Gone are the days when we had a million and one remotes scattered around the home, or hidden in inaccessible corners. Now we have universal remotes that have the ability to control everything, no matter what brand. But, and it’s a big but, most manufacturers make remotes for their own branded products and these tend to work better than the universal models.
Universal remotes can be just too wide reaching to accurately cover the specifics of your particular model, which is why experts always recommend matching brand to brand. For a Samsung TV, a Samsung remote will make the best combination.
