I bought a Samsung UN55F7100AFXZA TV last weekend and I cannot get the Smart Remote (Samsung AA59-00772A) to coordinate with the Denon AVR 3805.


Here's a photo of my components (stock pictures.)

I'm mainly interested in turning off/on the Denon AVR and adjusting the sound levels.


Thanks for any help

I own the F8000, so this may not apply...But, make sure ARC is enabled on your Denon and connect the HDMI out to HDMI3 on the TV, or whichever HDMI input is ARC capable on your set, it will be marked as such.

My Denon receiver does not have ARC or HDMI ports. I'm not looking for anything special, just want to turn it off/on and to adjust the volume.


Am I SOL if I do not have a receiver that has ARC or HDMI? What happened to the good ole days (2004) when a TV remote could control your receiver's basic functions?



I go to the control device setup menu on my TV. Sources/Setup Remote/Home Theater/Denon AVR 3805 (not in exact terminology) and the test mode to turn off my receiver never works.

Do the 7100s come with a Smart or IR remote?

It's the Smart Touch remote, but they included an IR device that I plugged into the back of my TV. It looks like this:

Called an IR Blaster.

Silly question; but, do you have the blaster in direct line of sight with the IR receiver on the Denon?

Uh oh, what if I say I do not have the IR receiver on the Denon. Will it not work? The IR Blaster for the Samsung is behind the stock TV stand and the Denon AVR is on an audio rack 5 feet to the left, on the top shelve (5 feet.)


I used to have a 2003 Mistusbishi WS55413 and the TV remote was able to control the Denon AVR. It was all done using the number codes which I think is old technology. The Samsung Smart Remote doesn't use codes?

OK, I assumed the Denon came with is own remote, sorry I'm not familiar with it...

If it does come with a remote, then it has an IR receiver. Try pointing the blaster at the dront of the Denon and try it.

Thanks! Will do.


I'll be home this afternoon and will reposition the IR Blaster.
