My Comcast Motorola DVR Remote (silver with gray OK button) is dying and I am going to need to go to Comcast to get a replacement. I programmed the thing several years ago with codes for the TV and the audio receiver, 30 second skip, lock audio to audio receiver, DVR mute on something else, and a whole bunch of macros on the PIP keys to swap the TV and audio receiver inputs with a single button click. I cannot find any notes I may have had on exactly how I programmed these, especially the macros.
Is there a way to get the remote to display the code that is associated with a key and with a macro? If I get the same remote as a replacement is there a learning mode that can be used to copy over the macros? Is there a free/cheap way to read the IR codes from something like a smartphone or a Windows machine (I've got an IR receiver on a machine that used to be hooked up to the cable until they went all digital).
Thanks in advance for any help.
