Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

I am guessing that this tv is new and this is your first time trying to program the remote to control the tv, there are generally 1-2 ways to program, via manual code entry and code search entry. Found here ---->

Note that not all devices can be programmed, some do not work with certain remotes, when a remote is made the codes are programmed into the remote, if a device is had that the remote does not have the codes for then there is no way to make it work with that specific remote.

Please try programming as I have sent and if you do the programming correctly and it does not work then it cannot be programmed for that tv or the remote is defective (such as will not work with other devices either (other than the dish receiver).

Thank you!
- Joe
