Re: remote code for vizio sandbar VSB200

This was really helpful. Thank you very much to the first person who posted the detailed instructions. It worked perfectly. Also big thanks to the person who posted the wikibooks page on how to lock the soundbar's volume to other modes on the remote. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It really completes the experience of seamlessly integrated AWESOME sound into your comcast remote. I have the light silver remote with the red OK button FYI. 

 

Also on the second part, make sure you press AUX before you start so it locks "TV" and "Cable" volume up and down to the sound bar.

Thank you. It worked flawlessly for me. I was so tired of barely being able to control the sound bar with that piece of junk remote that comes with it.

Re: remote code for vizio soundbar VSB200

I have the red ok button. When do I press the red select button in the sequence? After I input 994, I always get the 2 blinks before pressing setup. What am I doing wrong?

Re: remote code for vizio soundbar VSB200

Here, I am almost a year after your post and using your codes worked perfectly for my Xfinity remote. I recently bought the Vizio soundbar VSB202 which is a later model to the VSB200 maybe. Thank you very much for these codes!! Thought people might be interested to have this information. Thank you again for making remote life in our house easier.

Thanks so much for posting the very well done instructions for setting up the comcast remote to control the Vizio VSB 200 soundbar!!  I bought mine at an auction, and the seller said the remote that came with it didn't work well, but I thought I could fix it.  Well the remote was not sending a signal, and I thought I would have to go over to device and turn it on and make adjustments from there.  Then luckily a google search sent me to your post...THANKS A BUNCH!!

Re: remote code for vizio soundbar VSB200

I have the silver Comcast DVR remote with the gray OK/Select button and it doesn't accept the 5-digit "11144" code that's listed in the first step. Is there a 4-digit code that works for this remote?

Re: remote code for vizio soundbar VSB200

For the older remotes with 4 digit codes, drop the first "1" off the code.  For 11144 enter 1144.

Re: remote code for vizio soundbar VSB200

The gray OK button remotes are older, perhaps it is too old to support that specific code.  You can take the remote to your Comcast office for a swap to a silver remote with the red OK button.

Use this code for your remote: 31517. I just picked up a Comcast box on 11/24 and none of the other codes in earlier posts worked. Someone posted this code and it works for the volume only. I haven't figured out how to get the other functions to work.

 

Make sure you follow the programming instructions that came with the remote.

Re: remote code for vizio soundbar VSB200

I have the remote Comcast refers to as "Platinum Dark Silver"'

 

After much research, here is a step-by-step for getting your Vizio Soundbar to work with the Comcast remote using EFC codes (mine is the newer charcoal grey one, works great!) It needed a small modification to work. I added a Zero after the second code. If you have htis remote, use this sequence below.

 

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 11144 (2 blinks)
Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 001690 - Vol Up - Should get 2 blinks
Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 001680 - Vol Down - Should get 2 blinks
Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 000370 - Mute - Should get 2 blinks
Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 001650 - Power - Should get 2 blinks
Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 001640 - Input - Should get 2 blinks

 

These are optional, I didn't use them:
Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 000360 - <button to use for TVOL> - Should get 2 blinks
Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 001010 - <button to use for TSHD> - Should get 2 blinks

 

Then set the volume control on the remote and other settings according to the Remote's manual.

 

ENJOY!! Hope this helps someone...

Re: remote code for vizio soundbar VSB200

If you have the grey select remote button, the correct code to use instead of 11144 in the procedure you,should use 1915. The setup for the visio soundbar then works great.

Re: remote code for vizio soundbar VSB200

You're right. It did work perfectly. However, when I originally programmed the remote for my TV, there was an option to make the sound control default to controlling TV volume (instead of the volume on the Comcast box). Is there any way to make the remote volume default to the sound bar so I don't have to constantly go back and forth between "cable" and "aux" everytime I need to do something with cable, like change the channel? Thanks.

I followed the direction and most of it work great.  However the input and the power button have reversed functions.  Any ideals would be great.  I have the newer s3820 model.

Re: remote code for vizio soundbar VSB200

Dave - if you haven't figured it out yet, since your post is now two months old, follow the below instructions - from my post on the first page

Follow the instructions or link below to lock the vol setting to the Aux button, then you don't have to hit the Aux button to change volume and cable button to change channels. http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/How_to_use_a_Motorola_DVR/Programming_the_Remote#Volume_Lock Global Volume Lock will force the volume and mute keys to be controlled by one device. Press and hold the "Setup" key until a device key blinks twice. Type in the code 993. A device key should blink twice. Press and release the device key for the device you want the volume locked to. You will get two blinks if the lock is successful.

Re: remote code for vizio soundbar VSB200

I've gone through this several times without success. 

 

Tried one more time and actually had some success - BUT - the MUTE function has totally controlled the connection between TV and bar.  I have reprogrammed, powered everything off and on.  De-muted from the TV remote and the soundbar remote.  THe soundbar lights move when I volume up but I get no sound.  My only sound option is from the TV.  The soundbar accepts bluetooth from iPhone and the remote controls the volume.  Just not the Mute.  I tried again.  After I press Mute in the programming sequence, the AUX light is steady, No blinking.  Any thoughts?

 

Figured it out.  Somehow, I changed input as I was dealing with it.  THere is no Input setting on the Comcast remote.  Eventually, I realized that the Vizio controller had a remote controller and clicked through.  It brought TV up.  From there, I could play with TV remote settings.  But when I TRIED TO USE  THE reference to Wiki above that lets my Comcast remote manage volume, etc. which I assumed did not require popping buttons, it didn't work.  If Wiki instructions did intend to mean that we need to flip between TV and AUX to change channels people need to be more clear.  Bettter than 2 separate remotes, but is there a way to integrate these with a Comcast remote seamlessly.   THANKS>  THis isn't easy stuff.  I wish my kids were still home!!!

Re: remote code for vizio soundbar VSB200

This is an answer to my previous question.  I found it on the Comcast site and it allowed me to take the volume, power and mute functions that I had programmed into AUX button and transfer them into the TV button on the dark platinum Comcast remote.  I still have trouble with the Input and other functions from my soundbar, from both the AUX and TV buttons, but  day to day, I can watch TV and not change buttons.

 

Volume Lock

Volume Lock is a remote control function that forces the volume and mute keys to always send the codes for your audio device (typically the TV or an amplifier.) You can change what device is used for volume, or disable the feature. When disabled, the remote will send the volume code for whatever device is currently selected.

Setting Global Volume Lock

Global Volume Lock will force the volume and mute keys to be controlled by one device.

  1. Press and hold the "Setup" key until a device key blinks twice.
  2. Type in the code 993. A device key should blink twice.
  3. Press and release the device key for the device you want the volume locked to.
  4. You will get two blinks if the lock is successful.

Disable Volume Lock for one Device

This will disable Volume lock only when a particular device is selected on the remote.

  1. Press and release the device key for the device you want to disable the Volume Lock on.
  2. Press and hold the "Setup" key until a device key blinks twice.
  3. Type in the code 993. A device key should blink twice.
  4. Press and release the Volume Down (Vol -) button.
  5. The device key will blink FOUR times if successful.

Disable Global Volume Lock

This will disable Volume Lock for all devices. The Volume and Mute keys will send the codes for the selected device.

  1. Press and hold the "Setup" key until a device key blinks twice.
  2. Type in the code 993. A device key should blink twice.
  3. Press and release the Volume Up (Vol +) button.
  4. A device key will blink FOUR times if successful.

To anyone having an issue with the GLOBAL LOCK code not allowing you to control the volume and mute on the cable function.

 

Here is what I did and it worked perfectly.

 

Restore a Remapped Key

The following technique can be used to restore the original function to a key that has been remapped. You are essentially mapping the key onto itself.

  1. Press the device key ("Cable", "TV", or "AUX") for the device you want.
  2. Press and hold the "Setup" key until the selected device button blinks twice.
  3. Type in the code 994. The selected device key will blink twice.
  4. Press the key you are restoring twice. The device key will blink twice if successful.

I did this process three times, each time when I got to step 4 I either pressed the volume up, voume down, or mute twice.

 

This allowed my volume controls when in cable mode default to aux.

Re: remote code for vizio soundbar VSB200

I have the dark gray remote with the red OK button...programmed fine but the problem is, when my soundbar, a Vizio S3821w-CD0, is off and I adjust the volume with the cable remote, if turns the soundbar ON and adjusts the volume.  Oddly, the TV remote does NOT 'wake' the soundbar on when adjusting volume.  I've tried the lock methods and nothing seems to work.  I've also tried all TV remote codes that I could find.  It's an LG TV.  Any thoughts?

Thanks,

We're looking for a way to control a Vizio sound bar using the new X1 remote that has no AUX button. I have not found anything that works.
