the comcast remote is not designed to be replaced, I have not seen codes for the actual box to use on a universal remote. The only way I have seen it work is with a learning remote that actually captures the signal from one remote and then stores it in memory, and xfinity is not a brand of box that just the branding on the front, look on the back for the actual model and try to google the question to see if anyone has found a way to do this.
The remote that came with my xfinity box barely runs the tv. Its the second box and remote. Hate this remote. Comcast should supply all of us with remotes that run atleast the box and tv. I also have to recycle my set top box every few weeks or my on demand disappears. Now I am trying to hook up my Samsung DVD to watch my old movies on and I can not find the instructions on what buttons to hit to search for the code to make it work with this crappy remote. I have not tried to hook it up since hooking up the set top box. Does someone remember what buttons to hit and how long to hold the button down? Thanks for the Info and letting me beach off!! Bonnie
I have contacted the company of my remote and they have told me that I need to contact the company of the digital set top box to get the code for the remote. So this is xfinity. I have an Insignia NS-RC05A-11 remote and am trying to connect it to the xfinity DCl105com1 digital box. If you could please help with a code that will allow me to use my remote with this box and not the xfinity remote as it cannot control my Blu-ray player, it would be greatly appriciated. Thank you.
You will need to go to the Mfr of the universal remote to find the proper code and procedure if you don't have the original instructions.
If you have a Motorola set top box, look for codes for Jerrold / GI / Motorola for the right code.
If you post the brand and model of the universal remote, we might be able to help more, and post the model of Comcast supplied set top box or DVR.
