Question about Samsung AH5900092W Remote Control
I have a Samsung 50" Plasma downstairs and have just bought a Samsung37" LCD for upstairs.
Problem is I also have a remote extender in both rooms to control the PVR downstairs. Everytime I press the power button, channel numbers etc, it also switches the TV on downstairs and changes downstairs etc....
On my Panasonic DVD recorders which I have in each room I am able to change the remote code..... can this be done someway on either of the Samsung TV's???
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 2 LG tvs next to each other, and I used pieces of transparent sheet of plastic with polarizer on the tv IR receiver AND the remote. if you just put the sheets on the receiver, it won't work. The trick here is that when both sheets are in the same space (both vertical or both horizontal) the signal will get through, if they are not (i.e. one vertical and the other horizontal) light (or IR wave) won't pass, ergo, it won't get to one of the devices. you have to put one of the tv polarizer sheets rotated 90 degrees (or one vertical and one horizontal), that way, when you tilt your remote (pointing the tv, but rotated 90 degrees), it will control one tv, and in normal position (pointing the tv and rotated 0 degrees) it will control the other TV. of course, this works if you have nothing between the remote and the tv; if you have a repeater, I don't know what will happen, but I think it won't work (except of course if you do the same thing of putting the plastic sheet in the repeater). You can find plastic sheets from cell phone screens, old calculators, clocks, etc. If this thing doesn't work, it means that your polarizer is not good, and you need to find another one. Hope I had helped a tiny bit :)
