Can I program my red OK button Comast DVR remote to do most if not all the functions that my LG 46LD550 TV remote can do?
Please provide step by step instructions on how programming needs to be performed. Please treat me like a 5 year old!
Yes, every function supported by the TV can be programmed into the Comcast remote. But there are about 50 functions, and many of these are already available on setup code 10178. How about telling us which buttons you are looking for?
Thank you so much for the prompt response.
First of all, I need help in the programming procedure. i.e. How do I assign a certain functionality to a certain key.
I need simple buttons like navigational keys the let me navigate through the TV menu option. Right now all my remote does is bring up the TV menu when I click the comcast remote. I cant seem to go anywhere else.
I can also switch inputs between HDMI and PC (but I dont think enter button works while I am switching puts).
Features I would like to have are in the following order:
1. Navigational keys and enter key.
2. A/V Mode
3. My MEDIA to access files from my computer.
4. Youtube and Yahoo widgets if possible.
5. Back, Delete and space bar button during data entry.
Help in setting any of these options would be greatly appreciated.
Assign setup code 11265 to the TV button
1) Tap TV
2) Press Setup until 2 blinks
3) Enter 11265
Should get 2 blinks
For any function below, choose a button to assign the function to. For the OK function, the OK/Select button is obvious. But a button like SimpLink or Energy Saving may take some thought to make the choice mnemonic.
The process to assign (I'll use OK as an example). Make sure that the remote is in TV mode before making the EFC assignment.
1) Press Setup until 2 blinks
2) Enter 994 (2 blinks)
3) Tap Setup
4) Enter 00164 (or other EFC for other functions)
5) Tap OK/Select
The remote should blink twice.
You mentioned some functions which are not listed in the LG Manual for the 46LD550. Is that really your TV model?
Thanks dude, u are awesome.
I was wrong with the size it is an LG52LD550.
The remote will be truly universal if I can get Youtube and Yahoo widgets on the comcast remote.
I looked in the manual for hexa codes. They are 58 and 59 respectively. I tried to convert them to decimal and program but didnt work.
What could I be doing wrong?
Manual? Which manual is that? I didn't find YouTube or Yahoo function numbers in either the 46 or 52LD550 manual that LG has on-line.
Anyway, YouTube hexadecimal 58 turns into EFC 00229. Yahoo hexadecimal 59 is 00233.
Here is the link for the manual; The name of the functions is actually netcast and widgets (not youtube or yahoo)http://www.iusermanual.com/tv/lg-52ld550-tv-manual.htm
The buttons worked great!
Now that you have taught a man to fish, I ventured out and programmed my first macro - i.e. to get subtitles using comcast on HDMI input.
I programmed a button that shuts down cable goes to the menu scroll 4 arrows down one arrow left and 4 arrow back up turns off menu and restarts cable. Believe it or not it worked!
Lastly, I would like to have guide, favorite and menu features of comcast menu to be available in TV mode and want to start the remote in TV mode (not in cable mode).
I tried this but it didn't work===>
""""""I was wondering if it's possible to "unlock" the Guide button on the remote so it would work when it's in TV mode and not only when it's in CABLE mode? It used to work for my old remote (had a grey OK/Select button) but since i got the new remote (with the red OK/Select button) it doesn't work any more.
It is possible:
press 'TV', press and hold 'Setup' until the TV light blinks twice, enter '9-9-4', press 'Setup' again, enter '0-0-0-5-0', press 'Guide', the TV light should blink twice. """""
What is the solution for this - o' wise one!
See this link for more information on how to program
In particular, to copy a button from Cable to TV:
1. Press Setup until 2 blinks.
2. Enter 994 (2 blinks)
3. Tap the "from" device button (Cable)
4. Tap the "from" regular button (eg, Guide)
5. Tap the "to" device button (TV)
6. Tap the "to" regular button (eg, Guide) - two blinks
See the above link for how to erase 994 keymoves.
Thanks for the manual. It has more codes than the similarly named manual I downloaded from LG.com.
While you're at the above link, take a look around. If you download RemoteMaster (free), then you can convert the Hexadecimal codes to EFC values yourself.
BTW, I added more functions to the EFC list above.
Thanks once again. I was able to copy key functionality between devices.
This looks like a complete document now for all LG550 owners.
I am unable to program any macro on my remote.
I press and hold set up until the light blinks twice. Press 995.
Press the key i want to program and then the sequence. Then I press and hold set-up. It is not working!
Any one care to help
Some keys can't be programmed, like the device selection keys, setup key and sometimes power key. Other keys take multiple macros, like the fav key. What key are you trying to put the macro on? Are you holding setup at the end for 2 blinks. By not working, do you mean you don't get 2 blinks at the end, or the macro doesn't play back as expected?
I don't get the two blinks. I am holding the set-up key down at the end. I was trying to program the A key.
Since key moves and macros use the same memory space, it's possible you're out of memory. Your remote can hold about 80 key moves. Macros vary by length. You could try deleting a few non-essential key moves (EFCs) and try again. To clear a key move, pick your device key, hold setup for 2 blinks, 994, press key to be cleared twice (2 blinks).
Can you provide a similar table for a Philips TV model 32PFL533D/37?
Can you provide a similar table for a Philips TV model 32PFL533D/37?
Philips gets kind of complicated. It would be better if you tell us what setup code you're using today and what functions you need. Then we can get you a list of just those codes. I also need to know what model remote you're programming (not the Philips remote model).
I'm using a silver Comcast remote with a red OK button and a program code of 11454. I'm especially interested in getting the OK/Select button working so I can select things in the TV Menu because I don't have a Philips remote. I could apparently also use a setup code of 10690, if that would work better. The remote model is URC#1067cBM3-0001-R.
Not sure these will work, since I had to do some guessing. But give them a try using setup code 21267:
PREV CH 39480
VOL + 51768
VOL - 49720
BRIGHT + 55864
BRIGHT - 53816
COLOR + 43576
COLOR - 41528
CH + 19256
CH - 17208
up arrow 02104
down arrow 65592
left arrow 06200
right arrow 04152
active control 46648
contrast - 03384
contrast + 58680
discrete off 62159
discrete on 62151
format auto 60111
This is the most flexible setup code, but the downside is you'll have to use EFCs for nearly every function. Let me know which ones don't work, and I'll make some different assumptions and give you some alternate codes to try.
I thought 21267 was working, but when I couldn't get the OK Button code to work I tried entering 21267 again and couldn't even get back to the TV by hitting the Menu Button.
Like I said, 21267 isn't going to work at all until you program every EFC. That's just the way it is. If all you care about is OK, then use 10690 and EFC 00176. But that requires lots of EFCs too and won't do every function, so that will require some tricky programming (temporarily setting another device to 10690, programming the EFC, keymoving it, then changing the code back to what it was before). Just decide which way you want to go and I'll post the appropriate codes.
EDIT: I just thought of a much simpler solution that might work. Use your original setup code and Key copy OK from TV mode to CBL mode like so:
PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
TAP 9 - 9 - 4.
TAP the "from" DEVICE button (eg, TV)
TAP the "from" regular button (eg, OK)
TAP the "to" DEVICE button (eg, CBL)
TAP the "to" regular button (eg, OK) - two Blinks
The latter option works, but now I need a code for using the up/down and right/left cursor buttons when in cable mode so I don't have to keep switching back and forth between TV and cable mode when in the TV Menu. Do you know what the cursor button code should be for cable mode?
P.S. While looking for a cursor button code, I found a TV mode EFC for the OK button on the JP1 site by searching with a setup code of 1454 (short for 11454) in TV mode for a Comcast 1067BX3 JP1.3. The code is 00007. Now I can do everything I want with my remote in TV mode. Thanks for all your help though, in getting me where I want to be with my remote.
If I'm understanding correctly you want the TV arrows to work in CBL mode. If so, just repeat the steps above for each, i.e., after 994, press TV, UP, CBL, UP for the up button. Repeat the whole procedure for each of the other arrow buttons.
No, actually I was really trying to find an EFC for the OK button in TV mode for activating things in the TV Menu, but thanks, if I ever need to use the cursor buttons in cable mode I'll know how to do that too.
Could you help me to find the Comcast EFC list for my fujicom tv
I'm using code 11080
11080 (TV 1080) sends the RC5 IR protocol, with device 0. There are lots of TVs using this IR protocol, especially Philips, but while basic functions like Vol up/down, etc are the same for all the TVs, there isn't much standardization for other functions. I would probably just try every EFC from 00000 to 00255. You can see the EFCs sent by the 11080 by using the Lookup Tool
Thank you for the quick respond ,
For some reason I can't find the ok/select code
Which I need to select one of the tv input
I tried the all 256 code to find the ok/select code (I did it when the input menu was on and focus )
Without any success
Do you have more code that I could try
Make sure that the TV has a menu displayed when you're looking for Select. Here are several possibilities, all from TVs using RC5 Device 0: 00113, 00007,00083,00076,00241,00046,00081,00239,00245,00103. Otherwise, I don't have any suggestions.
I guess I missed it before but 83 is working
