Has there any update to the RC71 remote for the input key so it can be used to switch inputs on a Samsung TV?

This is part of the existing RC71:

 

ENTER

Press for Mini Guide while viewing your

program and dismiss with EXIT.

 

ENTER also replaces TV INPUT button:

To cycle through the equipment

connected to your TV, press and hold for

three seconds until LED light at top turns

green. Then scroll through inputs by pressing ENTER again.

I can't get the input selection to display. I have a Samsung ES6500 setup as an RVU client. Pressing enter only displays the mini guide.

Do a mute / select and enter 960 to set the TV input key.

You have to press and hold 3 secs or longer.  Works fine with the RC71 in RF mode. 

I have this working on two TV's with a Genie and a client.

Don't recall having to do the 960 thing with this remote but its worth a try if all else fails.

 

And then again, I don't have a RVU TV, so maybe the TV interface is the fault.

Works as it should with my HR44 server, but not on my RVU client. I've read where this is a bug since the beginning. Was hoping for a fix. The 960 programming didn't work.

From what I have read is it doesn't work at all with RVU clients (Samsung or Sony).


Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
