XFINITY Remote Codes

Did you know you can use your Comcast remote to control most of your entertainment equipment? All you need are the correct XFINITY remote codes.

Most of the remotes provided with your Comcast XFINITY cable box are universal remotes. Which means that you can control not only the cable, but also your TV and a third device such as your Blu-ray or home theater system.

Programming your TV

Your remote probably came with instructions, but like most of us, you have no idea where you put them. That’s not a big deal. There are two ways you can program your remote the first method is by knowing the code for your equipment.

Each manufacturer has a set of codes which can be used to program remotes to work with their equipment. If you don’t know the code, you can look it up by going to the Comcast Remote Code website and entering your equipment information near the bottom. Many manufacturers will have several codes, so write down all of them.

Programming XFINITY Remote Codes

With a Code

  1. Turn on the TV and digital cable box.
  2. Press the “TV” button on the remote.
  3. Press and hold the “Setup” button until the “TV” button flashes twice.
  4. Using the numbered keypad, enter the first number you looked up and the “TV” button should flash twice, again.
  5. Press the “POWER” button. If the code entered is correct, the television should turn off. If the code didn’t work, then go through the steps again using the next code in the sequence until you find one that works.

If you still don’t have a code that works, don’t despair, we’ll show you how to find a code that works on your own.

Without a Code

  1. Turn on the TV and digital cable box.
  2. Press the “TV” button on the remote.
  3. Press and hold the “Setup” button until the “TV” button flashes twice.
  4. Using the numbered keypad enter 9-9-1 and the ‘TV button should flash twice.
  5. Press 1 and the “TV” button should flash two more times.
  6. Press the “POWER” button, then the “CH+” button if the TV turns off then press the “Setup” button and the code has been saved.

If the TV does not turn off, then repeat step 6 until it does.

Remote Variation

There are going to be some variations in different model of remote controls. Some units have a ‘Set’ button instead of ‘Setup’. On some remote units there is an “All Power” light instead of the buttons that light. If you have one of these units then it still very similar except that you will press and hold the ‘Setup’ button until the light changes color from red to green. After you have entered the code, the green light will flash twice.

Programming Other Devices

Now that you have your TV programmed it should be no problem to program in another device. You follow the same basic steps, but you use your XFINITY remote codes to program a different button.

With a Code

If you have a code, then simply follow the same procedure as programming it for your television.

  1. Turn on the TV and digital cable box.
  2. Press the “AUX” button on the remote.
  3. Press and hold the “Setup” button until the “AUX” button flashes twice.
  4. Using the numbered keypad, enter the first number you looked up and the “AUX” button should flash twice, again.
  5. Press the “POWER” button. If the code entered is correct, the television should turn off. If the code didn’t work, then go through the steps again, using the next code in the sequence until you find one that works.

Without a Code

If you do not have a code then there is one variation. Instead of pressing “1″ in step 5, you will be pressing a 2 or 3 depending on the device. If you are programming the remote to operate a DVD, Blu-ray or VCR you would use a “2,” for audio equipment you would use a “3.”

  1. Turn on the TV and digital cable box.
  2. Press the “AUX” button on the remote.
  3. Press and hold the “Setup” button until the ‘AUX’ button flashes twice.
  4. Using the numbered keypad enter 9-9-1 and the ‘AUX’ button should flash twice.
  5. Press 2 (for a video player) or 3(for audio equipment) and the ‘AUX’ button should flash two more times.
  6. Press the ‘POWER’ button, then the ‘CH+’ button if the programmed device turns off then press the ‘Setup’ button and the code has been saved.

Volume Control

Once you have programmed the remote to turn your devices on and off you can also program the remote to control their volume. By default volume control is for the television only and will not work with your other devices.

To set the volume control to work with your auxiliary device follow these simple steps;

  1. Press the “AUX” button.
  2. Press and hold ‘Setup’ until the “AUX” flashes twice.
  3. Using the number pad enter 9-9-3, then press the “VOL key. “AUX” should flash four times.

The volume and mute buttons should now control the volume on the device you programmed as your auxiliary.

These simple steps to programming your XFINITY remote codes should serve you well as you try to control other devices. If you don’t get service through Comcast, you can also check the remote codes articles for Charter, Time Warner Cable and Cox.
