This is the general setup proceedings to a universal remote control. Direct Code Entry
Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then
release the SETUP button.
Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator
blinks, then stays lit.
Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry,
the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further
programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try
one of the other codes for your brand.
If you wish to get more setup codes, three digits, four
digits or five digit ones, check this link.

Setup code list and setup instructions to some popular model remote
controls are given. Select the 'Timeslide' option from the dropdown list
by the 'Sidebar' of the display
window. It will make search easy.
Hi. Are you wanting a Universal so that you control other components, or do you only need a remote for your RCA TV? If you want to go universal, I have found that Logitech Harmony remotes have never failed me. You can get the replacement remote for that model for around $20 + Shipping.
Comcast actually has several different remotes for their different set-top boxes and the remote codes aren't always the same. They list all of their current remote devices on the following page. If you click on view manual it will give you a list of remote codes.
The word from RCA technical support is that the remote for the L32HD31R operates on a different frequency and there is currently NO universal remote on the market that will work with the set. They say that they have plans to market a universal remote and that they are working with other manufactuers of remotes but there is no resolution or time frame available. In short, you will have to use two remotes and keep checking the RCA website for a breakthrough.
I'm not sure that I would have bought the TV if I'd known.
The Model L32HD31R, according to RCA, is not "code compatible". It cannot work with a universal remote, or cable/satellite remote. this is peculiar for a company like RCA, however I just bought the same model from Wal*Mart, and companies build models for certain stores. This one was built on the cheap, and one of the things left out of the mix was the "code compatibility".
