Okay this is nuts. I just got a new soundbar to match our fairly new LG tv. The previous soundbar was a Samsung hooked up to it. Now I went to try and change the audio device from the Sammy to the new LG and program it. It did not work. So thought I would reset remote to factory defaults. All hell has broke loose and it seems like the remote is dead. Or corrupted some how. I get to the second part to reset the remote completely. When the channel up comes up to press. I get a 1 second red light flash. I called Directv and they tried to help me. Even they gave up and said they would just send me a new remote. Even as a last ditch effort. I decided to reset everything with in the box and reboot. Still no soap. I don't know how to completely clear this remote from scratch. Something is certainly fubar as it will power on my HR44 and LG tv still. Huh? Tried holding mute and select. Even putting in 987 I believe it was? Nothing. It wont go into RF mode it seems as well. Throws a RF setup fail. Every time I try to setup the remote now during the process. I will see 1 red flash when getting to the final step. I don't know what it means. Got to be a way of completely wiping this remote clean if its not working through the GUI?
