I have a Samsung LN-3241D. I'm trying to use method 2 to have discrete access to my inputs. This works great except there's no discrete button for the "TV" input. A phone support agent suggested altering the activities that use the "TV" input to have them go to the last input on the television, and then add a sequence to go to the next input (being the "TV" input). It sounded like a great idea, but the last input on the TV is HDMI, which isn't accessible unless the device connected to it is powered on. The same is true for all of the inputs on the television, none are acitve unless the device connected to it is powered on. Is there a code or a way to get direct access to the "TV" input?

I don't use the 'tv' input...I watch all my TV via my HD DVR cable box...which is connected (via the receiver) by HDMI cable. and yes, some tv's will respond to previous channel, up/down channel and/or channel numbers as an indication to jump to that input...if that doesn't work, you'll have to use a workaround by going to the input before 'tv' and then adding a 'nextinput' command to scroll forward one to the 'tv' input

The previous channel and up/down buttons don't do the trick on my samsung. I have a friend with a newer samsung tv, and it works for him. Do you think it would be possible to have my harmony 'learn' the channel up code from his samsung remote? Just a thought. I'm not sure if it's his tv that's responding differently, or his remote that's sending a different code.

1. you could add your friends tv model number to your setup and try the channel up command yourself from the remotes device mode for his tv.
2. if you look at the front of your manual, your tv likely is from a line of similar tvs that vary only in size...so if you have the LN46A850, you could try the LN52A850 and see if that profile has a command that would work. check your manual to see if you have a listing of exact model numbers to try. if you find one that works, let logitech know so they can add it to your tv's profile
