Re: Insignia TV Remote Control Codes - Dish VIP 722 DVR

Hello ljg442,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us share that you’re having some trouble programing your 21.0 IR Dish remote to your new 50” Insignia TV. I understand that can be kind of frustrating. I’d be happy to see how I can assist you further.

 

Using the details you’ve shared it appears that you’ve already tried all the codes that are available for your unit. Can you please ensuring you’re following the steps as noted here on Dish’s website? In particular adding a 0 prior to any of the 3-digit codes.

 

 

Respectfully,

 

Mariah

Re: Insignia TV Remote Control Codes - Dish VIP 722 DVR

Yes , I did try using 0 before the codes. That is used when programming to the "AUX" button instead of the "TV" button. Neither approach worked however. I hate to have DISH send a technician for such a simple thing, plus the $$$ service charge.

Thanks!

Hello ljg442,

 

Working with Dish would be the best option available at this time. Have you tried to give them a ring to see if they share some troubleshooting steps over the phone? I completely understand your frustration on this matter, however, we’d only be able to guarantee that the remote that came with your TV can control it fully. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your new 50” Insignia TV. We’d be happy to see how we might be able to help you answer them!

 

Kindly,

 

Mariah

Re: Insignia TV Remote Control Codes – Official Thread

I purchased an actual insignia universal remote. It works, however I am not able to do anything with it but turn it on and change the volume and mess with the settings. It won't let me use the channel buttons or control any other things with it. And there is no code to this remote. I haven't seen a code listing for the insignia universal remote controls. Why is that? I have a box for my bedrooms cable with a remote for the box as well. Shouldn't my universal remote start the box and the TV depending on what I set the remote up for ?

Hello Patricia,

 

Welcome to Community@Insignia!

 

For your RCA remote, please try the following codes:12049, 11423, 11564, 10171, 10463, 11892, 11963, 12184, 12417. If these codes do not work, we recommend using your remote's learning feature if applicable.
