The 8500 I see has no DVR so I'm guessing you want the Samsung remote to control another device. This is where a Logitech Harmony Hub seems to win at consolidating controls. Samsung may hit most controls but as you see, this one missed. Always call and ask if it's in the Samsung's remote capability.
Hi, I have a new Samsung 8500 series and all my external devises (Dish box, Yamaha receiver) have been connected. I can use the remote to control the Dish box, bring up the menu, etc. However, one thing I cannot figure out: When watching TV, how can I fast-forward and rewind? The sideways arrow buttons wither bring up the TV menu or another menu associated with the Dish box. I can play and pause, but there are no dedicated buttons for fast-forwarding and rewinding. Thanks in advance,
