I have a Samsung 27" TV that I got from a friend who lost the remote. I have purchased and used numerous Universal remote controls and unless I hold the remote at a perfect angle, changing the channels and the volume is impossible. I'm trying to determine if it's a problem with the remote control sensor, or if I were to buy an exact replacement remote from Samsung if that would solve the problem.

Any ideas?

Just curious....why are you posting this TV/Remote question on a PC Forum? Personally I would have used the Equestrian Forum.

Sounds to me like the IR receiver is partially blind …
Perhaps the diode is misaligned behind the window or maybe the window is dirty ?
