Program Remote to Operate Samsung HW-F450 soundbar

I currently have an HR20/100 receiver and want to program remote to operate my Samsung HW-F450 soundbar.  If I purchase an RC65RBX remote will that work?  Or is there another solution?

Won't work with the HR20.  That DVR is not capable of loading any codes to your remote.  As you're apparently aware, the "learning" remotes are the only ones that have a chance at getting a code for a soundbar.  The HR24, H25, HR34 and HR44 will communicate with that remote.

Thanks, I thought that might be the case.

You might check out this thread for the Samsung HW-FM45C Soundbar:

http://forums.directv.com/thread/11254661

the code it found that worked for the HW-FM45C was   32660 

I do not believe the RC65 Remote is an actual "Learning" Remote.

I believe that some Set-top Boxes simply send five-digit Codes to the Remote, so you do not have to manually enter the Code. 

The Code simply tells the Remote what set of 'signals' [that are already in the Remote's firmware] to send to the Device when a specific key/button is pressed.

Allan,  You post will confuse the original poster.  The remote they have is indeed a "learning" remote (the X in the model umber is the indicator) and I've already informed the poster that their HR20 will not function in the learning mode.
