    Do not see a model no# on remote. Comcast has two types of remotes, I have the universal

    model, with comcast written in black letters at the bottom of remote. Hope that helps.

    Universal remote red/ok is the comcast remote I have.

    Universal red/ok is the model I have from comcast.

  • midway_mike Nov 08, 2010

    I contacted comcast this morning and went thru the same steps with comcast and it did not

    work. So I know that recommendation you are giving me will not work.

  • midway_mike Nov 08, 2010

    I contacted comcast this morning and went thru the same steps a dozen times and did not

    work. They told me to contact protron, and now is the same steps that don't work.

    Sorry there is no code for the protron TV. The only way to see if the remote will work for your tv is to try the code search. Here is how below.


    Searching For Your Code

    If your home entertainment device does not respond to the remote control after trying all of the codes listed for your brand, or if your brand is not listed at all, try searching for your code.

    For example, after trying all of the codes for your TV, you still cannot get the remote control to operate your TV, then:

    1. Turn on your TV.

    2. On the remote control, press
    TVonce. Then press and hold Setup until the TVkey blinks twice, then release Setup.

    3. Enter
    9 - 9 - 1. The TVkey will blink twice.

    4. Press and release the digit
    1. The TVkey will blink twice.

    Note: Substitute
    1 with 0 if searching for a Cable code, 2 if searching for a DVD, VCR or PVR and 3 if searching for an Audio device

    5. Press
    Power and aim the remote control at the TV and press CH + one or more times until the TV turns off.

    NOTE: In the search mode, the remote control will send IR codes from its library to the selected device, starting with the most popular code first.

    6. Press
    Setup once to lock in the code.The TVkey will blink twice.

    7. To search for the codes of another device, repeat steps 1 to 5, but substitute the AUX key for the device you are searching for.

    If you need the manual you can get it oan the link below.

    Good Luck

    The only comcast remote that supports the proton tv is the one with the grey/ok button. Contact comcast to see if they will send you that remote to use with the TV.

    Sense the red button remote will not work there is nothing you can do to set it to the Tv.


  • Jyackle5
    Jyackle5 Nov 08, 2010

    You can try thease codes though.

    0178, 0003, 0466

    Sorry there is nothing we can do then the remote will not support your Tv. You will need to replace the remote with the grey/ok button one or you will need to get a universal remote that will support the Tv, and the cable box.

if you bought a new rca tv, the codes have changed. until the cable companies catch up, you will need to use the remote that came with our tv AND the remote that came with your comcast box. Or, you can buy a LEARNING UNIVERSAL remote. this is different than a regular universal remote.

Remote code

Post the model number of the comcast remote. It is usually on the bottom side of the remote, however it could be buried under the battery cover. Then I can get you the manual for the codes.

Code for Vizio tv

I contacted Vizio the other day. They tell me that they use the same generic codes as LG. I have Suddenlink Cable, formerly Charter, so I still use the Charter remote. My remote only needed 3 digits and I have noticed that many need 4 or 5. I can tell you that the LG code worked for my tv. I can power on/off, volume, and change the channel. All other functions require the manufacture's remote. The code I used is 005. There was also 004 but that did not work on my tv. Hope this helps someone!
