Vizio TV Remote Code for Samsung BDP 1590/1600 Blue Ray Player

The manual does not list a code for the Samsung BDP 1590/1600s remote so that it can control a Vizio TV. I found that the LG TV code worked for me:

Press and Hold the TV power button on the Samsung Remote. Press 1,9 (code 19). Release the power button. Your TV should shut off (or turn on based on whether it was on or off before you started this process). This means that you found the right code for your TV.

Only downside: the TV source button did not work for me. Yet, this is better than lugging around 2 remotes to watch a movie.

Next: Looking for the remote code to control the BlueRay player using my Comcast DVR remote. (any ideas any one?)

Way to go, Raj. Worked like a charm. Why Samsung would not include a major TV brand's remote code is a gross oversight -- or maybe a not so subtle statement about a competitor!

Thanks! I was trying every code to see if any worked then thought do a search and came up with your post.

Just a note, this also worked for the Samsung BD-P3600 Blue-Ray Player

LG codes worked like a charm. Samsung BD-D5700 Blu-Ray Vizio tv.

This also worked for my BD-D5700 blue ray player with the power, mute, channel and volume buttons but unfortunately the "source" button did not change the input on the TV.

I'm sure you already tried this, but just in case, try pointing the Samsung remote at the remote sensor on the Vizio. I was having a few issues myself until I realized I was pointing it at the BD player.
