Hello to All,

An AV person usually helps me but he's unavailable for 2 weeks. Have an existing 55" LG flat screen that picture went bad and bought a 55" samsung that I need to install. I've seen the AV person go through a gyration of configuration menus when he did the install, but I am willing to give this a shot.

I have a MX-450 universal remote that controls current flatscreen w a Denon receiver, sony dvd player and Comcast receiver. The flatscreen is wall mounted and connected via CAT 6 cable.

Pla let me know if you have any specific questions and I will try to answer them all or take pictures.

Thank you and pls advise,
tstex

Most common hookup:

The CAT 6 cable goes to Comcast cablebox IN (not 'tv').
HDMI cable out from Comcast box to Denon receiver, HDMI ARC IN if there is one. Otherwise any HDMI IN. An HDMI OUT from Denon to 'tv'.
Sony DVD HDMI OUT to a different HDMI IN on Denon receiver.
Then it's all following Denon's instructions in manual to program Denon settings and the remote.

Thanks D-pay. Every thing is already hooked up, I just need to exchange the LG out for the Samsung, then configure it. I guess I will find the Denon user guide and see what I need to do, correct?

Thanks again,
Tstex

You should only need to change the device on your universal remote from the LG to the Samsung. I found this guide through a search, don't know your level of comfort with reprogramming, but the worst thing that will happen is you can't use your universal remote for two weeks or so. And if you're like me, you'll have to find where you squirreled away all the original remotes...

Thanks Nick...I bought the Samsung Nu6900 55" flatscreen and have a Denon AVR-x1100w receiver [the AVR is hooked up to a comcast receiver]...the current LG is wall mounted and I will simply remove it and install the Samsung the exact same way...then I will need to get the Denon receiver & MX-450 remote to be able to work w the new samsung...it cannot be too complicated I would think.
