A Dish Network remote 3.0 IR will control more than just the satellite box. The Dish Network remote can also control devices such as your DVD player and TV set. This will give you the option of only using one remote for all of the devices that make up your entertainment system. In order to control your TV with a Dish Network Remote 3.0 IR, that remote will first need to be programmed to the television set by cycling through different codes until you come upon the correct code.


Step 1

Turn your TV on by using the remote for your TV or by pressing the "Power" button that is on that television set.
