I have some elderly friends who have spectrum tv and internet. And they have what I guess is a Spectrum DVR STB.
They bought a new Samsung TV that has a Samsung OneRemote.
SO My questions revolve around how to get their Spectrum remote to control their samsung TV.
Here's a link to the TV:
I found this:
And I also found this:
Once I inspect their Spectrum Remote and Spectrum DVR STB I'm pretty sure that I will be able to identify both and find online manuals.
Anybody have any pointers or suggestions.... I have literally never tried to program a remote. I guess I'm lazy, I've always had 2 or 3 remotes laying around....
I might add I'm guessing I can simply plug an hdmi cable into the TV HDMI Port 1 and a hdmi port on the STB?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, HDMI out on the DVR to an HDMI input on the tv would connect the DVR to the tv. Then just make sure the tv is set to the correct input where the HDMI cable is connected.
As for the remote...the Spectrum remote will control most of the basic functions of the tv (power, volume, input selection) with the likely exception of the menu. For that the original tv remote will probably be needed.
Thanks Reds....I figured that was the best I could hope for.....These are elderly people who don't really know much about Smart Tv's and streaming apps, so if I can get their current remote to do the spectrum Tv stuff then that will probably suffice. The Tv they are replacing is 15 years old so hopefully the spectrum dvr stb is a newer vintage that has hdmi io. I can remember back in the day you split the coax cable and it plugged directly into the TV itself, but this was obviously before hdmi.
All the current boxes have HDMI, although I'm sure they keep some of the really old boxes on hand for special situations when customers request them due to having an old tv.
