Dish Network Remotes
I’ve had a Dish Network receiver for, well, for a long time. Probably for eight or nine years now; I got it pretty soon after moving into the house here in Santa Clara and have had it ever since. Initially we liked them because they carried the Comedy Channel ( which eventually became Comedy Central ) and a couple other channels which the other satellite service didn’t.
I’ve got a receiver downstairs which the Tivo uses exclusively, and a couple others up in the attic which get controlled with the UHF remote controls. The RCA output from each of these goes into a doohickey which puts each one on a ‘real’ channel ( in the 90 – 99 range ), and a coax cable runs to all of the TVs in the house. That way, I can tune any TV in the house to one of the various channels from the attic; and Loretta and I can each watch something different in different places in the house. One of the receivers is a Dish Network DVR ( which sucks compared to the Tivo ), but I have it record stuff like the Daily Show and the Colbert Report, and I can watch these from any of the TVs in the house.
Now, I typed all of that just so I could feel ok about saving a link to the damn pdf for the UHF remotes somewhere, since I seem to need to find it every 3-4 months so I can reprogram them.
