Dish Makes Voice Search Easier With New Remote

Dish 54.0 Voice Remote Control

DISH just released a second-generation voice remote control (model 54.0) to ship with all new Hopper DVRs. It features voice search and command, motion-activated backlighting and Remote Finder. Simply press and hold the button to enable voice recognition and speak the commands for an easier TV experience. Also, there are two customizable buttons for shortcuts, like Netflix, parental controls and video-on-demand.

The remote interprets natural language to control navigation, search and content selection. It is compatible with all generations of DISH’s Hopper DVR, as well as Joey, Wireless Joey, 4K Joey and Super Joey clients. Note, this remote is an updated version of the voice remote DISH unveiled July 2016.

DISH 54.0 is also a universal remote control with learning capabilities, and can control up to two IR devices (TV/AUX models). The unit features voice control and a RF4CE remote control finder that emits beeping noises. All buttons are backlit, and battery life is anticipated to last four to six months on two AA batteries. It is designed to easily fit in the palm of a user’s hand with dimensions of 6.50”(L) x 2.17”(W) x 0.91″(D).

How to program customizable buttons on the voice remote:

  1. The two customizable buttons are located near the bottom of the remote, and are marked with a Diamond and a Double Diamond.
  2. After turning on a Hopper or Joey, click a customizable button (from anywhere within the user interface). A pop-up menu will appear on the right side of the screen with a list of 12 possible shortcuts.
  3. Scroll to the desired shortcut, then click Select. Once set, the customizable buttons will perform the selected function any time they are pressed.
  4. To reprogram, hold down a customizable button for two seconds. The pop-up menu will reappear on the right side of the screen with the list of 12 shortcuts.

Price and Availability

New DISH customers will receive the remote with a Hopper at no extra cost, while existing customers can upgrade for $20.
