How to Reprogram a Dish Remote to Work With a Samsung TV

If you're tired of juggling remote controls, you can eliminate at least one by programming your Dish Network remote to operate your Samsung television. You don't even need the manual to search for programming codes. Program the Dish Network remote by using the code-scanning feature. You can use the same method for programming the remote to control a VCR or other auxiliary device.
