I have a Samsung TV, and we lost the remote that came with it. Is it possible to program a Rogers remote to control the channels? We have basic cable, no Rogers box.
Technicaly, yes.. at least for BASIC functions... most likely.
You would have to try it really.. as some TVs it doesnt like to work with sometimes.
You would have to obtain say a used remote from someone.. as you cant buy them seperately.
(though currently with no box at all.. you are still on analog. Eventually, ALL analog channels will be removed (there are quite a number gone already). You will have to look at getting a digital box (rental, buy, new/used, etc), or at MIN, one of the FREE DTA's from rogers)
Go to this page
Choose the remote you have.
Then there should be instructions there.. as well as a look up for the possible correct code for your TV itself, etc.
I have a Samsung Smart TV and use both remotes, but opted out of letting the Samsung one control the PVR. The Rogers remote is much more ergonomic. You will never get one remote to cover all the functions of the other one. But have a look on eBay. THere are a lot of inexpensive Samsung remotes there.
Yes, the Harmony. You can solve most problems if you can afford to throw enough money at them.
Actually the rogers remote CAN do a lot of things its just highly UNDOCUMENTED and requires research. I have discovered how to program my rogers remote to do more "ADVANCED" functions of my TV set and other devices such as Blue Ray player, etc. It got to the point where I can even Eject my Blue Ray Disc using the Rogers remote in DVD mode. Just try figuring out how to do that, it requires a lot of patience, and dedication, which a lot of people likely are not going to bother with.
its call Unlocking Channel Control.
Press CBL, then press and hold the setup button until the light flashes twice
Enter 973, the CBL light will flash twice
Press 'Channel Down' button, CBL light will flash four times
Now program the TV button for your Samsung tv, and when you press channel up/down, it will change channels on your tv, not a cable box.
