Programing a remote thats not listed

I recently purchased a 40" BOLVA TV from Brandsmart, and I have the Xfinity X1 platform, but I could not find a code that I can program the remote with. Does anyone have a solution on how to program my new TV.

There is a way to search for codes:

Re: Programing a remote thats not listed

To program your cable/satellite remote, follow the instructions provided by your provider
and use one of the codes below:

 

    • The remote code for Comcast/Xfinity is 10030
    • The remote code for DirecTV is 10030
    • The remote code for AT&T (U-verse) is 1043
    • The remote code for Dish Network is 506
    • The remote code for RCA Universal remotes is 0030

Please clarify. Are you trying to program the TV's remote to control the cable box or are you trying to program an X1 remote to control your TV?

Hold down setup until the X1 remote lights green then press 991 green light will blink then go off,.. while pointing the remote at the tv press the channel up button until the tv turns off. (Go slowly if you hit the channel up button again after the tv turns off that means you attempted another code.) After the tv turns off press the setup button again and the green light will blink and you'll be good to go. 😁

How do I do this for a sound bar that does not work with the listed manufacturer codes on the X1 platform using the X1 remote. My sound bar is a Definitive Technologies W Studio ( not micro).

Follow the same instructions as above but use 992 instead. Not every sound bar is compatible.

I was able to get the remote to turn the tv off but not able to turn it back on. How do you set the remote after finding the code? I had to use the A&D and 991 option.

press the A button on the remote. select remote setup and yes on the name of your TV shown. the screen will detect the remote if RF paired and shows directions: Press and hold the Xfinity and Mute buttons (together) for 5 seconds, when the remote's LED changes from red to green, input the number.

is it a CRT (picture tube) TV or a projection TV? does it have an integrated DVR or VCR? usually those are not controllable by the Comcast remotes.

Ok so I did the A&D and pressed 991 and that turned my tv off. My remote does not have a set up button. How do I turn it on?

Re: Programing a remote thats not listed

Did you ever figure out how to turn the tv back on? I am having the same issue after pressing a&d and 991

Re: Programing a remote thats not listed

You’ll probably have to try a different code

Hi Andrew,

I was able to get the tv to turn off after pressing a&d and pressing 991. The issue I am having is geting the tv turned back on since my remote does not have a set up button. Someone posted in the forum that after you get the tv turned off you have to press the set up button. My remote doesn’t have a set up button.

Re: Programing a remote thats not listed

You can try pressing ok but it sounds more like you don’t have the right code
Expert

Re: Programing a remote thats not listed

count your presses of the up channel button. don't hit the OK button for the code that did not work (use TV remote to turn TV back on). I would just cover the front end of the remote when getting to the code that did not work properly and the TV won't turn off for that code.
