Creepy and (must be) annoying problem! Here's hoping you find the answer quickly.

The Samsung in our 2010 (built in Aug 2009) started doing that last summer (4 years old). Having been an electronics hobbyist since I was young, I said 4 years is a long life for a modern TV being beat up regularly on rough roads. So rather than spending a lot of time and/or money trying to fix it, I replaced it with a new LG TV. It has a bigger screen and better picture quality.

However if your trailer is still under warrantee, I imagine airstream will replace it for you. The quality of TV's put in RVs (including Airstream) probably aren't worth having repaired. (my opinion).

When I ordered my 2012 trailer I included the optional Samsung for the BR. The "standard" TV over the dinette is also a Samsung. I finally yanked the BR TV out of the trailer in frustration for the conflicting remote signals. Turn on the TV in the dinette, the BR TV would go on. While in the BR operating the remote, the dinette TV would turn on. Went to COSTCO and bought a same size Vizio, yanked out the Samsung from the BR...and no more issues. (All the Vizio wiring and mount sizes are a direct fit, BTW.) QUESTION? Why didn't anyone at JC figure this out for us? If they did, why didn't they share a solution?

Airstream is aware of the issue of everything being operated inadvertently by a single remote. That fell under the heading of "it seemed like a good idea at the time". In theory, you could use either remote, whichever one you grabbed first, to operate either tv. Of course, instead of a solution it is a problem.
Eventually, look for a different brand as a second tv, or at least one that can be selected as tv2.

i know this is a late one but has anyone considered the autosleep functions, and of course the conflicting other issue of multiple users at a rv site, maybe all with samsungs! i have 4 led samsungs ranging from 37" to 75" one remote does them all. i reckon samsung should use a frequency changer in its software and remotes for this exact issue!

Dealer worked it out with Airstream to replace the tv ... They sent a "reconditioned" (read used) tv that was an older model ... I rejected that and they sent a new one to replace it.

Dealer was able to replicate the problem both in the trailer and on bench testing. Airstream let him know that they could not replicate the problem with the returned TV ... So ... One of ya'll might end up with it in your new trailer. Good luck with that.

I do think that Samsung has one of the best viewing tv's on the market. Unfortunately, I have had 2 Samsung's fail. A 40" and 50". Both units ended being recalled. I only knew that with a Google search! I ended up getting onsite service for both. 20 minutes. The tech de-soldered one component and installed another. And he was gone. Both times. Must have cost Samsung a few $$. I just bought a 32" Samsung at a Shoprite supermarket for $199! Best of luck with your tv.
