      Dear friends,
      I am looking to buy a new TV for my mother who is quite old and cannot see very well.
      I know it may sound too picky but I am looking for a Samsung TV in which I can access the TV guide with the push of just one button.
      That's what I mean by TV guide:

      My mom's old Samsung has the "GUIDE" button on the remote to do that.
      The remote was like that: 

       
      I really like the UE43AU9072 but I think it only comes with the new smart remote which has very few buttons.
      As I said, I need to access the TV guide with the push of a single button just like on my old TV.
      Can the new smart TV remote do that? If not, is it possible to use my old IR remote?
       
      Maybe one of you guys with new TVs can help! 
      Thanks!

      This blog post reproduces a press release available at the Samsung Newsroom.
      Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today revealed the revamped Samsung Remote Test Lab program, which allows developers to easily test their applications virtually and remotely on thousands of Samsung Galaxy devices, now including the Galaxy S21 series with One UI 4 beta, and the latest Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Z Flip3 5G. The Remote Test Lab program makes it much more efficient for developers to test their new applications, as they don’t have to cover any hardware costs.
      With global access to the Remote Test Lab program, developers from around the world will be able to test their applications remotely on Galaxy test devices, regardless of the country they reside in. Over the last ten years, Samsung has built Remote Test Labs around the world, including in India, Poland, South Korea, and the United States. To make access to the program’s services faster and more reliable than ever before1, Samsung has now scaled up the program to include labs in Brazil, Russia, the United Kingdom, and Vietnam.

      "We wouldn’t have been able to offer such innovative mobile experiences to our users without our incredible developer community" said TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. "That’s why we are investing our expertise and innovative technology to support developers—they are crucial partners as we continue to expand our open Galaxy ecosystem."

      To create an enhanced test experience, Samsung released the new version of the program2. Developers will get access to an automated testing tool that will allow them to monitor CPU and memory consumption when running their apps and check if an application has any impact on system resources. And thanks to a new web client service, the program features an improved user interface and enhanced graphics. In the near future, developers will be able to use a new communication channel, giving them direct access to Samsung experts who can advise them on how to improve their app performance.

      Samsung Electronics’ award-winning lifestyle TV The Frame continuously transforms the space it’s in by offering users access to over 1,500 pieces of virtual art from some of the world’s most renowned artists, museums and industry tastemakers.
       
      This month, the Art Store is highlighting those masterpieces that bring the most beautiful scenery found around the planet straight to your living room with its World Environment Day spotlight, a curated set of art pieces that feature breathtaking scenes from all over the world. One artist whose work is featured in this spotlight is Cody Cobb, a photographer who travels to some of the most remote places known to man to capture nature the way he believes it should remain: untouched.

      Bringing the Beauty of Our Planet to More People
      Cobb has worked in photography for the past 20 years, first as an artistic pursuit that began as a part of his digital illustration projects and subsequently developing to be his primary medium. He travels to remote places including the vast American West in order to find unique landscapes, natural formations and stand-out moments to capture. He spends much of his time working alone in order to allow for serendipity to lead him to the discovery of the exceptional scenes captured in his work.

      “I am not sure that I can turn off the part of my brain that is engaged when I am photographing,” noted Cobb of the ways he harnesses his camera to capture his unique view of the world. “I observe the world in a specific way, obsessively finding details and patterns. Sometimes I will happen to have a camera with me, and that’s when I am able to capture those observations. Photography is a natural extension of my way of experiencing the world.”
       
      By bringing his works to the selection available to users on The Frame, Cobb hopes that people will be able to experience the world in the way that he is able to when he is taking photographs. “I would love for those who view my work to be transported somewhere else for a moment,” he noted. “I hope that they can experience the sense of stillness that I myself enjoy while shooting.”
       
      Cobb also hopes that when a user takes in the incredible scenes he has been lucky enough to see firsthand, they are able to stop for a moment and appreciate the beauty of what they are seeing. “I hope that my artwork offers a nuanced way of experiencing nature,” he said. “I want these places to come across as mysterious and I hope that people are able to get lost in them.”
       
       
      Experiencing the World Through The Frame
      On The Frame, Cobb’s photos are displayed using nano-sized Quantum Dots which offer 100% color volume and bring over a billion shades of precise colors to users so that users can enjoy the artworks with the original color, detailing and texture intended by the artist. Users are able to experience the natural beauty of our planet just as it is, for what feels like a firsthand view of these amazing scenes.
       
      ▲ Parallel World (2017)
       
      “The Frame is such a perfect expression of the cinematic visuals running through my head when I’m creating art,” noted Cobb. “I want my photos to feel alive and the technology powering The Frame allows for that. I also love that my fine art prints can exist on the same wall alongside the work I have available on the Art Store.”
       
       
      Putting Nature First Thanks to Transformative Technologies
      Having collaborated with The Frame’s Art Store since its early days, Cobb understands how important it is to bring art into peoples’ homes and how technology plays a pivotal role in doing so. He is grateful for transformative experiences The Frame offers as a digital platform for displaying art; “Thanks to The Frame, I now have a new audience and a whole new way of sharing my work,” he noted. “It is incredibly motivating.”
       
      An ardent advocate for the environment and the protection of the spaces he captures, Cobb is now selling his work via NFTs (non-fungible tokens) on platforms such as Hic et Nunc as the form of digital currency they employ consumes much less energy than other platforms. For each NFT sale he makes, he is donating a portion of the proceeds to environmental preservation organizations.
       
      Fifteen of Cody’s pieces are available on The Frame’s Art Store now, and two of his photographs are being featured as part of this June’s Environmental Day spotlight.

      Every year, around 15 billion batteries are used worldwide – but only 2% of these end up being recycled. In order to find a way to help mitigate this growing environmental issue, Samsung Electronics has developed the innovative solar cell-powered remote control for its TV products.
       
      As part of Samsung’s efforts towards creating eco-conscious products and services across all areas of its business operations, the Samsung TV’s solar cell-powered remote control is powered by lighting instead of conventional disposable batteries and can be recharged using sunlight, indoor lighting or USB.
       
      Take a look at the video below to learn more about the sustainable – yet high-performing – Samsung’s SolarCell Remote.
