Question about Samsung TV Remote Control

2 Answers

Samsung 7150 tv remote has very limited range with some functions

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.

Try an ir extender, something may be interfering with the rf frequency between the remote and the tv

    Not sure what that is. If the remote works fine for everything else, I'm not sure that a range extender is the answer for the remote when using apps on the tv. has anyone else had this problem?

SOURCE: Changing Samsung Remote Codes (2 TV's Same Remote Frequency)

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.

Press the BD Receiver / TV button twice in quick succession.

How do I download movie on a smart tv via the Internet


First you have to hook up the tv to the internet either using WiFi or an ethernet cable from your modem or router. Not all tvs are WiFi ready, so you may need a cable. Follow the directions in your manual to complete internet setup. Using your smart tv remote control, navigate to apps. You can choose Hulu, Netflix, or many other services for watching shows and movies. You must sign up for their services using your email address and sometimes pay for them with Paypal or a credit card. There may be some apps on your smart tv that are free and do not require signup. Using your remote, navigate around and try different apps and services and see what you can find. The apps with the best content usually require that you sign up, but a smart tv will have some built in "free" stuff to watch.

YouTube App - Top 3 video watching iPad apps

Air Video App - Top 4 video watching iPad apps

Ustream App - Top 6 video watching iPad apps
Ustream is another popular service for watching live videos on the iPad. The company plans to bring its Ustream Viewer app to the iPad, offering functionality similar to its existing iPhone application.

Flixster shows you movie times at your local theaters and lets you buy tickets. It also shows ratings from Rotten Tomatoes and lets you play trailers for upcoming films. Sometimes it can be annoying, like when it pops up an advert for a film that you have to dismiss before you can use the app.

Note: iPad does not support HD video, if you want to watch HD video on your new iPad, you need to convert video to iPad with some video converter.

How do I get Netflix on my tv


First you need a Netflix account. Then, if you have a smart TV, it needs to be connected to the internet and have the Netflix app. If your TV is not smart, your DVD player probably has Netflix on it and that needs to be connected to the internet. Then you have to log into Netflix on your computer and authorize the new device. They will give you an activation code to enter on the device.
