How does the Samsung One Remote work?

With the Samsung One Remote, you not only control the television, but also most of the devices that you connect to it. Think of your Blu-ray player, game console, and digital decoder. This means you can say goodbye to drawers full of remote controls. In this article, I'll explain how to install the One Remote and what all the buttons are for.

Connecting the remote

As soon as you turn on the TV for the first time, the remote control is usually connected right away. Didn't happen? Then point the One Remote at the TV's remote control sensor. Next, press the Select and Play/Pause buttons simultaneously for at least 3 seconds.

Button functions

In this overview, I'll explain how to use all the buttons. Note: the Samsung TVs come with different versions of the One Remote. These models differ in color and functions. For example, not every remote control has the Ambient Mode button, and the 4-color and number buttons are sometimes combined into 1 button. The icons and the function that go with it are always the same.
