We are moving to a Hopper 3 and a Samsung Q7. The actual model number is QN55Q7FAMI. This TV's own remote communicates to the TV via Bluetooth.

I have loved having one remote, the Dish one, to operate my 622 receiver and the Samsung TV that just died. Sometimes I need to access the TV menu system, for example to turn captioning on and off. But --- does the Hopper remote output a Bluetooth signal in addition to the RF? Or does it have a secret way to communicate with the TV?

None of the Dish remotes output Bluetooth. HDMI CEC should allow you to turn the TV on but other functions will not work.

Closed captioning is provided by the Hopper receiver rather than the TV so closed captioning will still work.

Many (most??) TVs with BlueTooth remotes also accept IR signals. Hopper has a way to program the remote based on make and model without learning.

It's also possible the Dish remote setup you used with your old Samsung TV MAY work with the new TV.

Thank you. I will see what happens when they set up the Hopper. If that does not give me "one remote" capability, I will be back to you folks for advice. Perhaps the right Logitech remote would communicate with both.

All the Logitech Harmony remotes with the Hub will support bluetooth/IP/IR/RF for communicating with multiple devices.

I use the Smart Hub product for use with the Hopper 3 (IR and IP), Sony TV (IR) and my Roku boxes (Bluetooth).
