Remote Control App..

I'm trying to find a remote control app to use with my tv in my bedroom, on a Motorola digital adapter box. I cannot find the remote I was using. I've been trying EVERY app, to no avail, and it's driving me crazy not being able to change the channel.. Can someone PLEASE help me? It would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thank you!

Sorry but There isn’t one for adapters. You’ll need a new remote

DTAs are basic/limited boxes that have no communication back and forth. If you have other cable box remotes in your house, try one

You can get a remote from Comcast. Also, a local store should have some universal remotes that will control it. Given the very basic remote they give with the DTA's, a universal remote may gain a few functions.

So, the remote that controls the main cable box may be able to control it?

Maybe. If it's NOT the older silver remote, it can. The newer gray and XR series remotes will work.

New Remote?

Hi, I was hoping a new Comcast remote could be sent to me? Please let me know, ASAP, as I'm losing my mind not being able to change the channel. I need one that'll work with the Motorola Digital Box..
