Roamio Remote issues with Samsung TV

    Not sure if you have seen this. I tried all the codes with my Samsung plasma, and only 1 works. That's not the issue.

    What I notice is, when i hit Power, the light on my tv blinks so it is registering the signal, but it doesnt turn on. I literally have to hit the power button on the remote 3 times until it turns on.

    On the volume, with my old tivo remote, holding volume up makes the vol go up on the tv continuously. But with the RF remote, it only goes up 1 tick in volume if I hold the remote vol up.
    I am thinking that the IR blast on the remote is set to very short in order to preserve battery, but my tv isnt capturing a long enough burst of IR to turn on.

    I have NEVER had this problem with any other remote.

    I've got a 50" Samsung Plasma and remote code 0305 works like a champ. Same code works on the 67" Samsung DLP.

    The Roamio remote works fine with our Samsung LCD - exactly the same as our older TiVo remotes.

    Same here. Whatever the first code listed for Samsung is (0305, I think?) works perfectly with my Samsung LN46A750 LCD TV.

    Same here. The 1st Samsung code works on ALL 3 of my Samsung TV's.

    I had the same problem, until I changed the code to another one. I think it's 0305.

    Thanks for the tip! That volume issue was driving me nuts and I got tired of trying all the codes and never got to 0305 since one several before it at least worked... Just wasn't ideal.

    If you buy a Slide Pro it has learning capabilities so you can teach it any commands you want. (actually up to 3 commands per button) I use it to learn the input command on my Onkyo receiver which is not supported by the default codes.

    I have NOT tried this. Will give it a shot.

    I didn't want to spend another $50 bucks honestly. I may go this route if/when it is available on Amazon.

    I have a new Samsung TV and have tried all the Samsung codes on the Tivo remote. Best I can do is get the TV power working...volume doesn't work. I also tried the 0999 option. The interesting thing is that when I find a match with the latter option, I can control the volume just fine but as soon as I hit ENTER the volume buttons no longer work (TV Power still works). Any ideas why or what I can do to get this working?

    Thanks heifer624. I had scoffed before at the instructions saying to change batteries before programming. Turns out my batteries in the remote were on their way out. Wasn't affecting the Power button but affected the Volume and Mute buttons!

    TIP.... If you go to the Settings>System Info screen and scroll a couple frames it will tell you what the battery strength in your RF remote is. Although I don't know how accurate it is ;)
