1. I have the Hopper connected to a 1 year old Samsung smart TV. I have programed the TV into the Model 52 remote correctly. Using the remote to turn on the Hopper, then the TV, it will not activate the TV source on HDMI 4.
Alternately, turning on the TV, then the Hopper has the same source issue. Samsung says HDMI 1 is the preferred source for Sat. TV, but it doesn't work any better. Sometimes turning the TV off and back will activate the source, but most times have to use the TV remote to select a different source, then select HDMI 4. My old direct TV receiver was on HDMI 1 and the remote had no problem with activating the correct source. I am using the Dish provided high speed HDMI cable.
2. I have a Bose CineMate 15 sound bar, which I've correctly programed in to the 52 remote. When turning on the Hopper, it will not turn on the Bose sound bar, I have to use the old Bose remote. The 52 remote will adjust the volume & mute the sound bar, but it will also not turn off the sound bar.
Note: My older Samsung smart TV connected to a Joey in another room, works perfectly with the 52 remote.
Any suggestions, it is very frustrating juggling 3 remotes?
