Controlling the TV power and volume is probably all you'll be able to do with that control. The Comcast remotes are meant to be used with their converter boxes, and normally people want to change channels on the box while the TV stays on the box output channel (usually 3, sometimes 4). The remote's channel up and down buttons and number keypad only send out the codes recognized by the converter box. You'll need to fall back to the TV remote if you want to control more than power and volume.
If you can program a Comcast remote or another universal remote that has an info key, you can get rid of it. I just succeeded in programming my comcast remote thanks to Dave Taylor: http://www.askdavetaylor.com/how_to_program_comcast_cable_remote_control.html
Once the remote is programmed, hit the "info" button and watch your frustration disappear!
Most univ. remotes have a search mode if code entry won't work-
Do you have the comcast instructions ? Something like.....
1) Tv power on
2) Push set-up or program on remote
3)Touch tv button on remote
4) Point remote at TV and push power off. Repeat until TV turns off.............then
5)Push enter to save....
