I posted this in another (resurrected) thread, but I'm not getting any replies so I thought maybe its own thread would have better luck. Either that, or everyone's stumped?

{From jasonvp discrete code thread}:

Thanks much for these discrete codes: I'm considering purchasing a URC-R40 remote or Logitech Harmony One (any thoughts on which?) and I wanted to make sure I had all my bases covered with my TV before I purchased...

I have a Samsung UN55d7000, and I use the Smart Hub function (I see a discrete code for this) regularly, but does anyone know of a discrete code for Netflix within Smart Hub? That way, if I want to stream Netflix I can create a macro for this function since my audio input requires a switch from, say, regular TV which uses HDMI ARC.

Thanks in advance for any help!

...

I'm pretty new to this, so if I'm missing something, let me know. I did a search on this site, but I can't seem to find anything about a discrete Netflix code within Smart Hub for Samsung Smart tvs. Is there an easier way to do this without a discrete code, and are either of these remotes easier to program using discretes?

OK, so I'm getting the gist that no one knows of a Smart Hub Netflix discrete code. :) I have some other questions, though...

I'm still shopping for a remote. I keep flopping back and forth between the URC R40 and Harmony One, but I'm leaning toward the R40 due to customizability and flexibility. I don't need RF, so unless the spendier models fit my situation in other ways, I can rule them out.

I've been doing some research on using discrete codes: is either of the above remotes able to use these discrete hex codes on its own, or, as I've read, would I need to first purchase a cheap "jp1" remote (One For All?) to program a discrete code and have my chosen remote manually learn the code from the jp1 remote?

Other than that, since no one seems to know a discrete code for the Netflix question, I would assume a macro would just include a Smart Hub command, then 2 right cursors to select Netflix (among other component switches). Although since I've never owned a remote capable of macros (I've always had at least 4 remotes lying everywhere), I can only make assumptions, but is this basically how a macro would function? And would either of these remotes perform better than the other in this case?

I also would like to know how to go directly to Smart Hub "apps", in my case Amazon & Pandora. However, I suspect it's not possible for two reasons. One, you never know for sure which app will be in focus when Smart hub come up. And if you did you still could not build a robust macro because the line-up changes when a new app is installed.

Or, what am I missing?

Unpredictable as you stated.

You will have to try it and see what you get. A pro likely would not offer it to a client but a hobbyist could burn a buncha time to see if it would work. It is not remote dependent but completely dependent on how the TV responds.
There is no truth anymore. Only assertions. The internet world has no interest in truth, only vindication for preconceived assumptions.

I have a Samsung UN55F8000BFXZA LED TV, and it's smarthub remote has discrete buttons for NetFlix and Amazon that seem to work from anywhere in the menu tree. Below are the captured hex codes for those NetFlix and Amazon buttons. I have tried (without success) to find or create a similar button that will work for Pandora - so if anyone has any ideas or a Pandora discrete it would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Steve.

NetFlix: 0000 006D 0000 0022 00AC 00AC 0014 0041 0014 0041 0014 0041 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0041 0014 0041 0014 0041 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0041 0014 0041 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0041 0014 0041 0014 0041 0014 0041 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0041 0014 0041 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 0014 06FB

I am also having trouble with this. the discretes above from StevG do not work for my particular Samsung (6300 series).

without discrete enter and exit netflix...programming is not robust at all. example:
From HDMI1 to Netflix would be something like:
smarthub->right 2x --> enter.
From Netflix to HDMI1 would be something like:
smarthub (to exit netflix)->HDMI1
From Netflix to HDMI2 would be something like:
smarthub (to exit netflix)->HDMI2

Now the trouble...What if we are on HDMI1 and want to go to HDMI2? Since our HDMI1 macro has a smarthub click to exit Netflix, we would actually enter the smarthub menu since smarthub is a toggle on/off. Macro is now off track.


We need netflix discrete enter and exit :-( Has anyone found a solution?

Automating smart TV is very hard.  Many of the companies I have spoken to in my area simply do not try to do it.  They teach their clients to exit netflix before sending the next workflow for a new activity or source.

The problem with Smartv is that not all of the apps exit the same.  When I was trying to automate the 85in Samsung, getting out of crackle was a different series of buttons than getting out of Netflix.

Old time member here, may have reregistered a few years ago, but I was once active back in back in the 90s and learned quite a lot, so now I have a small issue that maybe someone here can help me with.

I recently cut the cord with DirecTV and moved on to youtube, etc. I have a 55 in Samsung curved tv and a Bose Solo sound system, connected via digital optical cable. I cannot get the tv remote to control the Bose system and currently have to control my volume with the Bose remote. In the tv sound settings I have selected the digital opticsetting but I cannot get the brand option to display.

Some searching results instruct me to select the "d.in on the source button" (I'm assuming on the Bose remote) but I don't have any type of display to follow any other instructions.

I'm trying to avoid programming the Bose remote to the tv because I'm not sure I can control the streaming with it.

Am I missing something here or is it just not an option?

Thanks in advance for any possible help.
