I'm happy to shed some light on this issue. It IS samsumgs fault, but it CAN be fixed, at least in some cases. (I've posted this elsewhere as well as i came across two posts about this)

 

I have a Samsung 4K Q60R QLED TV and a Pioneer receiver (VSX-515V) that I use as a home theather. The receiver is plugged to my TV through an optical cable. Everything used to work perfectly until I updated to the latest firmware, AND reformatted my TV. After the re-format, the volume on the remote never worked again....same errors as mentioned by others. Samsung obviously messed something up with their update relating to the pioneer IR code datebase.

 

Now for the fix. The issue seems to be with the Pioneer IR code database so just find a receiver, that is NOT pioneer, that uses the same remote IR code as your receiver. I used this site "http://www.verizon.com/support/smallbusiness/tv/fiostv/remote+controls/setup/questionsone/122842.htm" and found that the brand "WARDS" uses the same IR code as mine (RCA, Optimus, Magnavox, Capetronic, ADC, and Yamaha all seem to have IR codes that may overlap with some of pioneer's too). I then followed the procedure on my TV again for linking my remote, but when asked for the brand just searched "WARDS". The first attempt failed but the second "WARDS" code it used was able to power off my receiver as expected. It now all works fine again!

 

Hope this helps...

I want to say thank you it worked perfectly.. I thought about this lastnight and did try it but I only went through the Receivers that are listed in the  didn'menu.. I didn't realize there were more stored codes that could be accessed via the search..  Once again you were a big help and I sure appreciate it..

I have the same problem on my pioneer Amplifier Az370.

My TV ru7400 detect the Pioneer during the setup selecting brand pioneer and it switch off the amplifier, but after that in normal using the remote doesn't work to the pioneer device.

Does anyone know how to figure it out?

 

Thanks
