Remote control questions

by comments7407 / February 14, 2010 6:38 AM PST

I just got a new UN46B8000. I am having an extremely difficult time getting remotes to work with this TV. After talking to Samsung tech support I was informed that this TV is controlled by an RF remote and IR remotes will not work with it. Like everyone else now adays The TV is pretty much a display except to change the source input and volume. Everything else is run from the UVERSE DVR and Samsung HT system, which are IR. The Samsung remote will not work the UVERSE DVR / STB even after purchasing the ATT RFI adapter for it. I talk to Samsung and they say call ATT. I talk to ATT and they say all of their equipment works properly (and it does by themselves). I just want one remote (at reasonable cost and not the 399 harmony one either) Suggestion ? TIA GM
