Good Morning,

I have a problem with my Dish TV T1020. It will not recognise the remote control. The remote can be used to turn it on, however one it boots, it is no longer recognised. As a result I cannot even upgrade the firmware.

Yes I have changed the batteries in the remote.

I have had this problem intermittantly in the past, however it seems to have locked out the remote for good this time.

Has anyone else had this problem, and is there a fix out there?

I had a problem like this recently, It was caused by an IR extender that looked like it was picking up interference. Remote worked fine via the IR extender, but would not work directly with actual satellite device unless I unplugged the extender.

Check there isn't another remote being used at the same time (e.g. under a book, etc) Had this occur for me with a tv - some buttons would work fine, others wouldn't)
