How do I get my att&t u-verse remote control to recognize my 51 inch samsung TV?
The remote can't recognize the tv, it doesn't have that capability. If you want to use it to command that tv you must program it accordingly. Basically you must introduce the code that corresponds to the set of commands that your tv uses - if they are present in the remote.
This is the programming procedure:
1 - hold down the TV button on the Uverse remote. As you are holding the TV button, press and release the OK button. You know you have done this right when all the mode keys flash twice.
2 - Find the 4 digit code for your device in the User guide that was given you when the Uverse was set up, or online at
3 - At this point, the TV mode button should flash three times. Try to turn the TV off by pushing the power button. If it does not turn off, try a different code. If it turns off then turn it on with the remote and test the other buttons. If they don't work then try a new code.There are a lot of codes for Samsung in there, try them all until you find the one that has the best compatibility - most buttons that can be used.
4 - If none of the codes for your device work, try manually searching for a code. Go back and repeat steps 1 and 2. Then enter 922. Hold play as the remote cycles through various codes. When your TV turns off, push enter to memorize it. This generic code will provide just a basic control, if you really need full control then you will need another remote.
