Question about Televison & Video
The remote no longer communicates with the decoder. The remote works fine but when a button is pressed nothing happens on the decoder it just shows 2 blinking dots
It sounds like the remote needs to be re-programmed to work with the device. the 2 blinking dots illistrates that it is looking for a device to operate.

SOURCE: Samsung TV remote control
I HAVE THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM.
Confirmed with Samsung tech support. Problem is with remote. to fix, simple take the batteries out of the remote. Press and hold the UP Volume button for 2 Mintues (no cheating, it has to be at least 2 minutes), this Reset's the Remote Control. Put the batteries back in. Bob's your uncle. all fixed.

You will have to open the unit up and repair whatever broke.
When this has happened in the past to less complex remotes, I have found that usually the oscillator chip has broken off of the circuit board, but whatever it is will have to be resoldered back into its original position.
If you have never worked on electronics before, you will have to take it to a repair shop, send it to the manufacturer, have a knowledgeable friend repair it or buy a new one.

There is most likely nothing wrong with your remote. I just had exactly the same issue with my SE-R0161 remote. (I had just changed my remote batteries too and was getting a DR-2 code on the Toshiba DVR RD-XS52 unit's display.) My DVR and my remote had to be realigned so that they both have the same infared (IR) code. The remote and the DVR can have DR 1, DR 2 or DR 3 as remote codes. Pg 54 of the Toshiba Installation Manual explains how to align both your SE-R0161 and your based unit so that the remote works again. Good luck. Hope this helps.

I can give you several tips to try and see if we can get it going. First make sure you have the correct devise selected with the remote. For example if you are using it for the tv, make sure you have pushed the tv button on the remote first, and so on for all the other functions for your reciever. If this is not the problem try changing the batteries and make sure they are in correctly. Weak batteries will allow the red light to light up on the remote but it doesn't have the power to send the signal to the reciever. the other option is that the remote is simply wearing out, or has some type of dirt insde it not allowing the buttons to make contact with the metal strips inside the remote. You can sometimes find a store like Radio Shack that will be able to check and see if the remote is acdtually sending a signal, try calling around and see if someone has one of these detectors. If none of these help, try getting one of the universal remotes from a department store, they work with just about any brand of electronics and are much cheaper that a new remote. Here are a few links to sites that carry almost all brands of remotes in case you need a new one.
I hope this helped.
