I never could get that Charter remote to control the soundbar volume. There are no codes for Samsung that worked and I gave up on the search method after over 30 minutes of mindlessly pushing the button hoping for a response. Part of the problem was also the fact that my TV is an RCA, my Blu-Ray is Sony, my DVR is Motorola and my soundbar is Samsung. Cripes, no brand loyalty here obviously! I figured getting down to one remote would be impossible, I would have been happy to get down to 2. Now I am happy to say that thanks to a great deal I decided to try a Harmony 650 remote and it works like a charm! Everything is now seamlessly controlled by one remote.
Just want to add for those that are having connection issues - which I also had, this is what finally worked:
1] Samsung soundbar to the TV via optical cable. I had to buy a toslink to coax adapter for this to work as the soundbar is toslink and the RCA TV was coax digital audio. Ifound the adapter for about $10.00 on Amazon
2] DVR and Blu-Ray players to TV via HDMI cables.
That was it. Then I just needed to program the remote to control everything. Pretty simple process once I finally got it figured out.
