This instructable will clearly describe (unlike the Comcast manual) how to program your remote to operate a TV, DVD, Stereo, or other device.

Step 1: Getting Started

Before we begin, make sure your remote has a good set of batteries by using it to turn your cable box off and on. if this test is successful, move on.
I have a Sanyo DVD player along with an Xfinity/Comcast DVR. One tried the Sanyo codes that came in the programming pamphlet from Comcast and none of them worked. I tried the codes on this site and they didn't work either. As a matter of fact i tried codes from multiple website and not a single code worked. I've programmed the remote for different TV's, other DVD players and even VHS VCR's and have never had any of then not work with atleast one of the codes. I'm at a loss now and am stuck as to what to do now. Any suggestions?
<p>I have a Sony VHS to DVD recorder that your codes worked to do the normal functions. The menu does not work and I need that to finalize discs. The model is FDR-VXD655, can you help me? </p>
<p>This article is the only reason I was able to fix the issues I was having PLUS instead of merely having someone come in and &quot;help&quot; me by fixing it, I now <strong>understand</strong> the process. There are many people out there like me who benefit and sometimes rely on people like you for this kind of support. Extremely grateful for you taking the time to help. </p>
<p>THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU</p><p>There's a special circle of hell for comcast</p>
1st useful site for my issue. No problem programming silver comcast remote to dtv, tv &amp; vcr using your clear instructions for 991 search method. Thank you! I was getting so frustrated!
Wow! Super easy... Thank you!

<p>Thanks for making a nice information for Comcast password recovery. In such situations, one may also checkout 25dollarsupport.com which is quite reliable.</p>
Thank you!
<p>We were able to set a remote for one TV with soundbar so that the volume button automatically controlls the soundbar. We can leave the remote in cable mode while volume button controls soundbar.</p><p> I can't recal how we programmed that. With these instructions have to press AUX to controll sound.</p>

This process doesn't work with my comcast silver remote. The remote well switch my Sony str-dg720 on akready, and most remote buttons do not function, except Mute, Vol, and Ch up or down. The &quot;fixed code&quot; section will give me the same active buttons (bad outcome, esp. since TV/VCR button will switch to VCR and not switch back out. The semi-auto method, when followed exactly as written, causes the stereo presets to progress, rather than a search for a valid (not displayed) code. I've tried this process with the Sony on OR off, and in different source modes (tv, FM, other non-used inputs but no luck. I believe Sony receivers have several other &quot;fixed codes&quot; available as well. My remote went missing foir the Sony and many features cam only be accessed by remote. I've been diligently following the dog around (looking for evidence) and the cleaners don't remember putting it somewhere unusual. I'm really over the non-standardized remotes, which could easily be assigned to a standard set of codes, with unique or differently implemented commands input as is described here. The remotes, plus valueless (to me) features like DM Port which is kind of like non-standard USB + analog sound only, to connect an expensive adapter (guess who is the one company.who makes them) to allow connection to another analog source. Although, in my view, the mainline home theater components are commodities, unless they can prove more, better, easier than competitor. In order to &quot;differentiate&quot; and push &quot;all BS Brand&quot; purchses they keep playing these games. Sony seems particularly fixed on this strategy, which is anti-consumer and driven by, perhaps greed or arrogance. What was that thing called? Walkman? I have purchased a Logitech universal remote, and their hardware as always is OK, but their software and UI appear consistent with their other products. And expensive. Good enough, when buying from a manufacturer is not. Good enough is often wonderful for a good Instructable, made, hacked, or baked.The authors invite corrections and input as to other solutions, and usually ate very clear about limitations or ob- /nonob- jectives. Yet manufactures of hardware and software are rarely (often never) willing to state &quot;no this product doesn't do that&quot;. Or they use message boards to obfuscate or worse, attempt to &quot;manage&quot; comments and responses.
&nbsp;Nice. &nbsp;I wish the remote had more than just &quot;Cable&quot; and &quot;Aux&quot;. &nbsp;I need to be able to control one more device, and I just can't do it with this remote. &nbsp;I need to break down and get a good universal remote. &nbsp;Thanks for this!
Awesome!<br /> <br /> My remote does my box and TV automatically, but when I watch a DVD, I need to use my Comcast remote, TV remote and DVD remote to get it to work.<br /> <br /> Hopefully this i'ble will solve that.<br /> <br /> Thanks!<br />
