Your Samsung universal remote probably has a code search feature you can use to find a code for your Panasonic TV. If you search through all codes stored in the remote without success, you may have to use another universal remote to get results.
Samsung TV's have Anynet automatic input switching. This severely conflicts with the Harmony Remote as they both do the same jobs; Switch inputs automatically. We would like for you to disable this feature on your Samsung TV using your original remote, so the Harmony Remote will work properly.
Disable Samsung Anynet+
1. Press your Tools Button. 2. Scroll down to Anynet and press your Select Button. 3. Once on the Anynet screen, please press your Left/Right Button(s) to select the Off Setting on the Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC) 4. Scroll down to the Auto Turn Off and select No.
Once this is completed, please turn off your TV and all device and power them back on using the Harmony Remote.
The functions that have to do with the TV the remote will 'When in the TV mode' will do all the Panasonic functions. When you switch the remote to the Sony or what ever manufacture DVD you programed it to. It will work with that DVD only and the same with the VCR and so on. Hope it all makes sense!

Check your UHF antanae on the back of the reciver to make sure it is standing straight up. you can also see if the tv 2 remote works at the tv 1 location to check for interference. if you have a dvr check to make sure shared view is disabled by pressing menu option 6 then option 2 and the disable. if this option is greyed out, put your reciever into single mode by pressing the mode button and try again. if none of this works, If your tv 2 remote still does not work at tv 1 ( ie: changes chan at tv 2 location at rec but not at tv 2. then readdress your remote by pressing menu, opt 6, opt 1 and opt 3, this will be system info. do this at tv 1 location, then with tv 2 rem in hand, press the sat key till all buttons light up at top, then release, enter any number 1-15 that is different from rem 1 add. then press pound. then press record 3 times to see if number changes for rem add. 2. if not then you have a defective rec. call 1-800-333-3474 for technical assistance.
If they are exactly the same model and your component setup is the same as well (for example, you have exactly the same TVs and they each have the same DVD player as well, and the inputs-outputs have all been configured the same way), then the 'Watch TV' activity you set up will successfully control all of the setups in each room. But, let's say that you have the same TV in each room, but in one situation you have a connected DVD player and in another you have a home theatre and still the other is only the TV by itself with no additional devices. In this case, you would set up 3 different Activites and call them 'Watch TV 1", "Watch TV 2", etc. Each activity would be configured to use the same make & model television, but would also include the devices that were unique to each room's configuration. Hope this helps!
Samsung has recently acknowledged an issue with 8 series LCD TVs (e.g. LN52A860). When the TV is first turned on, it outputs strong IR interference which can render the Harmony unable to control your devices for several minutes. After the TV is warmed up, the interference dissipates and the Harmony will work correctly again.
To determine if your Samsung television is causing the issue:
1. Start an Activity that uses your Samsung TV Confirm the Harmony is not controlling your devices 2. Completely cover the screen of your television with a blanket or dark colored sheet 3. Try changing the channel. If the device now responds, the television is interfering with your devices. Please contact Samsung for support
It is possible that by disabling certain features on your TV can also resolve the issue. Features that may cause interference with your remote include:
1. DNR/Active Control 2. Power Saving Mode
To disable either of these features, please consult the user manual for your TV.
Update your Harmony remote control software on your PC to the latest. Go into the TV device settings. The software should recognize if there is an update to your TV's IR commands. Try the same things with the DVR.
It's also possible the TV and/or DVR are locking up due to IR commands that are being sent too quickly. The remote has a setting for the delay between commands sent to the same device as well as the delay between commands sent to different devices. Try adjusting these settings:
In the Harmony remote software on your PC, click the "Devices" tab.
For the "TV" device, click the "Settings" button.
Click the dot next to "Adjust the delays" and click Next.
Adjust the "Inter-key" and "Inter-device" delays to something higher and click Next.
