I bought the LE32R83BD with the BN59-00516A remote... after a call with Samsung, I found out that also they don't have the codes in the manual... so the guys started to look for other models manual.
Long story short:
By browsing the models on www.samsung.com
i found the one that looked the most like R73 and voila! the codes were in the manual of LN-S4052D.
On page 19 and forward you find how to set up and also the codes for different vendors and vcrs /dvd.[Link: downloadcenter.samsung.com]
The remote, works fine now with my Panasonic DVD :)
so good luck to all you other!
