By the way, I contacted both Dish Satellite and Sony, and they were unable to provide me a code number to program the satellite remote. They said to do the auto search on the sat. remote. I tried this without success.
I had the same problem with a Lexicon processor. I had to get a Universal MX350, glad I did it is a much better remote and far easier for everyone to use. I just had a guest that was able to pick it up and operate the system.
