Anybody know of an IR code to make a Samsung "Q" LED tv with Ambient mode go into Ambient mode?

There's a button on the TV's remote control that does it, but that stupid little remote is bluetooth/RF (or whatever they use) only.

From my searching, it seems like this doesn't exist but I figured if there's a way someone here would know about it.

Thanks in advance.

Why do you need to give the Ambient command while the TV is in Standby mode?

I just need an ambient mode command in some ir form. The remote that comes with the tv has a button for ambient mode. That remote is rf only.

Maybe this would work to capture the IR?

I've never tried it, and I don't know if it would work with a newer model.

Seems easy enough to try. Will advise if it works...

He's looking for the Samsung "Ambient Mode" command. If the described method works to capture IR, you still have to get the command. Does the Samsung remote have a discrete "Ambient Mode" button? Probably not.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

He said, "There's a button on the TV's remote control that does it, but that stupid little remote is bluetooth/RF (or whatever they use) only", which I interpreted as a button with the discrete code. Otherwise why would he want to have the IR command on the remote?

Regardless, you could be right.
