I recently went digital with Comcast Cable. I followed the directions to set up the cable box and program the remote. The setup codes that Comcast gave me for Symphonic TV's are 10180 and 10171. When I programmed in 10180, the remote did not control the TV at all. When I programmed in 10171, something strange began. When I push the "All On" button on the cable remote to turn on the cable and the TV, both come on as expected. When I push "All On" (or use the "sleep" timer on the remote), power to the TV does not go off. The TV APPEARS to be off but there is still a faint light emanating from the screen and a buzz can be heard. If I push the power button on the TV or on the TV remote, the TV turns off. If I try to turn on the cable and the TV when the TV is in this "sleep" mode, the cable comes on and the TV turns off! So then I have to power up the TV separately.
I asked Comcast for help and they were NO help whatsoever. Can you advise me.
Re: TV Will Not Turn Off With Digital Cable Control
The remotes you get from the cable company are universal and kinda cheap. ive ran across this multiple times but since i dont know what model remote you have the only advice i can give is that the code you used is not the right code if it doesnt do all basic functions (on,off for the tv,volume)its just the wrong code if the codes you stated are the only ones available the book you got with the remote should explain how to run an auto scan.hope i was some help

If the facility is using just standard analog cable, it should be fine. Just turn the TV on and go through the setup menu and let the TV autoprogram itself to find and program into memory all active channels
If your using digital cable it will only record channel 3 or 4 depending on what your cable box is set to...In order for it to record different channels it needs a cable source plugged directly into it. You will only be able to record standard cable channels 1-125. If it's digital cable forget about... you can only record it with channel 3/4 a solution to this would be using a 2nd digital box.. "auto-programming" may be limited even with a 2nd cable box. If your only using standard cable 1-125... you can use the TV/VCR button it will switch between the tuner of the TV & VCR allowing you to record while you watch a different show... keep in mind this won't work for digital channels which if I'm not mistaken comcast has already converted all channels to digital even basic.
Hello, I am not with Comcast, but rather a much smaller family owned cable company. You can check the user settings of the box to verify it is in the HDMI mode. Depending on what type of HDDVR you have that is.
For Motorola 62XX and 64XX models follow these steps to check.
1. make sure that your HDMI cable is connected to both the TV and the cable box. 2. Turn TV on, and verify it is on the proper input. 3. Turn cable box off. 4. Press menu button on remote or front of cable box. 5. A user settings menu will appear on the screen. Note: if it did not appear you may have to connect another type of cables to continue. 6. Information displayed should be set to what your TV set is capable of. Most HDTV's will be set to the following: 16:9 1080i 480i 7. If you see additional HDMI settings as the forth item your TV and cable box are communicating across it, if not try unplugging both the TV and cable box and/or replacing the HDMI cable. Enter the additional settings by pressing the right arrow on the remote. 8. Change DVI to HDMI. 9. Press power to exit the user settings menu. 10. Turn cable box on, and switch TV to HDMI input if not already on it and see if the picture is coming in now.
Note: if you think that you messed up in the user settings you can always restore default settings by following steps 1 through 4 then press up arrow once and right arrow once.
I hope this helps you cable customers, as we appreciate your business unlike Dish and Direct!
U have paid cable, u don't need the converter box.Not even the analog tv require the coverter box, if u have paid cable or satalite tv or telicom signal.All ur tvs is hook up to the Comcast Cable correct?That all u need not, require the converter box.
This low audio problem happened to me suddenly yesterday. I powered off over night - no change. I plugged the A/V cables into a second TV - no change. I called Comcast - problem solved. Tap these buttons on the remote;
I am in Atlanta and have a
Panasonic DVR that was working fine and sometime during the past month
or so we lost the channel listings. I've tried many resets as well with
I called Comcast tonight. The agent helping me
took a long time to research the issue and gave me this answer (which
sounds reasonable). By the way, this is for the Atlanta area and may
not be applicable to other areas of the country.
Due to delays
in the conversion to broadcast digital and the fact that Comcast is
experiencing bandwidth issues, they have digitized the "channel
listing" signal. By mid-June Comcast's signal will be all digital and
you won't be able to watch a TV connected directly to Comcast cable -
regardless of whether it has digital or analog tuner (or both). This is
contrary to what I'd heard before.
After mid-June, you'll either
need to use a cable box OR what she called a "Digital Transmitter
Adapter" (let's call it a DTA). Prior to being converted to "full"
digital, you'll get notification from Comcast. She said I'd be able to
get 2 DTAs at no charge (I currently have one Comcast HD DVR box).
Additional DTAs would be $1.99 a month. DTAs will only provide access
to the "basic" cable channels, but the good news is that the Panasonic
DVR should be able to obtain its channel lineup through this DTA box.
