I have been trying and trying to get the Comcast remote at least turn my Sylvania LC427ssx on / off / volume etc...basic functions.
Comcast chat / help has provided over 2 dozen 5 digit codes, but none seem to work. This remote is the dark grey/graphite with red oval OK/enter button.
I have tried reading everything available and I think 3 or 4 times "chatted" now. I was given the 9-1-1- and channel + trial too. Nothing seems to "click"
I have the same remote for another TV and tried everything on that one too. Does not work the Sylvania either. The Sylvania has a HD converter box. The other remote runs an Insignia TV with a HD DVR box. Tried swapping those remotes and ran each of the 25+ codes, and did the 9-1-1- channel + operation to no avail.
I also have 2 sets with the small digital adapters and their small all black remotes. On of those other sets is a Sylvania also. The small adapter remote from that set DOES operate the LC427ssx just fine. The techs didn't find any solution a couple months ago when they installed, nothing Comcast provides has worked, I haven't gotten any response or reply from Sylvania. Wondering if there is anything else to try??? Anyone have similar??? Any success?? THANKS!!!!
I have another smaller Sylvania that the remote for my p.o.s. little digital converter box works fine for.
There were codes listed for that set/box/remote and it worked. The little remote actually works my bigger Sylvania set too. Why does Comcast list so many Sylvania codes if Sylvania does not release the info? I tried EVERY code and EVERY solution that Comcast had to offer w/o any luck. I mean EVERY code listed on their sheets, EVERY manufacturer ! ! ! Comcast's help and chat was no help either. I do not believe the "universal" remote will work with my set and it just needs to be admitted. I have just learned to keep 2 remotes out instead of just the one.
Appreciate any updates or info if anyone does find a solution. Thanks and Good Luck!!!
I do not have any problems or blame for Sylvania at all. I have 2 of their sets and been very happy with the TVs themselves. Either Comcast or Motorola (their name is on my DVR and convertor boxes) needs to better support what they call a "Universal" remote. Or call it what it really is and add a disclaimer...Almost Universal Remote or Universal except Sylvania 'cause we don't get along with certain manufacturers type remote. It would seem simple enough of a fix, but...I guess not
Most likely code: 10054 Others to try: 10171, 11963, 11271, 10187, 10030, 11314, 10587
To program your Comcast remote:
Turn on the TV or other device that you would like to program.
Press the TV button on your remote control. NOTE: If you would like to program your remote control to work with a DVD Player, VCR or Audio device press the AUX button.
Press and hold Setup until the red light blinks twice, then release Setup.
Enter the first code for your device listed above. If you perform this procedure correctly, the red light will blink twice. NOTE: If you enter an invalid code, the red light will display one long blink and exit the programming mode. Repeat steps 2 to 4 with a valid code.
Aim the remote control at your device and press Power once (press the Play key for devices that don’t have a POWER button). If the TV turns off, make sure that the VOL+/- and Mute buttons also work. If so, you’re all set!
If not, repeat these steps using the next manufacturer’s code (you may need to try several codes to find the one that works).
I will give that a try ... seems like there should have been an update of some sort by now !!!
From either side, Comcast or Sylvania. I have seen and read quite a few of these from a good amount of folks screwed by this. I am on my 3rd Comcast remote in the other room for a different Insignia set too. It always runs the converter/dvr but gives up on the TV set. New replacement works everything fine. WEIRD how just a certain section of the remote can fail

LC320SSX with the silver remote with red "OK" is my contribution to the incompatible group. We had it woking with the digital converter box, but the large Digital Cable box is a bust. I see that some of you got codes to work for the LC320ss2 but for some reason, my model wont work. Ive spent hours today trying to get it to work, tried all the recommended solutions and all the ones I saw here. Worst part is I dont have a remote for the TV anymore. Se if anyone has the solution for this TV please POST !
I have had the same problem getting the comcast controls programmed for Sylvania. Code 11864 works for me on the small black remote but does not work on the larger grey remote. Thanks anaxus for all your time. Its been two years not and Comcast still hasn't posted your new found code. Shame on them.
I had the same issue previously when I had DirecTV, the remotes arent compatable with these TV's the codes that work for the tv arent available in these remotes, for DirecTV I had to buy the newest remotes DirecTV had out of my pocket and they worked fine after that, now that I'm with Comcast I'm back to square one
I could never get my Comcast/Xfinity remote to function my Sylvania TV and have just lived with multiple remotes the past few years. However, my original TV remote just died and so I was determined to get the Comcast remote to start working. After going through the motions of trying to program the remote yet again, I came across this forum and found your suggestion for the 11864 code and it worked! Thanks for posting it.
Also if you happen to have a Samsung phone or tablet (they have IR blasters) the Peel app will control your Sylvania, that is the one way I figured out to work the tv & receiver box with a single remote
I have 2 Sylvania tv's the installer left me 2 of the dark remotes, one works perfectly and controls the tv, the other doesn't and actually won't even control the converter box, so I'm thinking it is an RF controller instead of IR
