2 Samsung Remote Controls on same channel - separate them?

by Pal2 / October 13, 2009 6:48 PM PDT

I have 2 Samson devices:

Monitor: T240HD
TV: LE32B650

Each of them has a remote control, and both are in the same space.

However, the remotes are both on the same channel, so that when one is switched on/off, both devices are affected.

How can I change one of them?

If both units accept the same code, there is really no way to seperate them. The only workaround I can think of is to cover the sensors of the one you don't wish to change channels. Probably not too helpful, but I don't have a solution for this scenario, unfortunately.

Looks like the wizzes at Samsung haven't thought about multiple monitors/TV's in a space, needing separate remote control.

Strange, but the senosor is NOT purely visual/line of sight, as it continued to word through multiple layers of paper!

I tried covering the sensor (somewhere around the Samsung Logo, below the monitor, with a StickIt, many stickits, and ultimately had to use athick business card, nd tape it over the area.

Pity... am sure the glue will now come off onto the frame!

Sounds like an opportunity for a hardware rethink!

I am sure I am not alone.

Back in the early days of the VCR, some had switches in the back labeled "Remote 1 & 2". This was for exactly the purpose you describe.

I would talk to your locat TV repair man (sorry ladies) person and see if they have handled such a request before. An LG, Sony or other make may work on either of your TV's (Maybe that "Clap Your Hands" thingy they advertise at Chrismas time will work? Wink )

It seems, the more sophicated todays electronics become, the less user friendly they become. My recommendation? Next time, get another brand for the 2nd. set. That will show them.

Good hunting.
