Just bought a Samsung Plasma HDTV PN50B550 and Onkyo Home Theatre HT-S6200, the Onkyo remote can control other electronics, however, there are about 20 codes listed under Samsung TV category, which one should I choose?
Is it possible that more than 1 code works, but only 1 is the best which means it can control all the features of the TV, while others only works for partial features? I don't have time to test one by one.
Can't say, but when it comes to samsung tv's and the universal & oem remotes, the only thing that should count is if the volume keys repeat when held down. Many remotes have the wrong protocol when it comes to samsung tv codes, result you have to keep pressing and releasing the volume for it to change. So if test the samsung codes in the onkyo and come across a code that allows you to just hold volume key down to change, thats a keeper.
And if the onkyo remote is made by UEI, and you see codes like 10702 or 10812, those are the ones to use.
