After completing the TiVo setup, my TiVo remote controls everything (TV power, volume and mute) with the exception of channel up and down. When I go to Remote Control Setup and choose "Part 1: TV power, volume, and mute" to select the brand of my TV set from the list, Samsung is not one of the TV brands in the list. How do I setup the TIVO remote for channel up and down for a Samsung TV? Thanks in advance.

On the second part, TiVo does the channel changing, not the TV. You feed the TV via HDMI, Component or Composite to a TV input. The TiVo remote can control the Input on most, but not all, televisions.

On the first part, I'm surprised a Premiere doesn't include Samsung. I have one, but it's not running right now.

Something is wrong in your steps. It is impossible that Samsung would be missing from the TV list. Perhaps you’re in the A/V setup for receivers and amps?

The previous poster is trying to tell you that the TiVo remote can’t change channels on any TV. It can only change channels on a TiVo.

Nevermind...I figured it out. After completing the channel scan the channel list is generated, but it's not listed in the guide until I "Mark channels you receive". After doing so, the channels marked show up in the guide list and the channel up and down works.
