Included in the PNE8000 is an IR blaster that you can use in combination with your Samsung TV remote to control extras such as your satellite box or your Blu-ray DVD player. The idea behind this device is that you should be able to use voice control along with gestures and the touch pad remote to control them all, instead of using the remotes that came with them.
Does The Blaster Work Well with Your Samsung TV Remote?
This may the only thing that does not hit all five stars with the PNE8000; setting up the blaster is challenging and getting your Samsung TV remote to work with everything else. However, you will find that once you do get it all set up, this little device lets you control everything without the need to buy a universal remote and fuss with programming it.
