I suggest you utilize the following website to properly programme your remote for the STB and the TV.
There are steps for setting up the remote for each device, then for "Global Volume Lock" and for "Master Power".
It sounds like the correct code for your TV is not yet programmed and then you can set up "Global Volume Lock".
It's also possible to download the simplified manual from the website. Sometimes, depending on the make/model of the TV, it may be necessary to try several codes from the operating manual to see which one functions best for your particular device/TV.
I tried what you suggested using code 0812.
I can now control the volume with the Rogers remote only after the TV button is pressed.It won't work if you press cable.
Needs to be on cable to turn off TV and cable box together,I guess that's normal.
When the TV is turned off there's a small red light that stays on at the bottom right corner of the TV.
When the TV is on the light is off.
That didn't happen before.
Should that light be on when the TV is off?
1. I can now control the volume with the Rogers remote only after the TV button is pressed.It won't work if you press cable.
2. Needs to be on cable to turn off TV and cable box together,I guess that's normal.
3. When the TV is turned off there's a small red light that stays on at the bottom right corner of the TV.
1. That's because you don't have global volume lock properly programmed. Go to the operating manual and use the 993 sequence to properly set up global volume lock. See step 4 of the OM (I believe you said you had the 1056):
2. Yes, that's normal.
3. Depends on the TV. Some TVs have a light on when they're on. Others have the light on when the TV is off. Check what the TV does when you use the actual TV remote. Make sure that the TV and STB are in "sequence" to utilize the Master Power key that controls both the TV and STB.
Step 4 says,
Note:Volume control defaults to TV.Perform this step only if you wish to use an audio receiver,amp,or home theater surround system for volume control when watching cable.
I don't have any of those things.
Is it still worth doing?
I checked and the red light being on when the TV is off is normal for Samsung.
It indicates that the TV has fully powered off.
(on a side note,has there been trouble with the forum?
I could not post a reply last night after numerous attempts.)
Somehow your remote is no longer "locked" to the TV. Therefore please do the Global Volume Lock to the TV (Press the TV button instead of AUD) and you'll be all set.
These instructions were also provided to you at the end of post 218.
The operating manual link and URC link I provided in earlier posts is a simplified version. The full operating manual is available at the following link with complete instructions. See page 16 for Global Volume Lock.
Note that you have posted in the RF Remote thread and your 1056 remote is not RF, but we're trying to help you anyway.
Frustrating situation to say the least.
Samsung user manual provided with the TV is a joke,with no info to program different remotes.
(the Samsung remote provided with the TV is a joke as well as it has no number buttons).
Samsung e-manual that you can bring up on screen has no info on programming remotes as far as I can see.I couldn't find anything there.
The guy that gave me the 0812 Samsung code is awesome.Thank you!
That got things working good enough for now.
Samsung won't or can't give any codes for different remote manufactures to work with their TV's in an e-mail they sent me today.
That Rogers 991 code procedure I tried initially is not fully effective.
1. Samsung user manual provided with the TV is a joke,with no info to program different remotes.
2. (the Samsung remote provided with the TV is a joke as well as it has no number buttons).
3. That Rogers 991 code procedure I tried initially is not fully effective.
1. That's why I gave you the link to the operating manual for the 1056 remote in post 225. Why aren't you using it?
2. That is typical (that it's useless for other devices)
3. The code is 993, not 991, per page 16 of the operating manual for the 1056 remote. You have been given this procedure at least three times - in my posts and at the bottom of post 218. If you use that procedure to properly programme the 1056 remote for controlling volume on your TV, you'll no longer need to press the TV button at the top. Rather the remote will have implemented "Global Volume Lock" and you can leave the remote in CBL mode.
I never thought I'd be getting this new RF remote, but I stopped in at the Rogers store yesterday to see if I could get a replacement for the old 4-button remote the grandkids lost and kept borrowing mine. Turns out all that was available anymore was the new RF remote and that's what she gave me. So naturally I gave the kids my old 5-button remote and kept the new one for myself. After setting it up it works great with my new Samsung smart TV and SA8300HD after getting used to a few different button locations. However, there is one anomaly. To access the diagnostic screens on the 8300 with the remote you press Pause for 10 seconds, then Page Up when the mail icon flashes on the PVR display. That all works, but the remote Exit button no longer exits the diagnostic screens, only the Exit button on the box itself.
Does your Exit button work?
I have now determined that the Exit button on the new Champion Plus RF Remote does not work with my SA8300HD PVR. It works fine with my Smart TV functions but does nothing for Cable. Can anyone confirm this? What PVR or STB are you using?
