    Very good idea Ken, we will have to try this, when the grandson comes they get sticky, now if I can find one big enough for my laptop keyboard.

    Two choices: don't let grandson play/use remote, don't let wife wash dishes!
    (Other wise, dry out the remote and call DISH and tell them it doesn't work. Don't volunteer that it took a bath!)

    For future cleaning --- use (alcohol content) wet wipes to clean the remote exterior.

    Or, put it inside a plastic bag.

    Look up the model number on Ebay. I bought a couple of them last year. It even comes with a easy to follow instructions sheet to reprogram the remote to the TV and receiver.

    Dish has replaced my remote and DVR free of charge several times but I dont know if we have the maintenance agreement or not. When looking at a replacement, look on the back at the top and look at the xx IR number. Mine are 20.1IR and 20.3IR and they only control the receiver that they are linked to.

    i doubt it would work.. the dish remote is uhf and ir


    in any case.. called em today while I was at home for lunch.. told them the remote didn't work.. they said they'd send me a new one.. didn't mention a charge?

    did say I'd have to do some song and dance to program it to the rcvr though.

    will see..

    I teach them the codes from the original remote, then pull the batteries from the original remote and store it (usually behind the device it controls) for future needs.

    X10 stuff is cheap (and cheaply made, no argument there) but it works pretty well.

    Or just try a universal remote. They usually have codes already built in for most products theses days and non-learning ones can be had for twenty bucks.

    Ah, yes. I forgot about the UHF. A friend of mine has Dish and mentioned that once.

    They will send you one,but they need to know if its infra red,or through the walls, remote one or remote two. if remote one or remote two is set up for infra red,then all the remotes on one or two must be infra-red, no mixing. I just went through all this with dish after relocating my reciever to the downstairs den.
