Weird thing is every so often the remote works just fine. And it is weird coincidence that this started morning after SW download fro many of us. But as Earl has stated the remotes and sw load should have nothing in common but ya really have to wonder why this started to be a problem for so many of us at the same timeEdmund said:First nothing changed with remote, thats for sure. This is only effecting Samsung dlp's, for some reason they're no longer responding to discrete commands mapped to the TV ON & OFF keys. The middle power key still works on them. This changed just happen to coincide with the recent dtv update. a pure coincidence.
