Controlling volume with remote

by reidey / April 26, 2010 8:22 AM PDT

We just had a Rogers technician here fixing our digital cable....he said there is a way to change the settings on our tv or remote so that when we turn up the volume it scrolls up smoothly to increase or decrease the volume so we don't have to keep pressing the volume to change the volume. Is there a way? We use the remote from the digital box. We have a Samsung LN40A450

Controlling volume with remote

There's not a way that I'm aware of. Often times, the cable/sat boxes have their own code banks for various televisions, but the option is ultimately up to the cable/sat company to program the codes for their remotes. The TV menu doesn't have any options that would change that.

Holding down remote volume button
by Magic Alex / April 30, 2010 4:57 AM PDT

I have a high-end Universal remote and there were not any learn codes that enable the press and hold functionality for volume up or down. The compromise I achieved was to program the up and down buttons using the Universal software to repeat 5 times with each push. So now, instead of having to hit the button 100 times to get from 0 to 100, i only need to push it 20 times. It works very well this way.
