Samsung Smart remote wont sync with Youview Box

Hi Guys

Just purchased a Samsung Nu8000 Smart tv & am having issues syncing the Samsung Smart Remote to work the Youview box?

Get to the part where it asks if smart remote can toggle the channel up/down but nothing??!!

Any ideas?

    Are you sure you shouldn’t be using the other remote for this? The manual is not very clear here:-

    Controlling External Devices with the TV Remote - Using the Universal Remote
    > Source > Universal Remote
    You can control external devices connected to the TV using the remote control. To control external devices, register them by following the instructions on the screen.
    • This function may not be supported depending on the model.
    • You can also use the Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC) function to operate external Samsung devices with your TV's remote control without any additional setup.
    • Certain external devices connected to the TV may not support the universal remote feature.
    • Do not place any obstacles in front of an external device. It may cause signals from the remote control to be transmitted improperly.
    The TV memorises both the external device and its connection port (HDMI 1, HDMI 2, etc.).

    So, what do the instructions on the screen say, and where does the process fail?

    But bear in mind point 3 above; perhaps the YouView box won’t play ball.
    Does HDMI stand for Hardly Dare Mention It?
