Simple Set-up Makes It Easy to Get Connected
Best of all, you don’t need a degree in computer science to get started. Here are the basic steps you need to set up and control your home entertainment system with the Samsung TV Remote App:
- To begin, go to “Setup” on your Samsung TV’s Menu and look for “Wireless Remote Control”. (If you don’t see this menu option, then chances are your TV is not compatible with this remote function.)
