Question about Projection Televisions
I need a working code for the Comcast remote with the Olevia 242T
SOURCE: I need a universal remote
Universal hand held remote controls for television receivers vary in price and functionality.
some features to look for in a universal remote
1. Is it well supported and documented on the internet
2. Are your devices listed in it's data base
3. Does it list devices you think you may use in the future.
4. Does it have a nice easy to read display
5. Does it have easy to read buttons
6. Is it dammage resistant
And how much you're willing to pay for those features.
Thats the past !
Now the other part of the story.
Television sets are fast becomming a thing of the past because of the internet
a person can easly use their PC to watch television by getting a Tuner Capture Card or USB tuner capture device.
How I watch television on my own computer
I use an internal PCI single tuner capture card made by eVGA nvida called the NVTV and a program called "MediaPortal" an open source alternative to Microsofts MediaCenter
eVGA NVTV single tuner capture card was made for Microsoft Windows Media Center Edition ONLY
"MediaPortal" supports NVTV single tuner capture card under Microsoft Windows XP since the core driver for the card also worked under Microsoft Windows XP or XP pro or ( XP HOME which I've not tested ) You should only need MediaPortal unless
1. you have an internal PCI tuner capture card and have no other solutions
2. have a situation like mine where you have a no longer supported tuner capture card
3. if you have totaly lost your television software that came with your tuner.
The next move for me is to buy a USB tuner capture device as soon as humanly possible.
Hope this information gets you going.

SOURCE: Comcast Remote Control Code
comcast sucks and its tech support are a bunch of idiots. the book that comes with the remote is wrong (and for some reason no one in tech support knows this). the remote requires 5 digit codes and all the codes in the book are 4. typing the number 1 in front of any of the codes in the book, for any device and manufacturer, should fix this problem.

If you have a digital converter, then you are only able to watch that converter on the input it is on. However you can split the cable before the cable box and run 1 side to the box and one side to the rf in on your tv

Unfortunately Olevia is one of those t.v. brands that is not compatible with many universal remote controls. They make a Universal Learning Remote specifically available from Olevia on their web site that may solve your problem if your universal remote control turns out not to be compatible with your Olevia television.
As for what codes you can try, there are many, and the codes depend on your universal remote control brand. Many times, an RCA code will work for Olevia televisions, so you should try the RCA codes that come with your universal remote first, before trying any of these other codes.
If you have a Dish Network Universal Remote you can use code 506 or 127.
Direct TV remote codes vary by model number on the remote control, but the following codes work with most Direct TV remotes: 506, 127, 11144, 11240, 11331, 11610
Cable Vision use code 506
Charter and Movie Box remotes you can use 1144 or 1178
Comcast codes are 11144, 11240, 11331, 21075, 10159, 10154, and 10088
Cox code is 1610
Brighthouse remote codes are 1610, 1144, 1240, and 1331
Time Warner remote codes are 1610, 1144, 1240, 1331, 432, and 1610
If none of these brands are what you are looking for as far as your Universal Remote Control is concerned, many universal remote controls will work with Olevia televisions if you use the codes found under the RCA, LG, Phillips, and Yamaha in the code listing included with your remote control.
