PS3 Blu-ray Disc Remote Control: How to Make It Work With Your Samsung TV

PS3 Blu-ray Disc Remote Control

I can finally rejoice! I was happy with my new PS3 Blu-ray Disc Remote Control since I watch most of my media on my PS3. The only downside was I couldn’t get it to work with my Samsung TV (model LN52B610 52″ 1080P LCD HDTV), but after having read the manual I realized I can make it work… but I needed the programming code.

The manual lists the possible codes for Samsung TVs: 459, 460, 461, 462, 463, 464, 465, 466, 467, 468. I tried them all and gathered that both 464 and 465 worked. I was happy for a bit but realized that the remote didn’t work quite anything like the original Samsung remote: the directional buttons were used as volume/channel control, and some other buttons like Return didn’t do anything. I figured the features were just limited for universal remote controls.

After a few hours, I couldn’t stand the fact that I had limited control over my TV, so I started investigating. Considering both codes 464 and 465 work, there have got to be others, and maybe one of them will allow my remote control to give me full control.

I finally hit the jackpot when I ran into an Amazon review. The author suggested using code 304, and lo and behold, it worked!
