    One of my TV is a Samsun 46" LCD model....

    I programmed my HR20 and HR21's remotes to work with that TV.... everything
    work fine.... except the volume control... Both the original Samsung remote
    and my old HD Tivo's peanut remote will raise/lower the volume when I hold
    up/down the volume button.

    However, with the HR20 and HR21's remote, holding it down doesn't make
    the volume go up or down... it only raises by 1 number with each press....
    for example, I have to make 10 presses for the valume to go from 0 to 10....

    is there a word-around for this?

    Thanks! :)

    I have 2 Samsung lcd's, and neither one of them will let me hold down the volume key on the Directv remote. Don't know of any workaround. There is something strange about the Samsung's, since my other TV's will let me hold down the volume key.

    :)

    I've got an HR20 hooked up to a Sammy LCD. I haven't noticed the volume issue as you've described. I'll check it this evening when I get home and report what I find.

    Try the other suggested Samsung TV codes from the remote setup screens. The first one in the list will only do the one step volume change even if you hold it down, but one of the other codes will work properly and keep raising (or lowering) the volume for as long as the volume button is held down.

    For repeating volume commands, use code 10702.

    Phoenix,...
    Same thing with my Sammy DLP. I have a Harmony remote and holding the button works, although I use the stereo for audio and have the volume on the TV off.

    im am installer for directv. goto your remote settings menu and try the different codes. I have a hr21-700 and a samsung 40". i believe the second or third code will let you hold the volume to change it.

    Why don't you go to your remote, first punch any other brand's code, say sony 10000, then try code 10702. So from now on your won't have to be so vague when helping someone.

    If you are pretty sure that you know the exact code for the OPs TV, that's great (although you can't be absolutely sure since the OP didn't give his exact model number), but there was nothing vague about rhambling's answer, and in fact it was exactly the correct procedure for finding the right setup code. If one of the codes listed for the Samsung TV (or any make of TV for that matter) doesn't work how it should for all functions, try the other codes listed for the TV maker until you find the code that works the best.

    If 10702 doesn't work for someone, here's the full list of samsung codes that come in the RC64 remote's manual. I'm listing these because the on-screen menu only lists 12 of these 25 codes.

    10060, 10812, 10702, 10178, 10030, 11959, 11903, 11575, 11395, 11312, 11249, 11060, 10814, 10766, 10618, 10482, 10427, 10408, 10329, 10056, 10037, 10032, 10019, 10264, (also the on-screen menu lists 10217 which the RC64 manual doesn't list).

    If one doesn't work, keep plugging until one of them does.

    THANK YOU Bluemoose, for asking this. I simply assumed I had to live with this problem. I would never have thought that maybe another code would do the job. And...thank you to those of you providing the solution too! :hurah:

    I have a Samsung, Panasonic and a Sony neither of them have volume from the TV's. The only sound comes from the surround sound systems that they are hooked up to. The Samsung is hooked up to a HR21-700 and the Panasonic is hooked up to a HR20-700 and the Sony is a HR20-100 they have never worked through the boxes they have there own Denon 3806 and that is the only way I can get sound. It sucks because at night I have to switch inputs and watch Comcast through my RePlay TV now the volume works fine on any of the TV's when I use Replay TV and Comcast.

    As mentioned above, code 10702 does the trick, for 99% of all Samsungs. The code before it only does single step.
