Looking for discrete code to turn on/off tv speakers

I recently purchased a Samsung Plasma PN50C550G1F and I'm programming my harmony remote. There are times I want to use the TV speakers and other times use my surround sound. When I use my surround sound I want to turn off the TV speakers. Normally I would just use the mute command however the TV constantly displays the mute icon. So I'm looking for a workaround. I found in the tv menu a way to switch internal/external speakers which would work. However, right now I programmed the remote to navigate through the menu which is slow, clunky, and error prone. I would like to find out if there is a discrete code to toggle this or if there is another code I can use to turn off the TV speakers without constantly displaying the icon.

Anyone else have this problem?

I figured somebody out there ran into the same problem as I have.

newsamsungc550owner,

You might try these Hex values:

TV 0x0c 0x07 0x00 0x00
Ext 0x0c 0x07 0x00 0x01


I don't know if they'll work, but you're free to try them. Professional installers have been reluctant to distribute the information, they will not work on all remotes, and I don't have the authority to post many of them.

Does the Harmony allow you to assign your own macros? You might try that if it's an option as well.
