How do I program my Comcast cable remote control?
As a subscriber to Comcast digital cable I gained a goofy little cable box and a big, complicated remote control. I can handle the remote, but would really like to have it control my Sony TV in addition to the cable box. How the heck do I program it?
Y'know, everyone laughed at Steve Wozniak (co-founder of Apple Computer) when he announced that the need for an easily programmed universal remote was one of the next big challenges in the computer industry, with his startup CORE and the CL-9 universal remote, but twenty years later we're still all struggling with these pesky critters. I know that I have six remote controls for my A/V setup, which is really too darn many.
Soon enough I'll have a review of the slick Logitech Harmony USB-based programmable universal remote, but in the meantime the remotes are still stealthily taking over my house! Trust me, I know what you're going through, I share your pain.
The real problem with the Comcast remote is that there is no other brand, it's not like a Sony remote that's relabeled or anything. Fortunately, Google helps again, and it turns out Comcast has a page online about programming the Comcast remote control.
Comcast 3-in-1 remote control
To program the remote to work with your Sony TV, you need to take the following steps:
- Find the code or codes for your TV from Comcast's list [PDF]
- Turn your TV on
- On the remote, press and release the TV key on the very top of the remote.
- Press and hold the Setup key, until the "TV" key flashes twice, then release the "Setup" key.
- Using the number pad, enter in the first 4-digit code found next to your television brand on the chart. If you do this correctly the "TV" key will flash twice. Now it's programmed!
- Now point the remote at your TV and press the Power key. If the TV turns off, you're golden. If not, try again with the next code on the list.
That's all there is to it. With a Sony TV, the codes are: 0000
Note: I had lots of problems with this because it seemed the remote was expecting a five digit value. I finally got it to work with my Sony TV by using the prefix "1" on the code so 10000 finally had things happy.
Try those, hopefully one will work with your particular Sony TV.

Hey, thanks for this. We've got one of these remotes, too. It came with a paper listing a lot of codes, but none of them worked on our RCA tv. Thanks to the links in this article, I was able to find a working code. One less remote for us!
Hi, thanks for putting that tidbit about adding a 1 plus the four numbers. My RCA needed to have a one in the beginning as well.
I cannot get the PIP to work on the comcast remote. I have all the cables and splitter but it just doesnt seem to work! only on video imput however I must use my tv remote and only get up to 99 channels. Can anyone help!!!!
I read two different guides on comcast.com in pdf and neither mentioned the need to prefix a '1' onto the code, but sure enough my remote expect 5 digits not 4 also. Also the two different pdf guides had different codes for phillips/magnavox TVs.
Dave, you'd never believe this but you saved my ass or behind, for the faint of heart. (if I can use that word.) I used your instructions and it took a little while but all of a sudden mandatory Comcast Digital worked. Saved me from having to wait 3 or 4 days for a Tech person to get around to working on my TV, from Comcast. Life Saver. ;)
Thanx a mil. $
Thanks for the help! the 10000 for the Sony Flatscreens worked to perfection
Thank you so much for this page!!
I had the same problem: my remote expected a 5 digit code, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out what to do.
I went to the Comcast site, but it was of no help.
Your note was extremely helpful. Thanks again.
Worked a treat, now I can use my one controller for DVD, TV and cable.
HI, WHEN I PUT THE TV ON COMPONENT 1 OR CABLE THE PICTURE IS ON, WHEN I CLICK THE AV1 THE PICTURE DOEN'T COME ON UNLESS I PUT ON THE VCR ON THE PICTURE COMES ON BUT WHEN I DON'T PUT ON THE VCR, IT SAYS NO SIGNAL.
BUT WHEN I RECORD A PICTURE WITH THE VCR ON AND WHEN IS FINISHED TAPING, AND I WANT TO PLAYBACK IT DOES'NT PLAY RIGHT IT SAYS NO SIGNAL AND THE PICTURE JUMPS. CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? THANKS
Thanks so much.I just got 2 sony bravias and only 1 of my comcast remotes would program with the 0000 code.It would work on both tvs but the other remote needed a 5 digit code.I was ready to rip my hair out until I found this page.Thanks again
Awesome! You ended hours of frustration for me.
When I'm watching a program that I recorded, the page up button used to advance the program 1 min and the page down used to rewind 30 seconds. Now if fast forwards 5 min for both, Can I change it back?
THANK GOD YOU LISTED THIS. I SEARCHED FOR 5 hrs tring to find an answer for my sony trinitron and comcast remote until I tried the 5 digit 10000 (instead of 0000).
THANK YOU! You rock! The 10000 worked on my Sony.
What about the Toshiba flat screens? can't seem to make the codes work
THANK YOU! 10000 worked perfectly for my Sony TV. I was ready to throw the remote out the window!
I have been trying to program for a minute. The code for my phillips tv was 0054... nothing. I used 1 in front and Voila, success. These remotes need a 5 digit code so for all codes that are 4 digit just put a 1 in front and it will work ..... Thanks so much ...... the guy hooked up my cable and internet and didnt even leave a remote user guide ..... wow..... lol ..
I needed the 1 for my magnavox also. Thanks
hey dave...thanks a lot...with your advice i was able to reprogram my comcast remote....now it works again! something else that bugs me is the wide-screen DVD....i have an older TV set and full screen works a lot better.....can someone figure out how to convert the wide-screen to full screen.....who cares about some of that background...anyway thanks again...steve in baltimore
When I turn on comcast cable with the remote, the tv screen says "front" in the upper left corner. I must have pushed a wrong button. I cannot access any channels. It is just a white screen with those words. I am housesitting, and they are not happy that they can't get cable to work. Can you help?! Thank you.
On my girlfriends panasonic tv vcr combo, I actually had to use a 5 digit code with 2 as my prefix, if that helps anybody. Thought that was worth a mention. Ha.
Great info! Thanks for posting this! It worked perfectly the first time I tried!
what is the code for a DYNEX T V
WOW! I worked on programming this thing for 45 minutes before finding your article. NOTHING mentions adding the 1 to the prefix but once i did this it worked! THANK YOU
i had a samsung and it needed a one thanks guys.
I have a Samsung DVD/VHS Combo. I don't see any codes for a DVD/VHS Combo. How can I program this device to the Comcast universal remote??
We have two TVs, each with its own remote, and long ago, with the help of a savy comcast tech, we programed both remotes to change the Favorite button to a "jump" button; that is the opposite of the replay button. When it was depressed, watching a recorded show, it would jump us a few seconds ahead through the commercials.
One remote died and we were given a new one, exactly the same kind. Now no one is able to explain how to reprogram the Favorite button to a forward jump?
Can you help?
yeah, i reassigned my aux key to a second tv, but now i want to change it back to work a dvd player. i couldn't find anything in the paperwork about changing it back any help here would be great. Thanks
Thank you. The comcast code only gave a 4 dig. You rock. Adding the one worked!!!!
Your tip on the Sony code was spot on, thanks!
Dude, much thanks for the tip on prepending the code with a "1". Fought with the remote for a half hour trying to get it to accept codes, and as soon as I used your tip (for a sony) it went right through. You da man!!!
yea bra.. prefix a 1 for sylvania. good lookin out
i was trying to program the remote for my reciever. I had to use a "3" prefix.
I'm not positive but it appears you need to prepend a "1" when programming a TV and a "2" when programming an AUX device. This worked for my Magnavox TV and RCA dvd player.
Adding the one did it for my old Philips TV. Thanks, Dave!
i need the comcast code for a samsung dvd/vcr combo it seems as if none are working!
THANKS for this post, I was going crazy trying to program my Phillips TV. After I found this post, I was planning on writing Comcast to change their instructions to program their remotes and found out different remotes have different instructions as shown on this site; https://www.comcast.com/corporate/customers/customer_support/remotes.html
But I finally got my TV program thanks to this site.
Thanks, 1 prefix worked. Stupid Comcast, you'd think they'd post something. Spent forever trying to do it manually.
How do I change the page back to 1 min and not 5?
You need to add that pesky "1" prefix for Samsung too. Worked both on my old tube Samsung and my new LCD. Friggin' Comcast, I fought with their instructions for a while...
One less remote to misplace in the couch cushions now...
Thanks alot...worked for me too
Hey I tried that thing you said with putting a "1" in front of the code for my comcat remote with avizio hd tv. Thanks nice sight.
It worked for me. Great. I was lucky that I had a sony tv and the example given was of the sony tv. thanx.
Just want to thank you I've been trying to add my Sony TV to the comcast remote and by adding the 1 in front of the 0000 it worked, thanks again.
I, like so many other people who wanted to throw the remote. Thanks for giving the 1 tip for a sony.
I have a comcast remote but not the box. I can get the remote to turn on and off the tv and adjust the volume but I can not change the channels with it. Can you help?
Thank you!! Why is it that I have to go blog surfing to figure out how to program my stupid remote? The Comcast site never told me to add a "1" at the beginning of my code, but thanks to your blog post, my remote now works. Sheesh.
thanks a lot!!!! the note was the best ever it helped me a lot!!! I was a while trying to figure this out and thanks to the 1 before the code now i can use the remote on my sharp tv :D thanks again
So far it only turn the tv on and off, how can I use it to change channels also?
Thanks for this. Adding the '1' at the beginning of the code worked for me too.
I really love it when, 'Did you read the instructions?', isn't the solution to the problem.
I tried for half the freakin day trying to set my remote to an older Sylvania. Once I read this and tried putting the "1" at the beginning, bingo, it worked perfectly. Thanks for the info. I did not find this anywhere else online even Comcast operators didn't tell me this!
I have a panasonic Blu Ray. I used the the Panasonic codes and no go. Then I tried 0490 with a '2' before it. YES!
20490 worked for my Panasonic Blu-Ray/DVD!!
Thanks, for the info.
Thanks this worked with ease. I had to enter in the "1" before the 4 digit tv code with my Samsung as well.
Holy cow! Tom Cole posted above somewhere
"I'm not positive but it appears you need to prepend a "1" when programming a TV and a "2" when programming an AUX device. This worked for my Magnavox TV and RCA dvd player."
He was absolutely right!!! i have been fighting this thing for 1 hour and 33 minutes, adding the 2 for an Aux device (dvd player - magnavox) worked!!!!
The Comcast remote gives three codes for Sony TVs: 10000, 11100, & 11317. While these work on the Trinitron for channel and sound, none of the enable me to setup the TV. We need the code so we can access the menu.
Great....now Comcast has a revised instruction sheet, with 5-digit codes! I have tried all of them for my Sylvania LCD and none of them work. Please help, I have other things to do with my life.
If plugging in the codes is getting to be a pain, use the code search. Example: You've tried all the codes for your TV, but you still cannot get the remote control to operate your TV.
Turn on your TV.
On the remote control, press TV once.
Then press and hold SETUP until the TV key blinks twice, then release the SETUP key.
Using the number pad, enter 9-9-1. The TV key will blink twice.
Aim the remote control at the TV and slowly alternate between pressing Power and TV. Stop when the TV turns off after pressing the POWER key. This means that a working code has been found.
Press the SETUP key once to lock in the code. The TV key will blink twice.
Note: Use the AUX key to program the remote for an audio receiver or DVD player
This worked awsome with all of my devices!! Hope this helps!!
Thanks Dave! Adding a "1" to the 4 digit code did the trick. How Comcast has not fixed this problem is beyond me. Take Care! -Brett
It worked...Sort of!
Can anybody help me with this problem?
I got the remote to work with the TV, it can turn it on/off and adjust the volume, BUT, I can't use the MENU button to access the TV Menu.
The Comcast Remote I had used to work with the TV Menu, but the remote died and we got a new one which I can't get to call up the Menu.
Any help would be MUCH appreciated :)!
OMG! Thanks for the notice at the bottom of your directions. I too was getting very frustrated by the fact that it seemed like the remote needed a 5 digit code. I was using 00001, 00002... never thought of using the 1 first. Anyway...THANKS! :D
Worked for me ... thanks for your site.
You'd think comcast would get it right on thier site, they are the worst.
I shall know soon if Uverse is better.
I have a Sony KDL-42V4100, Comcast DVR Box that uses a 4 number code. The 0000 works with one exception, the volume only work going down I can't turn it up. The other code wont work 0111 at all, any Ideas?
OMG, thanks that worked perfectly. I had been pulling my hair out trying to program this remote to my TV.
DVR REMOTE TO CHANGE TO CHANNEL 3 I HAVE TO PUSH IN 003 ECT OR WILL NOT CHANGE TO CHANNEL 3 PLEASE TELL ME HOW REMEDY....
Can you tell me how to insert my business card into my email signature? And be able to add "tabs" to the card that will link people directly to various web sites?
I have a RT2360 RCA Surround sound and it will not turn off with my Comcast remote. I can turn it on and adjust the volume but not off. I have tried the 994 thing with the 51969 number and it still does not work. Can you help me out?
Thanks, Dave. I only got a few minutes into this... I like Google (to say the least.) My old Toshiba TV took 10154. The remote would not acknowledge a 4 digit code. This remote is the DVR version.
Thanks a million. The tip about adding a "1" to the beginning of the Sony code saved me a ton of trouble.
I am banging my head against the wall trying to program a sanyo vcr. I have tried every number and put a 0,1,2, and 3 in front of those and no joy. It is a model VWM-400. Has anyone ever had luck programming this?
By entering the code 10000 on the remote, my Sony Trinitron TV to works for volume and power. But, i cant change the channels or look at the guide. What else i need to do ?
i need a code for asylvannia dvd / 4 head hi-fi vhs
Thank you so much that 1 0000 worked perfect it was driving me crazy that it did not work on my sony Thank you again
Wow! I hate to admit how much time I spent trying to program this remote for my new Samsung T.V. My fingers are numb from pressing "t.v." & "Power" over and over again. Unbelievable that their instructions do not inclue pressing '1' prior to the code. Sure enough, when I pressed 1, the first code listed under Samsung worked! Thanks a bunch!
Thanks so much for this page, could not get the sony trinitron to work until added the 1!
This was great! The 1 made it work for my Sharp HD TV too.
I, too, was baffled when my Comcast remote seemed to expect 5-digit codes instead of the 4-digit codes printed in the manual. I had to use "3" as a prefix to get it to recognize the codes for my Sony A/V receiver. I needed "1" for my Samsung TV. Thanks for being more useful than Comcast's own support resources!
Hi, I have comcast cable with a box and everything worked find untill someone messed it up, now i can turn the tv on and off and change volume but not the channel, i have to go in the back room where the box is to do that and before i could change it from the main room, If anybody knows how to fix it plz tell me
That "1" making it a 5 digit number seems to make a difference for the newer remotes - not the TV/device. It is related to the remote only.
i had to submit a reply for this...thanks for the help...you advising to add a prefix of one worked...dont understand y comcast doesnt say this on the site
I work for Comcast (I'm the poor shmuck on the other end of the phone when you call 1-800-COMCAST); so here's a quick note:
The silver remote with the GREY OK/Select button uses the 4-digit code.
The silver remote with the RED OK/Select button uses 5-digit codes.
haha i also work for comcast
and that's what i was gonna say
but in case people are having trouble finding codes that work...the remote w/ the red ok/select button works with more equipment
for those of you trying to do fancy stuff
look at the first page of the pdf regarding your remote
there's ways to change the volume and channel lock n all those sorts of things
i also saw someone trying to use the PIP button
that is for the dvr boxes...dont think they work on your tv's
Thanks,your information was very helpful.
I have a sony tv and I tried all the codes from comcast. I accidently pressed zero five time and it made the light blink twice. But when I read the article about putting the 1 in front of the 4 zero's, it worked great. Thanks for rhe help. My code for my Sony is 10000 and not 0000 or 0111.
I used 1 before the samsung code, and it worked perfectly fine!
I have an old magnavox tv and none of the codes work.. I even tried the 991 search option and went throug it about a hundred times.. any ideas??
Help! I just successfully programmed my new 3 in 1 remote to include my TV and my DVD player--but now I can't get it to select just one screen. There are two screens permanently (seemingly) showing on my TV--one is the TV (and my Tivo programs) and the other is the video screen. No buttons (not even the PIP ones) will change anything. What can I do to have a full screen picture again? Thanks!
Thank you! I needed a one for my new Sharp too, thank goodness I found your site!
I have a comcast remote it works for my Samsung flat screen tv. But it won`t work for my Phillips DVD player!! I`m so frustrated i`ve tried every code from comcast and they don`t work! please help me!
Thanks in advance
I have a comcast remote it works for my Samsung flat screen tv. But it won`t work for my Phillips DVD player!! I`m so frustrated i`ve tried every code from comcast and they don`t work! please help me!
Thanks in advance
Noted 1 prefix worked for sony tv and using 3 as a prefix worked for my sony audio/receiver. Thanks
Thanks so much. I just hooked up a box in my room, and I could not get my remote to work. My Magnavox had different codes on the PDF than the website, and then I had to add a 1 in front of 0054. If it was not for this site I would never have figured this out. Great job!
I have an older Sony DE825 receiver, does anyone know the codes for that...I tried the 4# codes, no luck, then the 5 and it accepts those in the remote. Now I need to find the right code. Anyone know it?
Thanks for the info....my control was expecting a five digit code. Thanks for the tip of using the number one before the four digit code.
THANK YOU! I was having trouble getting the remote to work with my new Sony LCD and 10000 worked perfectly. Unfortunately, Comcast doesn't have this code on their list.
Can not find setup code for a Zenith VCR/DVD combo model# XBV443.Any suggestions? Using your remote already tried 0017,0463,0178,0016,0092,0039,0000,0209,0479,1479,0503 and 0591.
To update a Sony DVP-NS710H to work with comcast 3 in 1 remote you will want to use the code 20533..
I have Comcast DVR 3 devices
Every time I need to enter a channel number to watch , I have to enter three digits !! i.e., If I want to watch channel 2 , I'd have to enter 002, for channel 11 , I'd have to enter 011 and for channel 383 , I'd have to enter 383!! I have another same exact remote for another comcast box but I just enter the channel number I need and it does the job i.e., I enter 2 for channel 2, 11 for channel 11 and 383 for 383. I want to program the first remote so that it behaves like the second remote i.e., how do I program the first remote ( descibed above) to work in such a way that I just enter the channel # without entering three digit?
I very much appreciate any help you can give me
I am trying to program my element tv into comcast remote. TV has 3 digit codes about 10 of them.
I tried prefix of 1 and 0 but still would not work. Help!
Adding the digit "1" is the key. Thanks so much.
I can't figure out how to program my zenith inteq tv. I've tried all the codes, even put a 1 and 2 in front. Can anybody please help?
Thanks alot! I finally programmed my Comcast remote to work with my new Sansui tv I purchased almost 4 months ago. I was on the phone with Comcast over 1 hour when I purchased the tv with no luck programming it. I found the code for Sansui on the list... however I had to omit the 1 on the 5 digit code 10463 and just use 0463!
I came to your site and got my comcast 3 way remote to work with my zenith TV. But it only does volume and power...I cant change the channel. I dont have a box, just a direct cable line feed, is that a problem? Thanks
Our Comcast cable comes in through our VCR/DVD combo and then to our VERY old MGA TV. This set-up worked perfectly until we had to add the little digi box to get all of our channels. Now the cable comes in through the digi box, then to the VCR/DVD combo, then to the TV. No problem with the TV, which has all of our channels now, but the VCR/DVD no longer functions with onscreen display, etc. I'm getting either "-----" on the VCR/DVD screen, or something like "7 U -" which, after a few seconds, reverts to "-------". How can I remedy this problem and use the vcr/dvd with the new set-up?
HELP! I just bought an Emerson flat screen tv. I've tried all the codes and steps to set my Comcast remote controler but no luck. No off - on and no volume.
have a sanyo and cable guy came out gave new remote now the channel 4 is in the right hand upper corner and wont go out dont have tv remote anymore so how do i get rid of this, old cable remote this didnt happen but new one it did and cable guy programmed the remote. how can i fix this.
I have a Magnavox model MAG 24Mc4306 dvd/vcr/tv combo, and have had trouble finding the right code for Comcast 3 in 1 remote. The code that finally worked was the Magnavox DVD code 20821. I programmed that code for the TV, and everything works now.
im trying to program my comcast remote to my toshiba tv but i can only turn the volume up and down and turn it on and off...Why cant i switch channels??
sony trinitron turns on and off but no other controls work. this has been noted several times with no response (even from the comcast guys on the list :) ). does the red on/off controller work with the older sony's. also have an olevia lcd that does not respond at all to any of the three listed codes.
To get the remote to control the TV channels (and not just the cable channels), you need to turn off the Channel Control Lock. Instructions should be in the PDF for your remote. For my personal remote:
De-Activating Channel Control
1. On the remote control, press
Cable once. Then press and hold
Setup until the Cable key blinks
twice, then release Setup.
2. Enter 9 - 7 - 3. Press CH- once.
The Cable key will blink four
3. Now, the remote control will
provide TV or cable channel
control capabilities while in the
TV or Cable mode.
THANK GOD for the post about adding the 1! We needed to do that for Samsumg as well! VERY HELPFUL website. Thank you
I have an older sony 50 projection tv and none of the codes on the comcast manual worked. 10000 worked on mine just like the guys mentioned above
10000 worked on my sony
Your advice was perfect. I tried all the codes for my two Sony LCD sets & none worked. The ones suggested by Comcast actually turned the set off but would not turn it on again (can't figure that out). Your suggestion for "10000" works perfectly. Thank yo so very much.
omg. this worked. thanx so much
I have a JVC mastercommander (older) and mine will not respond to the 6 codes mentioned.
Any advice? I am SOOOO frustrated!
Thank you for your good advice on my Sony TV.. It worked with the first shot!!!!
Thanks a lot for all ur comments - I configured my comcast remote (red ok) in 5 mins to work with my sony hdtv (10000) and sony 5 dvd player (20533)
I have a comcast remote exactly as shown on your home site web page. I'd like to be able to remove channels which are not available. Is there a way to do so from this remote? I appreciate your guidance.
Sharon, you can definitely create a custom lineup with the "favorites" option, but you can't axe channels you don't get from the main cable line up (which is stupid, in my opinion). I NEVER use the full lineup listing, I just made a faves list of the 40-50 channels I actually watch and that's all I use. Make sense? Would it be useful for me to post an article about how to create a favorites list?
This was so helpful. The prefix 1 before the four digit code fixed worked well with my oldler comcast remote and my new LG TV. I guess the newer Comcast remotes use 4 digits and the older one use 5.
thanks!!! the 10000 code worked great for my sony tv!
Thank you for taking the time to assist me with my remote question on removing channels. Yes, I'd like to take you up on your offer on how to set up a "favorites" list.
Also, would you know if the remote allows reverse and fast-forwarding of time? I'd like to be able to go back/forward a couple hours of programming.
Thanks again. Sharon
THANK YOU! I tried and searched for hours, but couldn't get my Comcast DVR Remote to work with my JVC TV. I tried putting a "1" in front of the code as suggested here and it works!
Seems like Comcast would get a clue and stop printing their manual asking for a 4 digit code.
Thank you again for posting this. So glad Google helped me find you!
Please help me, my comcast dvr-remote dont work when my lcd tv is on, but it works when tv is off why is that? cannot chage channel or menu when tv is on, only when lcdtv is off its a 42'phillips even if Im 1 feet away nothing
Wow nice site for help......bye now.
I have a Samsung LN52A630 and I cant get my Comcast remote to control the volume or the PIP. It will turn the tv on or off but thats about it.
Thank you!!! I was getting ready to actually call Comcast, but the 1 prefix worked. Thanks again.
I have my TV and DVD programmed to the Comcast universal remote. However, since I only use the DVD sometimes, is there a way to use the "all on" button for just the TV and cable box? And when I want to use the DVD, turn that on separately with the same remote so it also controls play, etc.? Thanks!
Emerson 27" Flat Screen TV, Comcast universal remote code is 10171 ... magic.
No wonder this is the top page when you google for comcast remote codes. Thanks so much the 1 prefix trick is still working. 10000 tuned in well with my Sony KDL 40V2500.
Thanks for the bit about the 1. That wasn't even the comcast guide, but my remote definitely wanted 5 numbers. I was putting a 0 before mine, but to no avail. The one worked like a charm on my small Magnavox. Thanks.
Thanks for your note about the preceding "1" on the code -- I was having the same problem (expecting 5 digits) and the 10000 did the trick!
I have a 52" flat panel Sony Bravia and the code 10000 worked! YAY!!! I'm glad I just happened to come across this website because the codes on the list did not have five digits. :) THANKS FOR THE ADVICE, DAVE!
I have the custom 3 device dvr remote and a brand new RCA 40" lcd hdtv. i've tried every trick posted on this site. I've tried every code i've found for an RCA tv. I've tried doing the search for code trick. Nothing. Can anyone help? I'd really rather not have to deal with Comcast tech support. That'll take years. Thanks.
Thanks. I've been trying to program my remote for a Sony TV for a while now. Including the 1 before the 4 0's was the trick.
I have a magnovox dvd-vhs combo tv and I can not program it to work with my comcast remote. I have entered all the codes they tell you to and it still does not work
Thank you for helping me program my remote. I needed the "1" trick to make it work. This is from someone that can't spell "IT". The Comcast tech Maurice that fixed my cable today also made my day.
I spent a couple of hours trying to get my Comcast DVR 3-device universal remote control to operate my JVC TV. As I was messing with it I noticed that entering a five-digit code made the TV lamp blink twice. I tried prepending a 0, with no luck, then a 1. The 1 worked. Five minutes later I happened upon this page. Thank you for your efforts. I only wish Comcast would hand out a (correct) instruction sheet when they pass out the remotes.
As so many have said, thank you Dave, for the info on how to correctly program the Comcast remote. You Sir, are definitely number "1". ;^)
thanks alot buddy i was going bald trying to figure that remote out.
fyi, you are officially a hero... its so nice not to have to get up and change the volume manually... seriously...bravo, gracias, amazing
All the codes for magnavox seem to create response by my Magnavox MVR700VR VHS/DVD recorder but I can never get it to okay (OK) to provide necessary responses for the set up menu screens.
Is there an actual code for my recorder?
Also are there any codes that might work with the new Digital TV converters for off-air Antenna converter boxes.?
Thanks for the note about using the "1" before the four digit code. That did the trick.
I have a Sony Home Theatre in a box system DAV-HDX266. When I had the comcast dvr 3 remote using four digit codes, code 1903 worked and controlled my device. I recently turned in my dvr box and old remote for a new box and remote. The new remote uses 5 digit codes and there are no codes for Home Theatre in a box systems and none of the codes I tried work. I have added a 0,1,2,3 in front of 1903 and nothing works.
Any ideas? I am considering returning the new remote and requesting an older model with the gray "ok" button but prefer not to go to the trouble if there is a solution.
Put a 1 in front of 0171 per your instruction and the Comcast DVR remote worked for my Sylvania (Funai Mfg.) TV
In answer to Shan's question, yes you CAN set your Comcast box to use one or two digit channel numbers (for channel 2 enter "2", for channel 11, enter "11"), instead of "002", or "011". Don't bother searching for an answer on Comcast.com, you won't find one. They ship the set top boxes with this feature turned off by default. What the?
HOW TO. Go to main Menu and change the "Channel Entry Behavior" in the "Guide Setup" window to "Auto-Tune". Menu > Guide Setup > Channel Entry Behavior: Auto-Tune.
MENU USER MANUAL. For a user manual of the on screen menu controls see http://bit.ly/ComcastMenuGuide
Also see http://bit.ly/AutoTuneOn
SET-TOP USER MANUAL. For a set-top user manual see http://bit.ly/ComcastSettopManuals
It would have been helpful for Comcast to have provided me with printed versions (or at least website links on a card) during the installation. But no, instead they gave me reams of useless paper about other services and left me to do all the legwork for what I really needed.
By the way, the AUX codes require a 2, then the code. ex: VCR Code Panasonic 0035 must be used as 20035.
And likewise, ALL TV codes require a 1 in front.
I still could not get this to work with my Mitsubishi TV. I worked for over an hour to trying all of the codes and various methods including spending about 15 minutes trying to search for a code. I finally did another web search and found a code not listed. The code that worked for my TV was a five digit code...10150.
Hello All. I work at Comcast and came accross this page. Comcast.com has all of the TV codes. the thing to pay attention too is the OK/Select button in the middle of the remote. If its Gray, it only takes four digits. If its red like most, they are five digit codes. go on the website and you will see the 2 different remotes. Thank You and have a great day
Yup, 1000 code worked for our Sony TV. Couldn't get the remote to work until I found your website.
My remote now turns the tv on and off and the buttons that control the sound work as well. I still cannot change to channel and I have an RCA TV and my comcast remote has a grey okay/select button. Please help because this is something that has been causing me alot of frustration.
Hello All, i am unfortunately using a wicked old tv from the 80's/ early 90's a stereo/dbx i sat there trying to figure out the code!!! anyone have any advice for really old tvs that arent listed?!?!!? PLEASE HELP
NEVERMIND!!! i turned the tv around and surprise its a panasonic!!!!
Nice Site... I have a Sony Projection TV and I can't figure out how to get rid of the TV channel number that is always in the top right hand corner of my screen. Any ideas on how to get this little green 3 to go away? Thank you.
TV code for best buy Insignia 32" tv? trying to program my comcast universal remote.
Wow the thing about adding the one before the code saved me from going insane!!!! I am competent enought but without googling your answer I would NEVER have figured this one out! thanks
had to comment man, thank you so much haha- why isnt this in the damn comcast book?!?
Thanks for your added note. I, too, had noted that it seemed to be waiting for 5 digits and not 4, and had tried 00000 as well as 001111, 011110, etc. Nothing worked. I had not thought to try the 0000 code with a 1 in front. Now it works !!!
"Note: I had lots of problems with this because it seemed the remote was expecting a five digit value. I finally got it to work with my Sony TV by using the prefix "1" on the code so 10000 finally had things happy."
Thank you very much for this thread.
The "1" in front of the TV code and the "2" in front of the AUX code worked like a charm.
Thank you so much Dave. I usually don't have problem with tech stuff cuz I'm kind of a techie myself but the darned remote was giving me so much trouble. All I needed was the 1. THANKS!
tv programed up nice (thanks for that), but now only volume and power works.
No channels will change.
Didn't see anything about this in the posts.
10000 is the lucky number! Thank you!
Tried all codes for my Sylvania tvk131 and none of them work. I made sure I was following directions and it seems that I am. What should I do now?
Oh, I forgot a few things. The TV button would blink twice after I put in the code, but when I pressed the power button the TV would not turn off as you stated.
My Sony WEGA needed a code of 11100 on the Comcast universal remote with the 'red' ok/select button.
That was so helpful. I have a Sony TV and have been trying to program the comcast remote for it for 3 weeks now and couldnt figure it out. I read your post about hitting the 1 and then the code and it worked perfect first try.
Thank you so much for your help. I would have never figured it out with out you.
thanks for the info the especially the five digit tip. My wife will be even happier now.
You've gotta be kidding. All I needed to do was at the "1" to the Phillips TV code, and I got the Comcast Universal Remote to work. What would be so hard for Comcast to revise their PDF with all the codes to indicate this? Maybe...10 seconds of work?
Thank you very much! I never would have figured this out otherwise.
I have a sylvania and I was just about to give up and think this site was fake because I couldn't find ANYTHING to help me with this stupid remote as I was about to give up I thought "Heck" I'll give it another try well I seen where you put the number 1 infront for sony well it also works for sylvania's to! I did it and now mine works after a month of pain in the rear Remotes I can finally have my comcast back without talking to a perfessional :) THANK YOU!!!
My large screen tv went out, so hook up a 20 inch RCA tv , now i am not seeing the channel lineup on screen when i hit info key on comcast remote, any ideas how to get it working.
Thanks Dave. The "magic" 1 worked for my parents' newSamsung too. Merry Christmas!
I seem to have the opposite problem of everyone else. I'm trying to program my new blu-link remote to control my comcast HD box. It works great with everything else (PS3,TV, logitech sound system), but I can't get it to work with the cable box. The blu-link manual lists Comcast codes as 3000 and 3005, but neither seems to work. Any ideas? Thanks.
tom: THANKS!!!! the 1 worked great!
i have a question how do or can i program my comcast remote to my emerson dvd/vcr combo how can i do that if i can thanks
Philips TV = 10054. Wow It worked!! I should have done this years ago.
Anyone know of a code for the Comcast remote to program the Sony Blue Ray Disc Player, model BDP-S360?
Adding the 1 to 0017 for our Zenith did it. Comcast should update their guides!!
The 5 digit code (by adding the "1" preceeding the given code worded for me. I wonder why Comcast did not mention this. For my Philips TV instead of "0054", I plugged in "10054" Voila she works.
In order to get my Kenwood VR-306 working on the AUX I had to prefix the 1313 code with a "3". So it was 31313
I want to disable the power button on the comcast remote so no one can power off the cable box or any other device. We run a daycare and sometimes the kids get the control and turn off the cable box and then it takes hours to get all the guide items back
A Magnavox LCD TV is not working even with the 1 prefix. :(( Please help. I'm using Comcast custom DVR 3 device remote control.
i needed to add a 1 in front of the code to program the remote for the tv and a 2 in front of the code to program the remote for my vcr (through the "aux" key on the remote)
I have a Comcast universal remote that I can't program to my Philips 3600D Receiver, someone please please help!
Hi, I have the older gray button comcast remote. It works with my Samsung tv but I cannot get it to work with my sony active speaker system. The remote accepts the 4 digit codes fine and I tried the code search with no luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Hi, I recently replaced my old Comcast hd box with a new Comcast hd box (the small one)and new remote. The old box and remote worked fine but I wanted a box with an hdmi connection. Anyway, after making all the connections and programming the remote to my Sony SXRD Projection TV, the Comcast remote will turn the TV off but it will not turn it on. I tried all three codes in the Comcast list for Sony TV's (11100, 10000, and 11317). The 11137 appears to be the code, but it won't turn the TV on...it just turn it off. Any suggestions? Thanks
Please i need a Panasonic tv remote control code to convert my television from I to BG.
We recently purchased a Samsung plasma tv. We can not get our comcast cable remote to work properly. After using the up and down channel changer, it will stop working from seconds up to minutes. It will not turn off/on or volume control. We have tried all the numbers listed and also used the search and never got a double blink to indicate it had found the proper code. Thank you for any help you can give. Samsung support and Comcast have been useless.
My sanyo TV works when I added 1 to the code. So the code really is a five digits 10154.
I have a LCD RCA tv 40 inch and cant get the comcast universal remote to turn the tv on or off, spoke to comcast they could'nt help, its the one with the red ok/select button, tried all the 5 digit codes and nothing... any ideas?
I was ready to give it up attempting to program my Sylvania BluRay player with the AUX button of my Comcast remote. I finally tried adding the "2" prefix and BINGO. Thanks for the tip!
what is the comcast remote code (red button) to control a sansui tv with dvd built in. The code given in the comcast manual doesn't work, nor does the generic code.
I need a old comcast remote programmed to a RCA T.V.
I have a sony home theatre in a box model # dav-hdx285 and none of the 5 digit codes work for my comcast remote . I have the newer dark grey remote with the red ok/select button .Can anybody please help ?
can i program my comcast cable dvr to fast forward 30 seconds like my old dvr replay tv?
I just replaced my old comcast DVR with the new one (black one) that has more mem compacity. The problem is that I can't turn up the volume on the cable box,I only can turn up the volume by selecting TV volume.The tv shows that the cable box volume is being increased, but I'm not able to hear anything from the cable box. Any suggestions?
Hi any solution for a sylvania lc320slx television? I have tried all of comcast's codes and none of them work to program my television. Can anybody help me please?? Thanks
Oh yeah I forgot to mention that I have the comcast remote that has the red ok button. thanks
Thank you very much. That first tip of adding the prefix 1 did the trick for my Samsung TV.
To get the remote to control the TV channels (and not just the cable channels), you need to turn off the Channel Control Lock.
De-Activating Channel Control Lock:
1. On the remote control, press Cable once. Then press and hold Setup until the Cable key blinks
twice, then release Setup.
2. Enter 9 - 7 - 3. Press CH- once. The Cable key will blink four times.
3. Now, the remote control will provide TV or cable channel control capabilities while in the
TV or Cable mode.
KATRINA!!! Thanks so much for the information on getting the remote to change channels. I was able to power on/off my Sony and adjust the volume, but could NOT change the channel. Your post was as invaluable as adding the "1" prior to the 4-digit code. :) Awesome!
Thank you dave for your help. I have a sony t.v. and couldn't get my comcast remote to program until I asked you. Thanks again.
I HAVE A SYLVANIA LCD HDTV 32" AND JUST RECEIVED A COMCAST HD BOX AND NONE OF THE CODES WHICH CONTAIN A 1 IN FRONT OF THEM DO NOT WORK. DO I NEED TO ADD ANOTHER 1 IN FRONT TO PROGRAM TV? I APPRECIATE YOU FOR ASSISTING ME.
Thanks for the info. I too had to add a 1 in front of the code that was listed for my tv for it to work!
I have an older Magnavox tv and had a really hard time programming the remote to the tv. Apparently, the 4 digit codes are the ones to use on the older models because I took the "1" off the first code and punched it in and it worked!
putting a 1 in front of the JVC code works as well and it worked. Thanks a lot
MY TV HAS A CLOSED CAPTION DEFECT BUT I WAS ABLE TO SHUT IT OFF WITH MY LAST REMOTE WHEN IT APPEARED. THE NEW REMOTE DOES NOT HAVE THIS OPTION AND THE CAPTION ON THE SCREEN IS DRIVING ME CRAZY. IS THERE SOMETHING I CAN DO BESIDES BUY A NEW TV?
Sweet you are the man!!!!!
Hi - I've tried at least 10 different codes to program my "red button" Comcast remote to operate my Emerson LC320EMXF tv with no results. Have seen lots of blogs asking same question but no answer. Can you help?
10154, 10236, 10463, 10180, 10282, 10178,
10179, 10038, 10177, 10280 these are the codes for brand Dynex, which is similar or the same as Emerson for Comcast universal remote control
2.Turn your TV on
3.On the remote, press and release the TV key on the very top of the remote.
4.Press and hold the Setup key, until the "TV" key flashes twice, then release the "Setup" key.
5.Using the number pad, enter in the first 4-digit code found next to your television brand on the chart. If you do this correctly the "TV" key will flash twice. Now it's programmed!
6.Now point the remote at your TV and press the Power key. If the TV turns off, you're golden. If not, try again with the next code on the list.
Note: This solution was provided thanks to Dave, because he gave me the final tip on adding prefix (1) on the codes for Emerson (Same as Dynex). So the codes that I provided are listed on 4 digits for comcast remote manual pdf. I just added te prefix (1). Thanks Dave
Say Dave is there any way to change the jump forward time to 30 sec.?
i have a 42in emerson plasma tv that i purchased in december of 2009.. i have tried everything from the 990 to the 991, adding the one, everything.. do u have any idea why i cant get it to program??

Have a Sony kdf-46e2000, used code 10000 (the one in front is key!) and it works great - thank you!
You know what is funny. I just got my cable box yesterday. I was following the instructions with the 5 digit codes, and it would not work. It will long blink at the 4th digit. So after reading your post, I tried omitting the initial 1 and guess what. It worked! It only needed the last 4 digits.
I'm trying to find the 5 digit code for a Teac Receiver? Has anyone come across one?
My remote ALWAYS blinks 5 times, so I can't do the 2 blink deal. Anybody else have this problem? It's an Armstrong system. I'm also looking on the armstrong site: www.urcsupport.com
Adding the 1 worked for my Vizio TV just fine. Having trouble connecting my RCA RTD3131 DVD/Theater on the aux. Can anyone help?
OMG thank you soo much! I have a samsung & tried them all and it didn't work and I just tried putting a 1 on the first code and it worked!
Dr. Denver...THANKS for the Emerson code. NOTHING else worked!!!! This site is great!!
Im tryin to set up my remote to turn off the tv . i typed in the code , it blinked twise but didnt turn off the tv , what do i need to do .
I have a panasonic sa-pt960 and a comcast remote with the red button. I traded in the gray button which worked my system completely. Now the red button will only control the volme and not let me toggle between the sources i.e fm am dvd aux. Is there anyway to allow the red button remote to have the same control functions?
Has anyone ever answered Norm's question from Jan 2, 2010? Anyone know of a code for the Comcast remote to program the Sony Blue Ray Disc Player, model BDP-S370?
dynex code for comcast is 10463
when I put a movie in to watch on my DVD player
I can not get sound or a picture. I press the tv botton on my remote but still no picture.
Hi, I have an odd remote control question. When I press cable + power, the cable turns off. When I press tv + power, the tv turns off. However, when I press "all on" (to turn everything off), the cable turns off, a black screen comes on that displays:
any ideas how to make everything turn off?? thanks in advance.
thank you sooooo much! IT WORKED! life saver!
i have a toshiba tv and im trying to program my comcast DVR remote to the t.v. but none of the codes work. I have this remote programmed to another t.v. but i switched tv's so can i program this remote to this new t.v.or do i need a new one?
Thank you soooooo much!!! The 10000 code worked first try for my SONY Trinitron. What makes this even sweeter is the fact that we broke the remote that came with our tv a month ago. We've been getting up for weeks to change the volume, etc. My girlfriend and her daughter are going to be so pleased!!!
EXCELLENT!!! You think they would tell you that some tvs need a 5 digit code!
thanks so much, the 5 digit 10000 for my sony was the ticket! awesome. thanks for posting.
Have a sceptre 40in code 10000 worked for me!!!!
Yay! I couldn't wrap my brain around why I couldn't program my TV and my DVD to the Comast remote. Well, adding the prefix "1" to the 4 digit code worked! Thanks!
Will the same method work if your tv cannot be powered on before set up? THe power button on the tv was pushed in and now is missing.
I also have a comcast remote with red OK/select, and found the 5 digit codes on Comcast's site, which worked great for my Vizio TV but the DVD codes dont work for the Vizio blu-ray DVD. Is it because it's blu-ray? Any suggestions? Someone said use LG codes but those didnt work either.
Adding the extra 1 before the code totally worked. Thanks!
I do I clear the (red lighted) light on my receiver. marked messages.
I have a Quasar TV and am trying to program my comcast remote but none of the codes work. Any suggestions?
I had to use a 3 prefix for my Onkyo Audio receiver. Hope that helps someone!
When I press the Page button during playback, the program jumps five minutes. Anyway to change this to two minutes?
Need some help. My new Dynex TV works great but went to play a DVD and have sound but no picture. It says "no signal" on a black screen. When I called Best Buy they said I either had to do something with the remote or change a cord in the back (but would not provide direction or detail however they said someone from the Geek Squad could come fix it for a minimum charge of $99). Since I think it's a quick fix I'd rather not spend that for 5 secs of work. Can you help please.
I'm facing the exact challenge below. Did anyone ever answer the following question:
"...I'm trying to program my new blu-link remote to control my comcast HD box. It works great with everything else (PS3,TV, ...), but I can't get it to work with the cable box. The blu-link manual lists Comcast codes as 3000 and 3005, but neither seems to work. Any ideas? Thanks.

I cannot get my viewsonic tv to program with the remote with the codes that are provided. I tried the 9-9-1 setup too and nothing, please help. Thank you!
Programed my (red ok button) Comcast remote to a Panasonic TV and Blue Ray DVD.
Every thing works fine except the play button for the DVD.
"I read two different guides on comcast.com in pdf and neither mentioned the need to prefix a '1' onto the code, but sure enough my remote expect 5 digits not 4"
I STILL hadn't realized I needed to do that! Worked like a champ on my old Zenith TV and Comcast red-button remote. Without the 1 at the beginning it did not work when following the manual. THANKS FOR THE COMMENT!!!
Your code is different depending if your comcast remote has a RED ok button or a GRAY one...GEEZ!! I spent hours using the old code list. Yes, as mentioned above, 5 DIGIT codes. Comcast should have this posted!
I have the black small remote; tv is samsung. my code is 1991 and i still can't get it to work. any suggestions would be wonderful!!!
just what i was looking for a simple guide thank you!
Would like ti fine ouy the Four digest code to set cable remonte to my TV 32 FLAT PANEL LCD HD TV
I can get the channel tuner to function on the new Comcast remotes for my Sony and Sharp TVs. Now, how do I get the volumn to function with the remote? What idiot wrote the instructions?
So, I have a panasonic flat screen with a cable box, i have tried the codes and i have also tried taking it out of channel lock. I can turn the cable box on and off however i cannot change channels. Anyone have any other suggestions?
so far the info has been great and very much appreciated. But I am having a problem turning the CHANNEL CONTROL LOCK off. I tried the steps as you mentioed on the site in several places. My remote does just as you said it would after I hit the CH - button and blinks 4 times, but after that it still will not allow me to change the channel. The Power and volume features work fine. Im stumped and would very much appreciate some help.
Code for vizio blu ray player and comcast remote. Thanks
Thanks for everyone's advice - particularly Katrina's from 7/15/09 since my issue wasn't about getting the remote to respond but about changing channels. Thanks soooo much for the instructions on de-activating the channel control lock! I'm so glad I kept reading through all the posts! Anyone else who is able to program the remote to turn the TV on/off and control volume but not to change channels - if you've gotten this far and haven't found your answer, scroll back up to July 15, 2009 and see Katrina's post. Her instructions worked perfectly for me!
Thanks for your help! The instructions that came with this remote were totally wrong. I was lost until I found this site!
can someone please help me I have a 60 inch mitsubishi flat screen tv, and a comcast custom dvr 3 device remote control with a red ok button, my codes are these (3) three, 0093, 0150, 0178, I am having trouble trying to program my comcast remote control it's the long dark grey one with the pip ch on it in black 5 buttons.
OMG THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!
I spent over 30 minutes following Comcast's DUMB GUIDE! :( I tried every code they listed and I tried everything they basically have on the guide, but nothing worked. So then I googled for some help and found this. This saved me some time and frustration from having to call Comcast and listening to the reps repeat the guide back to me when I've tried everything. Glad I have a Sony TV so the code "1000" worked for me.
I have a "red OK button" comcast remote that somehow has stopped communicating with my cable box, a Motorola DCT 700. It communicates fine with my Toshiba TV and other comcast remotes will work the box. Any ideas?
Thank You!!!! smh = all i had to do was add a 1 to the philisc code in the stupid comcast guide. Well thanks to google and this site i no longer have an attitude with the tv!!!!!!!!!!!!!
thanks sooo much finally go it to work by adding 1 to the beginning!!
I have an older Magnavox TV/VCR combo. I have tried all the codes including adding a 1, tried the search method (991) and still cannot find the correct code. HELP
I still need help! I have tried that with every code under Emerson and fugui for my Emerson 17" flat screen I've called comcast they were no help they had me do the auto program where you type in the code and search I spent almost two hours doing that and nothing! I don't know what to do I'm so frustrated with this situation. The model is LC195EMX serial number TH31A0947179255 please please please help me!!!
first link about programming the remote, the one that has you identify which remote you use worded perfectly for me. it took me right to a pdf that had the correct codes. thank you
I just got a new remote and I've tried all the codes for my Samsung DVD/VHS combo and nothing is working. It worked with the old comcast remote.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
This worked great, 10000 on my Sony projection tv.
Thank very much for Sony Code.
i can't get any of the codes to work for my Sansui LCD TV/DVD. any ideas?
I have a magnavox non hdtv and just was issued a RNG110 comcast box. Off the direction sheet, I hand turn on my tv and then point my remote at the box, I click TV, get one blink on that key, then hold in setup, waiting for two blinks. Instead, I get 1 blink, a pause, then two blinks. I have tried putting in codes (5 digits) to no avail (tv doesn't cut off). So if I don't get the right blinks to start, what's the use? Is the box defective? Remote power both yes & not pushed.
hey i was wondering how toprogram my Logitech Harmony 510 remote to my box for my tv. it is not the DVR so i dnt know if it would work... just wondering
I have an RCA L42FDHD3RYX28 Flat Screen TV i have tried every code Comcast offers for their remote but none of them work. I even Tried the Master Code 991, it also does not work. how do i get the comcast remote to work on my TV?
My power button doesnt work. So how do i program the comcast remote to my samsung hdtv tv?
Thanks SO much...one would think that comcast would update their programming manual?
Thank you very very much. Pops just got a new TV and this has frustrated me for DAYS!!!
Is there a code so that the red button comcast remote will control my samsung blu-ray player?
For those asking about the Blu-Link and Comcast, it will not work. The hardware inside the Blu-Link is not capable of producing (or learning) the signals used by modern Comcast set-top boxes. There are only two solutions: Get a new remote or hope the manufacturer will produce a new remote and offer a trade-in. Neither solution is very nice since there are no other remotes at a comparable price and the manufacturer is still refusing to admit that there is a problem.
Thank you so much. I was getting so frustrated trying to simply follow the instructions that came with the remote. The '1' pre-fix did the trick!
Can u hook up a white-westinghouse wx-101
I had trouble getting my Proscan LCD TV to work on the code listed in the link.. I was able to find a code that did work doing a quick web search. 10178.. there are a few others that were also listed as proscan codes 10029, 10030, and 10019. I hope this helps!
Trying to find Comcast code for an Apex LD 4688T. Called Comcast and Apex and tried 10 different codes but none worked!
I know this article is pretty old but it worked for my Toshiba television. I Wasn't understanding why with the four digit code it wasn't blinking ( it did after added the 1) now I don't have to get up or use a separate control for the volume and power.
OMG, thank you sooooo much. The adding the prefix of "1" was all I needed. After hours of trying all the codes and nothing working I googled this and found your information. You are totally awesome.
I needed a 1 as well for my samsung! Thanks so much!
I called Comcast about programming the remote so I can control my TV menu and they walked me right through it!! I was only on the phone about 8-10 minutes for the total call.... Thank you customer service :) Press TV button then hold setup until 2 flashes then enter code of 973 and a Channel down 1x there should then be 4 flashes that was the trick. Good luck out there
Thank you Dave for the advise on using a 1. I tried everything in Comcast's guide, no luck. Then I read your comment about adding the 1 and the 4th code worked after 2 hours of trying it Comcast's way. A great big THANK YOU.
My 55" Vizio was bought for Xmas in 2009. Two or three times a year I try to program my comcast remote and give up in frustration. CC help is useless for the vizio. I just learned the cc remote with the gray "Ok/Select" button uses 4 code digits, and the red "ok/select button uses 5. I have the gray on, and on the fifth digit the TV changes channels. CC codes are all five digits, so I have been told to omit one digit. So, any one know whether to drop the first or last digit? Yes, I could just try them, but I now have about 40 codes from cc and vizio. What a mess
Thank you very much!
Used this process to program in my Vizio 47" LCD, was the first 5 digit code found on Vizio's main site! Easy as pie :)
i was able to connect the control from comcast to my sony bravia and it still will only turn up the volume from the comcast box instead of the tv
Please help i programmed cable remote to work for volume of my tv and now volume is so low i cannot hear most of the channels on full volume when it wasnt programmed i could turn voulume up on both the cable remote and cable remotes and adjust between channels to our prefernece.
I do have a lot to say, and questions of my own for that matter, but first I'd like to say thank you, Dave, for all your helpful information by
buying you a cup of coffee!||
