In the sea of entertainment technology, the coffee table or sofa has become the repository for discarded, misplaced and seldom used remote controls. Devices such as the TV, DVD player, cable box, VCR and sound system each have their own remotes. Finding the appropriate remote, such as the one for the DVD player, sometimes can be a challenge. Thankfully, multi-device (universal) remotes were invented, and now several remotes can be combined into one device. Comcast provides one of these multi-device remotes with its digital cable service, and you can program it for not only the TV and cable box, but DVD functions as well.
Click the Comcast link in the Reference section below, or go to Comcast.com, scroll down the page and on the right side under 'Help & Support' click on "How to Program Your Comcast Remote."
Select the type of Comcast remote you have in section one. Select "DVD Player" in section two. In section three, type in the make and model of your DVD player.
Turn on the DVD player. Press the "Aux" button on your remote. Press and hold the "Setup" button until the "Aux" button flashes twice, then release the "Setup" button. Enter the first code provided on the web page. If the code is correct, the "Aux" button will flash red twice.
Press the power button on your remote. If the DVD player turns off you have entered the correct code. If it does not, repeat the procedure described in the above step, using other codes provided on the web page until you find the correct code.
- If you cannot find the correct code for your DVD player from the Comcast website, you can contact Comcast customer service or search the Internet for a code that may work with your specific device.
