Sony Audio Receiver Codes for DISH Network remote??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just got a brand new Sony STR-DG510 Audio Receiver to go along with my new Panasonic TH-58PX60U Plasma. Everything works great with the exception of the remotes. Obviously trying to reduce the number of remotes I have to have laying around or to use so here's the problem (question). I want to re-program my DISH Network remote to simply turn on/off and control the volume on the audio receiver using the AUX button on the DISH remote and I can't get it done. I've tried all the codes in the DISH book and I've called Sony. Still no luck. Any ideas?

sony changed the codeset their receivers use 4 or 5 years ago, new codeset is AV2, many of the receivers can be switched back to the older codeset AV1. Since the majority can switch, remote makers aren't including the new factory default codeset in their remotes. Neither is sony, none of their oem or universal remotes has this codeset yet.

Yours may not be able to switch, or if can only the receiver can switch, you'll lose the use of the sony oem remote. Check your manual or this thread:

Once you switch to AV1 codeset, the preset codes in the dish remote will work.
