Re: New Remote Voice Pro dropped support for my TV

I don't think it's been mentioned, but I assume the TV doesn't support CEC or Anylink+ as Samsung calls it.  

FWIW, my 2012 vintage Samsung UN55ES6100 is still my main living room TV after 12 years of nearly constant use.  Samsung's Anynet+ is enabled on it.  But the Roku CEC test via Settings > Remotes & devices > Remotes > √ {Your current remote} > Set up remote for TV control > CEC setup  fails so I cannot control the TV power/volume/mute functions over CEC commands sent over the HDMI connection.  I was really hoping this would work so I wouldn't have to point the remote at the TV for these functions.

All of the Voice Remotes I've paired to the set HAVE, however, been able to find the right command set to control these functions via IR.  This includes two Voice Remote Pros, models RC701 and RC795.

This is with the Ultra 4800 I'm currently using on this set, and was the same with the Streaming Stick 4k+ 3821 I used there before.

Indeed it does support CEC and I tried it.  Still no good.
