Programming Comcast Remote for Dummies i.e. ME
Gear mentioned in this thread:
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.
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.
|Function||EFC||Func Num||Function||EFC||Func Num||Function||EFC||Func Num|
|channel down||00185||1||T. Option||00217||33||<<||00066||143|
|vol down||00187||3||AV Mode||00149||48||Energy Saving||00128||149|
|arrow left||00186||7||arrow up||00165||64||Guide||00099||171|
|power||00053||8||arrow down||00169||65||Ratio Zoom||00098||175|
You mentioned some functions which are not listed in the LG Manual for the 46LD550. Is that really your TV model?
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!
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.
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.

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.
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.
