Hoping someone could check their TV for the following. I'm looking for a new TV for a vision impaired family member.


Samsung NU/RU models(RU8000/RU7100) Other 7xxx/8xxx series models are fine too.



  1. Do they have a voice guidance option? ie audio feedback when changing channels/volume etc...
  2. The ability to re-order channel list? eg. Swap Bravo(4) & Prime(10) or change Choice to (1) & TVNZ 1 to (12)
  3. Does the 7xxx series come with the "One Remote"?
  4. For those with a "One Remote" are the voice commands for changing volume/channels reliable?
  5. Does the 8xxx series come with1 or 2 remotes?


I have also emailed Samsung NZ/Harvey Norman/Noel Leeming but hoping G.Z users could assist

Did you check the manual:





Yes, but what's listed in the manual doesn't mean the feature is available in the NZ model or whether the features works as described eg. my 2019 LG UM7660 has the ability to swap channels, but 2-30sec later the TV auto swaps them back. So am really hoping someone with a late model Samsung could check for me before I have to make a 3hr drive into town.
