Humax Freesat+ debut on 11th September
Monday 24 November 2014 3:33PM

I recently bought a Samsung UE22H5600 TV set from John Lewis, having been advised by them that it would be satisfactory with my existing Freesat set-top box. However, while programme reception is fine, I found it impossible to set up the Samsung Remote Control to recognise the set-top box, which is a Manhattan Plaza DS 100. In fact it seemed only to recognise SKY set-top receivers. I contacted Samsung who said the TV was "incompatible" with my DS100 and were unable to say if any Freesat receivers were compatible, although they understood some customers had found Humax receivers to be compatible.

Any help or comments would be appreciated.

MikeB: Many thanks for your comments and advice. I have tried many brand codes without success so have settled for using two remotes. As you say, this is not a big deal and I am delighted with the performance of the Samsung 22H5600.
My thanks also to jb38. It does seem that one has the best chance with devices by the same manufacturer.

MikeB: No joy there - the DS100 has only Scart.. It's very little inconvenience swapping occasionally between the two remotes even though it was not what I (perhaps naively) expected.
Many thanks again.
