What's a tab2? Do you mean the Android tablet?
The 5800 can only respond to IR signals.

Yes it is the Samsung tab2 which is an android device without ir output. I appreciate the 5800 only accepts infrared, but the tv comes with an ir blaster accepting Bluetooth signals which it can convert. Anyone know if we might be able to use this?

If the IR blaster has a way to learn the codes, then anything's possible. What you need is more information on how to set up the app on the Tab to convert whatever commands you can give it to the right IR codes for the 5800 (which you'll be able to find by searching).

What's the app on the tablet called? Is it in the Play store? That's the bit you need more information about.
