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
