Operating Roku Player with Comcast Remote.

Postby StormnMormon » Wed Nov 25, 2009 2:00 pm

Hello everyone. I've taken my roku player home for the holidays to show off to my parents, who are considering buying one, as well as giving a few as big gifts this year for christmas. However, of course, I forgot the remote for the player. However my parents have a comcast remote that has a space for an "auxilary" device. It's the type where you program it with a manufactorer code. Does anyone know what the code is? Many thanks and happy thanksgiving!

I don't think you can. At least my Cox Cable remote doesn't work with it.

There are remote apps for the iphone or ipod touch if you have one.

I checked the user manual for comcast and no code is listed for Roku (not really surprising.) Do you or anyone with you have an iphone? They have an app which will control the box that is free right now.

EDIT: cfaulkingham beat me to it :lol:

I was going to say it would probably be easy to write a desktop app real quick. However it looks like some already did.

My Comcast remote has a learning mode for devices you can't find the remote code for.
Look in the user guide or the Comcast cast website.
I was able to use it to setup a speaker bar.
