light up (about 5 seconds).

    Then press "#", press volume "+", press "0" (zero), press "#".

    The device light should blink 3 times if done correctly.

    My control: EchoStar 20.0 IR - 158926

    Hello and welcome to DTV USA Manna.

    You have the predesessor to the 21.0. It works pretty much the same way but I don't believe they are available for sale anymore except used. Overall, how do you like it and how much did it cost?

    Just to clear things up a little, the 20.0 is a current model of remote for tv1 on a VIP series receiver. When we introduced these they were available with only the VIP "K" series, they will now start rolling out with all VIP models. The only difference between a 20.0 and a 21.0 is the 21.0 remote is UHF compatible, which is why we ship them as replacements this way a customer will receive a remote with all of the capability they need.
