ok so now i have tried changing the frequnecy of my remote from RF to IR. Impossible. I have just spent a half hour on the phone wiht my satellite provider trying to change the remote, she told me it is noy possible unless i buy a new $50 remote. Not going to do that.
I have also tried using all possible DISH network numbers that you suggested. Nothing,.
\any other recommendations??
I found this on another site. It solved my problem. It might solve yours.
So I went to my 9242 Menu - Sys Setup 6 - Installation 1 - Sys Info 3 - and saw that my IR Setting for my remote was "11".
Thank you for utilizing our online answer forums. We apologize that you are experiencing issues getting a remote to work with your Slingbox 350 and Satellite box. I first want to let you know if your satellite box is not setup for IR and will only accept RF then no matter what remote you use, none will work this is because the Slingbox will only work with IR commands. Secondly you will want to make sure the satellite box is setup up for remote address code 1. This is because all the listed models in our system are remote code for address 1. The articles I have for you talk about DISH and Directv, Meaning DISH and Bell use the same satellite boxes, you will be able to follow any DISH remote control info I can provide.
Here is are some links to help you:
Hope this helps
