I have an Insignia 46" TV (model NS-461780A) with a Comcast remote (model M1067 - silver remote with red ok/select button). I have tried various codes and the only ones I can get to work will control the Power and Volume buttons, but will not control the Input button (when I push the Input button, the only thing that happens is the little "no" sign (red circle with a line through it) appears in the middle of the screen. Insignia's response is that the Comcast remote is only made to control the basic buttons, not advanced features like Input. Obviously, this is not true, or there would not be an Input button. My mom has the same remote and the input button works fine on her LG TV. I know that the Comcast remotes have individually programmable buttons and advanced codes are needed to program the buttons. Can anyone tell me the code for the Input button, or give me any solution, aside from keeping the Insignia remote out just for the Input button?


The code must be 5 digits. The ones that work for the remote to control Power and Volume are 10463, 11463, and 11780.

I believe that these are the only two setup codes that will control your TV --11780 doesn't exist.

Try a few of these EFCs. To test (before semi-permanently assigning), use setup code 10463 or 11463. While pointing the remote at the TV, enter the 5 digit EFC. When you enter the 5th digit, the IR signal will be sent. Assuming that these EFCs do work, you can assign the EFCs to buttons using the 994 command (single device mode). I expect the digit buttons already send the correct signals.

Wow! It totally worked! Thank you so much. I have spent all day trying to figure this out, with no help from Insignia or Comcast. Both the 10463 and 11463 codes work (aside from the Input key), and using the 994 command with code 00248, I got the Input button to work also! Perfect!!

I had to go read a little on here at hifi-remote(dot)com/wiki/ to understand

but eventually I got it to change the input!!!!


I love you mister 3fingerglove. I-love-bacon-I-love-you!

How do we get this out there more so people like me can find it a lot sooner & easier?

Thanks for this! Worked like a charm. I don't see the code for the VGA button in your post, though. It's not a big deal, since I can get there with the input button and the arrow keys, but it would be nice.

Can you please describe how to add efc like input. I tried pressing TV, then setup and hold until red light blinked, then entered 00248. Nothing happened. So I held input and then setup until it blinked and put 00248 then my input worked. But when I pressed on input again it didn't work. How do I make the efc functions stick?

  1. TAP a DEVICE button (eg, TV)
  2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
  3. TAP 9 - 9 - 4.
  4. TAP the SETUP button
  5. TYPE the 00248
  6. TAP the regular button (input) - two Blinks
Thanks all for info. I was able to bring up the input window after following the steps but using the red ok/select just brings up the xfinity guide, it doesn't select the input. If you wait though it will change over to the highlighted input however.

Similar Problem

I have an Insignia 39" TV (model NS-39L700A) with a Comcast remote (XR5 v4-R). I have tried many codes but only found one that the input button works (12264). When I press input the input menu pops up but I can not scroll through the options. The arrow keys only signal the cable box. I have looked for the efcs I need for the arrow buttons but nothing I found has worked. Any help would be appreciated.

Multiple presses of Input doesn't change the options?

Unfortunately this is a modeless remote with virtually no customization possibilities, so not much can be done. We could make an older Comcast remote work the way you want. They're about $5 on ebay, or Comcast might exchange yours for free. You would lose the voice control, but everything else would work better. Post back if you get a different remote and we can get it going.
