To program a Comcast remote to control a television, a user must enter a five-digit remote code. There are a four types of Comcast remotes, but the codes for every model are five digits.
As of 2014, there are four types of Comcast remotes: a silver remote with a red OK button, a silver remote with a gray OK button, the XR2 and the digital adapter remote. To determine the actual five-digit programming code, consult the user manual for the remote control. If the user manual is not available, consult the Comcast website to view programming codes. The website allows users to choose their particular remote and find the code based on the brand of the device they are syncing the remote to.
