I've searched all the forums and cannot find an exact answer to the problem. Best I can tell is that the Samsung TV's are sometimes unique with the volume control.
Has anyone got this simple function to work? There must be lots of Direct TV HR20 or 21 users on this thread.
I just had Directv (aka Derelict-tv) setup in my house on my 67a750 this past saturday night, and I MUST SAY, it has been completely unsatisfactory and UNACCEPTABLE SERVICE in EVERY POSSIBLE WAY from the install to customer-no-service and i would HIGHLY
recommend anyone considering Direct tv to STAY AWAY. (but we wont go into that here tho)
ALL that aside, the tech did program the dtv remote to work with my 67a750, however not fully, and a customer srvc rep claims its not supposed to anyway.
I think he entered the wrong sammy remote code for my 67a750, but I can power on and off, and change ch and vol with the actual ch and vol buttons on the dtv remote when the remote is in TV mode,
However pressing menu brings up the menu, but using select or any of the direction arrows only controls the vol and ch which are already assigned to hmmm i dunno , VOL AND CH! so all i can do with the DTV remote for the 67a750 is CH, VOL, ON, OFF.
again I think the tech just entered in the wrong code, and I couldn't care less cause I plan on getting a Harmony 880 anyway. but wanted to answer your question.
GO into the dtv menu and go to remote and setup the remote correctly, You can pick the tv manufacturer and it will give you some univ. remote codes to try, compare those with whatever may be in the sammy 67a750 manual and fire away.
If its been 24 hours or less since your install.. CANCEL WHILE YOU CAN!!!!!!!!!
