Need help: Lost remote to HDTV
 
I recently moved and can't seem to find my HDTV remote, particularly the remote to the Samsung HP-T4254. I was wondering what the best solution is for this type of problem.. should I buy the same one online, can I contact Samsung, or can I get a remote that will do the same thing? FYI, I need it in order to access the TV menu options. Thanks!

Go back to where you got the TV. Maybe the previous owner has left the remote for you like this one:

you can probably get a univeral remote that can do most, if not all, of the same things. I'd contact Samsung first and see how much it would be. I use a universal remote (Harmony 880) but I keep my television's remote around in the event I need to adjust something that I haven't figured out how to navigate to using my 880 (any picture setting, for example).

A good universal remote would probably work well. If you want the original, check with Samsung. If the price they quote is more than $65, check the following:

I bought a Harmony 880 a couple of weeks ago and love it. It replaced 4 different remotes and I have not found a single thing that it can't do...so far...knock on wood. It would probably be cheaper to get a replacement from Samsung but if you would like a universal I would check out the 880. I paid $99 for mine at Amazon.

Thanks for the help, I was looking at the universal remotes, I just want confirmation that I can get to my TV main menu with it. Anyone know?
