Hi @yancyd.

Welcome, thank you for reaching out to Sonos Community.

You can follow this guide Set up a new TV remote with Sonos home theater speakers

Let us know if it works. If you need help with any other information, please be sure to let us know.


Note that only one set of IR signals can be recognized, so if you’ve previously set up your Sonos to recognize your TV remote, you need to program your Dish and Vizio remotes to control your TV as well. That way, there is the single set of commands, so that the Sonos can recognize them. 

Further, the IR command can only be read by the Beam, so they’d only have an effect on the room that the Beam is part of. If you have the Ones set up as a different ‘room’ in the Sonos app, the remote commands won’t affect them.
