Question about Samsung TV Remote Control
When using the remote to watch stuff on netflix or other apps on the samsung 55" 7150 tv, the range on the remote is reduced to about 2 feet. You can't do anything like change the volume, ff, play, stop, etc... unless you walk all the way up to the tv and push the buttons. No luck with samsung customer service so far either. I also switched the remote out with another one from Costco, where I got the tv. Anyone else have this issue?
There is currently no solution.
See many reports of same problem here... http://forums.cnet.com/7723-13973_102-580746/samsung-remote-not-working-properly/
Samsung has know of this for many months. They claim they can not reproduce the problem... yet a visit to Future Shop Demo TV confirmed the problem
Add your voice to the growing mass of unsatisfied customers here, on CNET, adn directly to Samsung.
It is sad that a multi-thousand dollar TV can not strem Video and respond to a remote control at the same time.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)

There is NO solution to this problem. I'm an electronics engineer. I have three Samsung TV and IR remote extenders. It is a continual problem. If someone told you could "re-program" the Samsung remote, they must have thought you could write assembly level programming code.
There is NO incentive for Samsung to modify their highly popular, simple, cheap remote system.
Believe me, I even tried putting polarizing filters over the IR sensors but the ones for cameras do not polarize light at IR frequencies.

I HAVE THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM.
Confirmed with Samsung tech support. Problem is with remote. to fix, simple take the batteries out of the remote. Press and hold the UP Volume button for 2 Mintues (no cheating, it has to be at least 2 minutes), this Reset's the Remote Control. Put the batteries back in. Bob's your uncle. all fixed.

Step 1: Remove the batteries
Step 2: Press the power button (red button) on the remote control 5 times.
Step 3: Replace the batteries and your remote should work fine.

Press the BD Receiver / TV button twice in quick succession. The light should now be orange which indicates it will operate the Home Cinema system....Pressing it twice again in quick succession will turn the light green indicating it will operate the TV.....Unfortunately the useless operator manual with the system does not tell you this....
