New Samsung SMT-H3050 IR codes and sensors?

    Just received this new box from Time Warner Manhattan and none of the Samsung codes work, nor is it clear where the IR sensors are located. Tivo support was not very helpful, saying the new machines weren't in their matrix yet. The morass of getting info out of Time Warner is not encouraging.

    Has anyone succesfully figured out the IR codes and where the sensor(s) for this new model are?

    Many thanks

    I have the exact same issue.

    Leave the manufacturer of the box set to SAMSUNG but use code 00018. Its not fast, even when using the "-A" variety, but it works great. I think the lag is normal for digital cable. I'm just not used to it yet.

    I called Tivo support, got escalated to the tier-two folks, and after trying just about everything else, she suggested trying 00018 out of nowhere. I was completely stunned to find out it works.

    I was getting desperate, too. Time Warner Cable would not let me have my analog cable box back, and the only digital box they offered was the SMT-H3050. Naturally, they offered to give me their crappy DVR; but who wants that if you have Tivo?

    Just exchanged my Scientific Atlanta 2300 for the Samsung SMT-H3050 (Time Warner Cable in Manhattan), and ran into the same problem of TiVo being unable to change channels on the box.

    Is the process of entering the aformentioned 00018 code simple, i.e., as simple as entering a code into the remote? What is the procedure?

    I can't do a step-by-step, you'll see it on your screen just fine.

    Messages & Settings : Settings : Channels : Channel Changing

    Don't do the wizard, do the advanced setup. Pick the Samsung and follow along for adding the code. You'll see it. Also, specifying that the "channel changing" uses "000" does speed things up. For example, changing to channel 2 is "0002".

    Tivo support can walk you through it if you get confused.

    The 00018 code, which I learned from posting on this forum, worked for me. That was back in August, so it's a little disconcerting that the new boxes aren't on their matrix yet.

    The other thing you should consider is asking Time Warner to switch you to a Scientific Atlanta box. I had a lot of problems with my Samsung box, and the Time Warner technician was here yesterday. He switched me to a Scientific Atlanta box, saying that they have been having a lot of problems with the Samsungs, which are a new product.

    the work-around on this is simple, select "Scientific Atlanta" as your cable box brand, not Samsung, and it works like a charm. also be sure to select the four-digit channel changing.

    Its Jan 2011, and the code Tivo still gives you (00018) does NOT work, at least here in NYC.

    Scientific Atlanta Code 00048-B does work. You must get to the Tivo settings page that allows you to manually chose this code. Go to Tivo Help follow the trouble shooting guide for IR connectors.

    What a ridiculous waste of time all this is.

    Set up channel changing for Pioneer. This works fine with my Samsung SMT-H3050 cable box on Time Warner in Manhattan. Go figure.

    TWC has recently pushed software updates onto their cable boxes. My guess is they are standardizing all cable boxes to work with one kind of remote.
