Report Remote control mode question - Samsung TV (HL-S4266W) in Remote Controls Posted April 19, 2012 Buttons like the four solid color buttons and buttons that pertain to TV functionality (like Antenna CH MGR, Fav. CH, etc) are non-responsive in any mode outside of TV mode by default. I assume because the manufacturer though when in DVD mode (etc) you wouldn't need your favourite channels. Perhaps the remote doesn't send anything when in a different mode. My question - if I try to customize the remote control to work with a different device as it is laid out in the manual (press the DVD button, then press the set button and enter in the 3 digit code), would more of these buttons magically become available since the remote would then be trying to replicate the functionality of a different remote control? Possibly. There is only one way to find out though... Does anyone have a good Manufacturer I could try that would open up a lot of extra buttons on the remote that I can then map into XBMC? Any device in the DVD, VCR, Cable, or STB categories would seem to work. Can you map a tv device to the dvd category? Try a tv that is different to the model of tv that you have (i.e. if you have a samsung tv, choose a panasonic for the dvd setting to control flirc). That seems like a good bet to get more buttons working. pleasant regards Chris!
