Can I pair two Smart Remotes to one TV

I tried pairing two Samsung Smart Remotes to my new Samsung Q80 TV but within 10-20 seconds I get a message that the TV is already paired with a remote and then unpairs from my first remote; this despite both remotes working just fine during that brief period.  Why would Samsung not allow this?  Is my only option third party remotes? Is there some way to do this with the Samsung Smart Remotes?

Were you ever able to pair two remotes to one TV?  If so, how?  Thanks.

I have the same problem, I have purchased two remotes but can only pair one at a time. When I pair the second one both will work for 20-25 seconds and then it disconnects the second remote.  It appears to be a software issue.

 

I was able to pair two remotes  with my rogers setups allowing both myself and my wife to have a remote and had figured the new system would work the same.

 

This feature would be nice seeing as I have already purchased the second remote.

Same issue...both work for short period (<5 minutes) then first one stops working.  It's clear it CAN work, but doesn't stick.  I really don't want to have to pass 1 remote back and forth between me and my wife :smiling-face:  Please fix this Samsung!  Minor issue with big inconvenience to some.

Did anyone find a solution? I would not have purchased this Samsung "smart" tv if I had been aware of this serious deficiency. They need to remedy this!
