Control Devices with Your TV Remote

Using the Remote to Control Devices

It's great that you can connect so many different external devices to your TV: Game Consoles, Blu-ray players, speakers, you name it. But what's not so great is needing different remotes for each one. Luckily, you can control all your external devices with your Samsung TV remote.

Point the remote at the device you are controlling, and make sure there are no obstacles between the remote and the device.

Certain external devices connected to the TV may not support the Universal Remote feature.

Universal Remote

Make sure your devices are connected via HDMI and are turned on.

  1. Using the TV Remote, navigate to and select Source > Universal Remote.

  2. Select New Device and then select the type of device you want to control.

For certain devices, you will have to select whether the device is connected to the TV directly or to a home theater system, and then select the brand of the device. Select the HDMI port the device is connected to, and complete the setup by using the TV Remote to control the device.
