I am trying to get my RedEye Mini to work with a Samsung digital cable box (Model SMT-C5320) on the Cablevision Optimum IO TV service (Woodbury NY). None of the Samsung code sets in your dataset will operate the cablebox, and I have been unable to successfully program the RedEye Mini in learning mode using the unit's remote control for any of the box functions. I know that I have properly positioned the remote and that I'm only pressing the remote's key(s) momentarily during this "training", but to no avail. Any suggestions?
Sorry for the trouble here. Have you tested with the code sets under the device types Cable Box as well as Digital Video Recorder? If you've tried Cable Box but none of them are working, please try with the device type Digital Video Recorder and let me know how that goes.
It is possible that your remote uses a strange frequency that cannot be learned by the mini, which is common with some cable box remotes (one example we know of: AT&T U-Verse Motorola boxes).
Its been nearly 1 year so hopefully you've resolved this issue but for everyone else: Using the ScientificAtlanta 8300HD codeset controls this cable box. I read somewhere that these boxes were were produced specifically for Cablevision who still wanted to use the same (old) remotes.
