The easiest way to program your Comcast remote to your TV or other electronic devices is by using the auto-programming method. Sometimes this can be a tedious process and requires some patience, but most of the time it works just fine and has you up and running in no time. But what was the code that worked? This tutorial will teach you how to find the Comcast remote code that was discovered during the auto-program method.
The volume lock on your Comcast remote is a convenient feature to have because it makes adjusting the volume much easier and a lot less confusing. Typically you would have separate volumes for all your devices, such as TV, Cable box and maybe an audio amplifier. The volume lock forces the Comcast remote to always send the code for the device of your choosing. You’ve probably experienced this if you’ve ever tried to turn the volume up but doesn’t seem to get very loud, even at full volume. Then you find out that the volume on your Cable box has been turned all the way down. So you hit the cable button, turn the volume up only to realize that the TV volume is still at full blast….sound familiar? The volume lock on your Comcast remote puts a stop to all of that
Skip those commercials 30 seconds at a time!
Comcast cable boxes allow you to skip commercials if you so choose. The only thing better than that would be to skip them even faster!!

Reasons for Resetting a Comcast Remote
First of all, resetting your Comcast Remote should really be used as a last resort. You should first try general troubleshooting to see if you can re-program the remote and call Comcast to see if they can help you fix your issue. If you call Comcast and they cannot resolve your issue, they will recommend that you take the remote to your nearest Comcast center and trade it in for a new one. But, I know that finding the time to do this and then standing in line on your lunch break is not your idea of fun. So, you can try to reset the remote first, before you take it back. I mean, what have you got to lose?
Making Xbox 360, Netflix and Comcast Play Together
If you have an XBox 360 and Netflix, then more than likely you have activated your Xbox so you can watch Netflix on it. This is just one of the cool features of the XBox 360 and personally I absolutely love it. The problem is that unless you have an XBox wireless remote, you have to use the XBox controller to navigate everything. On top of that, you still need your Comcast remote to adjust the volume of your TV. This is a major inconvenience if all you want to do is pause or rewind a show that you’ve been watching. Especially if you’ve been watching long enough for the XBox controller to power off. So now you have to power it back on before you can pause or rewind Netflix. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could start up Netflix and then use your Comcast remote to navigate all the movies and play functions?
