If the remote you have is this:
the bad news is that there is no built in code for the TV.
The less bad news is that I think you can use the HP's remote to control the cable box. The code is either 0031 or 0032, but I seem to recall it wasn't very satisfactory.
If you are handy with electronics and can build a simple circuit, or if you willing to buy a $20 cable, however, there is good news. The remote is what's called JP1.2 type remote. You can read about it and the great work some really brilliant people are doing over here:http://www.hifi-remote.com/jp1/index.shtml
The site is mainly focused on JP1 remotes, which are older, but still current design, but there are some info on the JP1.2 remotes, particularly in the forum sections. Basically, in the remote's battery compartment, there is a 6 pin header that you can use to connect to the computer via a cable you can either make or buy, and then using a couple of programs they have developed there, you can program and add upgrades to the remote. Just remember that you have to build or buy the slightly more complicated JP1.2 cable, not the simple JP1 cable.
If you decide to try this route, I can help you through the steps of upgrading, since they only recently added support for the protocol that the HP TV uses for the Comcast remote, and I don't think it's yet built in to the tools they have available for downloading. Also, for some reason, I've only gotten the volume keys and the input select key to send the right signal so far. If you are using a cable box, though, you don't need anything else mostly, but I'm working on getting the other buttons to work right now.
Of course, for $15-$20 you can also buy a URC-8820 universal remote (which BTW, is also a JP1.2 remote) and have One for All upgrade it for you over the phone to work with your HP TV and the Comcast STB, but where's the fun in that?
