Question about Akai PTH5498 54" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
On the Akai PT429HD? No, you need the original Samsung, as only it has the button to save convergence settings. I got mine for ten bucks. Without doing a proper convergence your set is kind of wasted, so that ten bucks is worth it. I see the price of this remote has spiked lately, so I'd start with ebay first of all.
If you've tried my convergence procedure on the Akai remote and can find a button that saves the settings (the cursor will blink and then center) then you don't need to buy a Samsung one. The only universal remote that has a chance of doing the job would be more expensive than the real one.
