Using Samsung Remote Control to Control Genie

I know that I can set my DirectV to control my Samsung TV (just bought not yet received) but I assume that any control of the Samsung other than on\off is not possible from DirectV remote.

Is there a way to use the Samsung Remote to control my Genie DVR?

Some newer Samsung TVs comes with a IR blaster to control the DirecTV receiver.  although due to the special buttons on the DirecTV control, is awkward using the Samsung remote.  YMMV

Thanks, I guess I will just wait until I get the TV but it sounds like I will stick with DirectV remote

sticking with the DirecTV is your best bet.  or perhaps you might want to get a fancier universal remote like the logitech harmony line
