The remote should blink twice if programming is successful.

Repeat the above steps for the other input selection keys and use the codes below in step 5:

Tuner = 00057
AUX = 00121

I found these from JP1 site's[/url] upgrade files for similar models, but I haven't found one for USB, which I think your model has.

EDIT: I just looked at a similar model of Samsung HT device and I guess USB is accessed through the AUX button. Is that correct?

That is correct. It worked like a charm!!!! Thank you for your help.

first of all, I can't thank you enough for all of your info. i now have my comcast remote controlling every function for my Vizio HDTV and just about every function for my Samsung HT-X40 All in One. The one function I cannot find that would make my Comcast remote truly universal are the fast forward/rewing and previous and last chapter buttons. I tried to go to the JP1 forums and looks at the file upgrades that you mentioned, but I have no idea how you extracted those codes from those text files. If you can provide the codes to assign these functions to my Comcast remote or just how you extracted them from JP1, I would be eternally grateful!

Thanks again.

Try these advanced codes:

SpeedUpFWD = 00219
SpeedUpREV = 00091
Next track = 00123
Prev Track = 00251

In order to read those files, you need to get Remote Master (which in turn needs Java and a few other support files downloadable at the JP1 site). Change the remote pulldown menu to your remote. The codes you would use for the functions are the ones under "EFC" or "EFC5" if available. If the codes are 3-digit codes (ie when there's no "EFC5"), add two zeros to the front of the codes.

the fast forward and rewind codes didn't work for some reason, but the next and previous tracks worked, which will let me skip through all the preview junk on DVDs and skip songs on CDs, so I'm happy.Thanks again!

Which Comcast remote do you have? Is the "Select/OK" button in the middle of the arrow keys red or grey? If it is grey, you should be able to use AUX/1932 and follow the steps starting in Post #30 to add missing functions, unless Samsung changed the protocol used in HT-X50.
If the button is red, Comcast seems to have taken out that code and there are no equivalent code you can use that I can find. Only way to do it in that case is to get a JP1.2 cable and add the upgrade yourself (assuming HT-X50 uses the same protocol as Samsung's other HT devices).

Thanks for the info on the comcast remote for the samsung home theater. I have the red select button. I don't know what those cords are?
Also, will my Visio remote work with my ht-x50?
Thanks,
Matt

Is the remote that came with your TV universal version? If it is, setup code DVD/21932 should be get you some of the functions. It's made by the same OEM as the Comcast remote so you should be able to add missing functions the same way as the steps outlined above to program them in. If you need additional functions, post what are missing.

It worked for my Vizio universal remote but I need the codes to the volume and function, zoom and mute.
Thanks
post #40 of 126
The volume and the mute should already be programmed but try these:

vol up = 00155
vol down = 00027
mute = 00025
zoom = 00058
DVD = 00249
Tuner = 00057
Aux/USB = 00121
open/close = 00149
dimmer = 00245
remain = 00181
cancel = 00122
menu = 00150
enter = 00184
audio = 00182
subtitle = 00054
step = 00024
repeat = 00198
PL II mode = 00180
PL II effect = 00052
dsp/eq = 00212
tuner memory; SD/HD = 00088
slow = 00152
MO/ST = 00246
test tone = 00148
sound edit = 00116
zoom = 00058
logo = 00021
slide mode = 00250
digest = 00053
sleep = 00217
ez view = 00186
post #41 of 126
They worked great but for some reason I could not get the fast forward/00219 and reverse/00091 to work. Are there different codes for those? Thanks

Not sure if this thread has any legs left in it, but I'll try, anyways.

I Love all the info provided in the previous threads, but none of it has proven helpful in "completely" unlocking my COMCAST REMOTE ( http://www.therazor.org/images/comcast_remote.jpg ) to gain access to my VIZIO's higher functions (VIZIO P42 HDTV - SP42a.)

The code that I eventually used, that came via an email from a VIZIO customer service rep, was TV CODE 11756, which wasn't one of the codes mentioned previously on this thread. This code has allowed me to use my COMCAST REMOTE (see link above) to turn the TV on, control it's volume and provide me with limited access to the VIZIO MENU, which is useless, as it only lets me see the functions, like: PICTURE, AUDIO, SOURCE, GRAPHIC, CLOCK, SETUP ETC, but leaves me unable to access them to do anything.

I've tried all the codes and advice posted in other threads, but nothing seems to work. I also tried to reset the functions on the COMCAST REMOTE's "TV" function button, as advised in post #17, but that didn't work either.

CRAP!!!!

I joined this forum just to get this info, so hopefully someone here can provide some helpful advice. Needless to say, it will be very, VERY appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Give code 11758 a try.
post #48 of 126
download a Vizio manual from their website and try those codes, I have a VX37L and a GV42LF and both manuals are available online and have listings for programming other devices and also suggested codes for other brand remotes to work your tv.

To get from the menu to change the settings try using the arrowpad to highlight the setting category then down arrow to get into settings, left and right arrow to adjust, can do this with my Insight DVR remote.

I would imagine that the code you meant is TV/11758 (as Edmund suggested), since that's what's listed in the TV's manual, and that's what most Vizio TV's use. BTW, code TV/0178 uses the same protocol, to that would work just a well, and older Comcast remotes had that and not 11758, except possibly 11758 has more functions defined by default.

Using that setup code, you can add the missing functions by doing the following. For example to add Up Arrow function:
1. Press and release TV
2. Press and hold SETUP until the remote blinks twice.
3. Type 9 9 4
4. Press and release SETUP
5. Type 0 0 1 6 8
6. Press and release UP ARROW key
The remote should blink twice. Now the UP ARROW key should work. To add the rest of the missing functions, repeat steps 2-6, use the codes listed in POST #22 in step 5, and press the key you want to assign that function to in step 6.
post #50 of 126
First off, thanks for the replies. Any advice is appreciated.

I've tried the code TV/11758, but that just seems to be another code that doesn't work. Imputing that code, which the remote appears to except by "blinking twice," only yields me a dead remote, or, at least, one that isn't acknowledged by my VIZIO. I also tried code TV/0178, but that isn't read at all by the remote (No "blinking" happens to show acceptance.) I then input in the the original code back in, TV/11756, and was given back the limited functionality that I mentioned above. Again, this is the COMCAST remote that I'm using ( http://www.therazor.org/images/comcast_remote.jpg ), if that helps.

Just to be redundant, I then did as Kupakai suggested in post #49... starting with code TV/11758, followed by steps 1 - 6 with code 994, etc. All of this seems to be accepted by the COMCAST remote, but isn't acknowledged by my VIZIO. Then I put back in the original code TV/11756 that I had used, followed by inputing Kupakai's info for steps 1 - 6 and code 994 and applying it to UP ARROW KEY, which make the remote "Blink twice," but appears to make that particular key useless. Weird.

Again, with code TV/11756, I can access the menu and toggle through the menu options, but I am unable to press "OK" and access their individual functionality.

I've gone back and have tried a variety of codes provide in post #22, along with my original code TV/11756, and again all seem to be accepted by the COMCAST REMOTE, but the VIZIO doesn't read any of them.

As to the info that PETE W gave in post #48, I've already downloaded the manuel for the VIZIO P42 - SP42a, but the only codes that they provide are for, surprise... the VIZIO REMOTE.

What to do now? Should I just give in an buy the VIZIO UNIVERSAL REMOTE.

Thanks again guys!

I like the new Vizio remote that came with my GV42LF but mine may have been a dud and stopped working after about a month. I got frustrated with that and having no control over some of the TV stuf so I got a Harmony 550 and like it ok but it just didn't feel right, I'm used to the Insight cable remote and the one from my older VX37 that was a multi device remote and the striaght 550 was a little too different or maybe I didn't give it enough time since I bought a Harmony 880 from Amazon and now love it.
If you are considering spending $49 on a Vizio remote first go by BB or CC and check out the Harmony's see which feels comfortable, they all seem to work similar enough but the feel, shape and button layout varies and each model seems to have it's own following. you can get a 550 for about $80 and a 880 for about $140 maybe less on both.

Before you give up on the Comcast remote, try this. I found an instance of Vizio TV using that code, so maybe you can try these advanced code set. Set the Comcast to TV/11756 and follow the same procedures as the top to add the missing functions. Some of those may not be relevant to your TV since they are for another model of Vizio TV that uses TV/11756. Try the "OK" functions first.

0 = 00180
1 = 00168
2 = 00117
3 = 00121
4 = 00059
5 = 00053
6 = 00057
7 = 00170
8 = 00043
9 = 00042
vol up = 00052
vol down = 00056
mute = 00186
channel up = 00105
channel down = 00041
power = 00187
menu = 00250
Wide = 00123
Info = 00055
exit = 00245
up arrow = 00244
down arrow = 00249
left arrow = 00251
right arrow = 00246
OK = 00169
Sleep = 00073
Input = 00181
last/prev ch = 00182
+100 = 00184
Pip - = 00119
Pip + = 00120
Pip Ch + = 00118
Pip Ch - = 00248
Zoom = 00032
Freeze = 00151
Pip Scan = 00216
Audio = 00214
Tv = 00217
Comp = 00215
PC = 00219
AV = 00212
PIP Position = 00203
PIP On/OFF = 00201
PIP Swap = 00196
CC = 00200
PIP STYLE = 00197
PIP SOURCE = 00199

Thanks for the reply and advice, Kupakai. However, when I input the codes to designate a function to the COMCAST REMOTE, say applying a code to the UP ARROW KEY, or the "OK" button, all the codes seem to do is neutralize the buttons function all together. Meaning that when I apply a code to UP ARROW or LEFT or RIGHT ARROW, then I am unable to use it, or toggle UP, RIGHT, LEFT... what ever. It's like I get the exact opposite result that I want.

Has anyone ever encountered this?

Thanx,

I'm trying to reset two vizio remotes based kupakai's instructions but am still having problems. I'm following these steps:
1) select TV
2) hold SET until two blinks
3) press 994
4) press TV (light blinks twice)
5) press TV (light blinks twice)

The light now blinks three times for every button that I push. Any idea's what might be wrong?
post #55 of 126
You guys are lifesavers! I never would have found that code for Vizios on the older (gray button) remotes. Thanks so much. I have both gray button and red button Comcast remotes: gray uses 4 digit codes and red uses 5 digit codes and it's a major hassle. The red button remotes (by red or gray I mean on the OK/Select button) don't recognize the Samsung HT-Q40 anymore but the gray button remotes do. I went to the Comcast office and had them dig a gray button one out of their return bin. They can do that for anyone who needs the older codes only found on gray button 3-way remotes.

By the way, if you need a link to get PDF files for all of Comcasts multiple remote types, in case anyone needs them, I can indicate it without putting it in as a URL. Go to comcast.com slash corporate slash customers slash customer_support slash remotes.hmtl

Thanks again!

I called there hot line and was informed to use LG or Goldstar code for my remote to work on my TV
post #57 of 126
Thanks so much everyone for the info!

Question: Is there a Picture Mode (Movie, Vivid, Game, Sport, etc) program code for the Vizio/0178 ? I didn't see it on your list Kupakai.

Thanks!

Hi there, I'm not sure this is the right forum to ask my question if not pls let me know which forum to post my question.

Ok, here is the deal, I just purchased the Vizio VP504F, the new 50 inch plasma 1080p.

It works great and was a steal in my opinion at $1399 at Costco Online, but I really wanted the 52 inch LCD. I also own a Samsung 40 inch LCD which is beautiful no complaints. Because my friend has a Panasonic Plasma, I was impressed by the blacks that you can't get on a LCD. So that's why I bit the bullet and went with the 50 inch plasma.

Again, everything works great, actually had to drive down the brightness and contrast. It's way too much with the default settings.

Oh man, I'm getting wordy. Sorry.. on to my question:

The 'VIZIO V-Remo Universal Remote VUR8' which is pretty nice and has a lot of features but for some reason I cannot program the remote for my Pioneer DSX812 (I think that's the number) receiver/amp 7.1 surround system. Not even the Pioneer DVD that came with the receiver.

All the codes in the manual don't work and I find it strange that these codes are not listed, this is a new remote according to Vizio tech support.

A few codes that they list to try are not even being accepted, which I find very strange.

So the question is: Does anyone know of a source of additional codes?

Or is there a possiblity that the remote I have came DOA, not a properly functioning remote and maybe I need to have Vizio replace it?

Thank you!

Rob

Try code 31023, what are the pioneer codes listed in the vizio manual?
