    Peel is not working with my s7edge. I cleared cache, data did force stop. I uninstalled and reinstalled. Still no luck. worked great with my note 3 on same TV's and cable boxes. Anyone else having issues? Any alternative app suggestions if I can't get it to work?

    Doesn't peel use IR? These phones no longer have an IR blaster.

    OH, that is probably my issue since quite a few phones have come out since my note 3. Are there any other remote app to suggest or will none of them work without IR blaster.

    S7 Edge does not have an ir blaster so none of them will work.

    I think Logitech has a way for you to use your phone with the Logitech Harmony hub and control allot of ir devices. You may want to look at that.

    Harmony hub does work with a 100-200$ price tag, but why are we losing features in our new devices? "Refinement" sucks.

    Is your Samsung TV a smart TV? If so you may be able to download an app and control your TV if you are connected to the same wifi network

    Logitech harmony hub will do the trick, the app just accesses the hub via WiFi.

    Samsung said they did away with the IR blaster.
    Things are coming out for the future Smart TV's and the way things are done in the future.
    Don't have a clue who makes these decisions for them. But they need to be let go.
    People can't buy TV and go into the future as fast as the Phone people want them to go.

    And even if it controlled the TV ,say by bluetooth. What about the Satellite Box ?

    Try AnyMote in the app store. There is a free version that you can try and a paid version with more function.

    It may work via wifi with your Samsung TV.
