    Hey guys, so im hoping for my sake someone else has this TV (its great by the way)

    my only complaint, and iv been meaning to post this question for AGES - is there anyway to go straight to HDMI 1, instead of pressing the source button multiple times? this method means i have to go TV > EXT.1 > EXT.2 > COMPONENT > HDMI 1 as you can imagine rather annoying and time consuming (made all the more worse that i dont even use EXT 1 & 2 for anything!)

    so if anyone else knows of any other methods? sat down with the manual but came up empty!

    thanks in advance guys!

    I found this annoying too! but I recently brought a Samsung LE19R86 for the bedroom £260 (lovely little TV buy the way) from a high street shop near me (after a bit of haggling)

    Anyway, this TV's remote comes with a HDMI button. So I swapped it round with my 32" in the lounge hey presto no more scouting through all the sources just one quick press on the HDMI button.

    Obviously this creates issues if I ever want to run another source to the bedroom TV.

    I wonder if you can buy this remotes seperately? :rolleyes:

    thats all i want, a little button that will take me straight to it, iv got so many other buttons on this thing i dont use, nor do i know what many of them do! would think about picking up a new controller just for this! could you tell me the model number of the TV you picked up mate? maybe i could contact samsung and claim i misplaced mine, see if i can buy a new one direct.

    oh god yes, in fact im just about to sit down to some assasins creed! please dont take this thread as a bash against the TV, withen the price range this is one of the best you can buy, games/bluray look stunning.Its just this button thing (which isnt really a big thing) was getting on my nerves, and i was wondering if i was merely missing something simple. very good partnership!
