Hi jimvandy

Most yamaha codes will work some of your unit functions. try 0176 or 1176. These are for a dvr3 comcast remote. You can get the whole list and manual from here

I want my Comcast remote & Yamaha RX-661 to communicate??


30176 or 31176

I am guessing at what remote you are using, so the code may not work. If that is the case, go to the following link and pick your remote from the picture list.

No volume in Zone 2


Get the original Yamaha remote, go to Set menu, manual setup, speaker setup, and look for "extra speaker." it needs to be set to "zone 2." This is off the top of my head, so it should be pretty accurate. Get used to doing this, though, as this amplifier assignment to zone 2 is prone to resetting itself in those Yamahas.

Need a code for my Comcast Universal Remote


30176 is the code you need . Press Aux and then hold setup until Aux lights up. Enter code. If you want the remote to control the receiver all the time, press Aux and then hold setup until Aux lights up. Enter 993 then press Aux. Aux will flash, now press Cbl and Aux should light up when you use the volume.

Zone 2 volume control


Sounds like the Zone 2 amp was set to external, see below for instructions on setting it back up.
How do I setup Zone 2 on the RX-V661 Using the internal power amp.

Setting the RX-V661 remote control to operate Zone 2
1. Using a ballpoint pen or similar object and press the Code set
button. The Transmit indicator on the remote should flash twice.
2. Using the numerical key pad on the remote and key in 9992, the
Transmit indicator should flash.

You will now need to assign the receivers internal amp for Zone 2.

1. Set the remote control selector to AMP. Selector is on side of remote.
2. Press the Set Menu Button.
3. Arrow down to Manual Setup.
4. Press the Enter button.
5. Arrow to the Sound Menu option and press Enter.
6. In the Sound Menu arrow to Speaker Set and press Enter.
7. Arrow to the EXTRA SP ASSIGN and select ZONE2. This may require using LEFT or RIGHT arrow.
8. Press the Return button to exit out and return to the Manual
Setup.

Remote to control comcast, DVD and TV


The answer here is very simple, there are plenty universal remotes that can control any device and upto 10 devices. You can even record macro's with these, this means by simply pressing 1 button all your devices will switch on, select correct channels and volume and start playign or recording.

Just check Logitech website for Harmony or Philips for Pronto.

Comcast remote


The volume keys should be working by default, but you may have volume punch through turned on (meaning the remote is sending signals for TV or CABLE volume function no matter what mode you are actually on). To unlock volume control for AUX mode, do the following:
1. Press and release AUX
2. Press and hold SETUP until the remote blinks twice
3. Type 993
4. Press and release VOL-
The remote should blink four times to confirm unlock.

Setting up Cable with HDMI


Yes, the firmware on your hdtv box has an old firmware, I switched my old hdtv box with a newer one box and the problem was solved. It seems that it can't work if your hooking up with DVI to HDMI cable to your receiver to tv. Your hd box must have an HDMI out otherwise it causes problems. I also have rx-v661 and i finally hooked up everything HDMI to the receiver and then to the tv and it was having the problem you speak of. After I switched out the hd box for a newer one everthing worked fine.

Need codes for comcast remote to ilo tv


When programming your Comcast universal remote for your TV, the programming guide states that you should enter the 4-digit code provided for your equipment, and if you did it correctly, the TV button will blink twice.

What you have to do is put a "1" in front of your 4-digit code, making your code a 5-digit code. For instance, the code for my Panasonic is listed as 0250. I tried and tried. Then I entered 10250 and it worked perfectly the first time. I did it again to make sure I wasn't seeing things, and it worked.

Good luck.
