I have a Samsung Home Theater In-A-Box, model HT-P38. I am using this with a Comcast Motorola DVR and have been trying to get it programmed to use with the remote that Comcast gives you so I can control the volume. I am using the "Platinum Dark Silver" version of the Comcast remote. I have tried every number for Samsung in both their pamphlet and on the Comcast website and haven't been able to get any one of them to work, nothing for power or volume. Has anyone gotten this to work, or know of any other codes I might be able to try?? I'm trying to keep from having to use two remotes, one for volume and the other for everything else.

Thanks, Steve

Your remote doesn't have a compatible code. But the $15 RCA RCRP05B does (AUD 1295, 1500 or 1868 which is NECx2 67.83). Here are all the corresponding individual function codes:

000090
100169

Thanks for the quick reply!! That remote looks like the best thing to get. I was worried about getting a universal thinking I would loose most of the functionality of the DVR, but this seems to have everything I need. I'll look into getting one of these maybe tomorrow, is there a better model of this remote, or would this be the one you recommend?

There are about 30 current models with the code, but that's the best one IMO and the easiest to find. If you get the RCA, it needs to be that model exactly. Widely available at sears, best buy, walgreens, radio shack, etc. Your other devices the same codes as your current remote, which would be CBL 0476 for your DVR, IIRC. To find out what other codes you're using, follow the blink back steps in the manual programming instructions in the wiki link in my signature. That's also where you can get instructions for programming the individual advanced codes I posted. If you buy a JP1.3 cable, you can add any codes to your current remote as well as program the RCA from your PC and not have to deal with all those individual codes at all. HERE's the upgrade file your your device if you get a cable. With a cable you can make that $15 remote behave like a $200 remote.


For a complete list of compatible remotes, follow the Codes link in my signature then search one of the posted codes and click the number under the remote column in the results.


If you post the model number of your DVR, I can give you all the individual function codes for that too. UEI makes your cable remote and the RCA, so they use the same codes. But the RCA is newer and has the latest codes and more of them. It's also learning, has more advanced volume punch thru, device specific macros and more devices.

I have the same Samsung Home Theater, and same inability to find a code for my new cable remote, Insight Custom DVR M2167 by UEI. I've had other UEI remotes in the past & they didn't work on my HT-P38 either. This remote was made for a Multiroom DVR system, and the distinction from other models is that the "My DVR" button allows you to view a complete list of multiroom DVR recordings. The regular remote & the on screen icon will only display recordings from the 1 box. The RCA remote you referenced above sounds really cool & I was able to locate one! Are you aware if there are any function codes for the multiroom DVR function.


Thanks..

If I understand correctly, your new remote has the My DVR function already. So just learn it on the RCA, no need for a code. In most cases this is simply the MyDVR 00175 code already posted. You can also do a brute force search where you try every code from 00000-00255. Just tap the setup button followed by the code. The command is sent when you press the last digit. Takes about 15 minutes to try them all. If you find it, please post it.

You are understanding correctly. The new remote has the "My DVR" button just like the older models of the same Insight/UEI remotes. They claim that the My DVR button on the other models won't work the Multiroom function. When I find it I will be sure to post it here! Thank you..

Here's an fyi from Audiovox/RCA's customer support:


07/23/2012 12:28 AM

What are the differences between the RCRP05B & RCRP05BR models?


Response Kenneth Pittman via Email 07/23/2012 12:11 PM


Thank you for contacting us. The only difference is the packaging. The R stands for Red package. As far as the remotes, they are the same.


Sincerely,

Ken
