i have a 20" philips tv CDV19BPH23 . have tryed many remotes. rca one for all direct big blue zenith comcast hughes. many will work volume and sound. but not the menu. the rca 5in1 brings up the menu with picture highlighted. but any attemtp using arrow buttons to navigate or select don't work. there's no menu button on tv. any advice.

Tell us which setup codes worked on the OneForAll and Comcast remotes. That will help us to guess the arrow keys.

one for all URC 4063 remote the code 171 turns tv on off + volume. the menu displays when that button is pressed, the only movement from pressing any arrow key is the game mode pops up and it can be set to on or off. the up and down movement of the selection arrow won't respond. the word picture is highlighted when you press menu button on remote. i tryed pressing enter and select but it dind't respond. i have the same results using the Directv Big Blue remote, using auto search. i have a rca rcu 800x remote i didn't try . none of the codes worked for the comcast.

Well, assuming that 171 is the same as 0171 in newer remotes, then this is Emerson protocol, device 41. But if that is true, then any silver Comcast remote should work using 0171
If the Comcast remote has a red Select/OK button use 10171 instead. For the red button remote, also try 11271.
Probably the RCA rcu 800 would work with 0188.
Please check these setup codes to try to verify if we have the IR protocol correct. If it is, there are a few codes we can try. At the worst, we can try all 256 combinations of the individual button codes and map out the TV.

the comcast turned on tv. it didn't respond to volume or channel . this remote does not have menu selection anyhow and that's what i need. the code for rca 800 did nothing.

I don't think you understand. If we can find out which protocol and device number your TV responds to, then we can assign an Extended Function Code to each button on the remote (nearly any of your remotes) so that the remote sends the correct IR signals to the TV to make it turn on/off Ch+/-, menu, etc.
It is much easier to do that if we are quite sure about the protocol and device number. It helps us to figure that out if you tell us which setup codes on which remotes get any kind of a response from the TV.
At this point, I think you have said that setup code 171 on a URC-4063 controls power and volume.
I think you have said that an unidentified Comcast remote, using an unmentioned setup code controls power but not volume. Please tell me if the Comcast remote has a red Select/OK button, and if it is silver. Actually, look at www.urcsupport.com/index.php
and tell us which picture most resembles your remote. Also tell us which setup code you used.
If the Comcast setup code was 0171 (or 10171 with a red button), then the results are hard to understand. For those setup codes, the 4063 and typical Comcast remotes send the same IR signals for volume and power.

Ah, Google tells me that this is actually a combo TV/VCR/DVD unit? In that case, the unit requires 3 different device codes. So here's some things to try.
Use your URC-4063 with setup code VCR 000. Make sure you're on VCR rather than TV. Check to see if any buttons work. If you have a silver Comcast, you can try that too, with Video 0000 or 20000 for the red button version.
You can also try the following EFCs.
To simply test one of these EFCs, press VCR (after assigning the setup code VCR 000)
For each code, press Setup and then enter in the 3 digit EFC. If using the Comcast remote, enter 5 digits--00 followed by the EFC.
device number 40 44 41
To assign one of these codes to a key, press VCR
1) Press and hold Setup until 2 blinks
2) Enter 994
3) Press Setup briefly
4) Enter the EFC either 3 digits (or 00+ the 3 digits if Comcast)
5) press the button you want this function assigned to.
shoud get 2 blinks

And, for VCR 000
device 40 44 41
vol+ 141 133 157
vol - 145 137 161
I think it would be a good idea to start your testing using volume, because wer already know it works using TV 0171. (If you want to test using TV 0171, the EFCs are 141 and 145)

completely confused. can you take this one remote at atime step by step? starting with one for all.

Start by using setup code TV 171 on the 4063 remote and pressing TV. Then:
1) Press setup
2) Enter 141. See if the Vol goes up when you press the last 1.
1) Press setup
2) Enter 145. See if the Vol goes down when you press the 5.
Assuming that works (it should), setup the VCR key for code 000, and press VCR. At this point, before doing the procedure listed below, you should try every button on the remote to see if the TV or VCR or DVD responds. Maybe you'll find that some of the buttons already work correctly.
Next, assuming that there are non-working functions:
1) Press setup
2) press 141 The volume may go up, or not.
repeat again with 133, and then 157. Maybe only one of these EFCs will work or maybe all three, but write down which EFCs work.
Now do the same thing for Ch+. From the big table above, you can see that the three EFCs to try are 109, 101, and 125. Again write down which ones work.
Do this for every function you want the remote to control. Probably you'll notice a pattern: for example, if Ch+ works using the middle column, so will Ch-. All the EFCs for the digit keys will come from the same column as each other. Same for the transport keys (play, stop, rewind, etc.) We will only need one working EFC for each function, so once you find one that works (and have written it down), you can go on to the next function.
If you find working EFCs, you can assign them semi-permanently to a button by:
1) Press VCR
2) Hold down setup until 2 blinks
3) Enter 994
4) Press setup briefly
5) Enter the 3 digit EFC
Press the button you want to operate this function.
Do this repeatedly for every function you need.

tryed the codes nothing responed. i did this with one for all ;press tv hold setup till light blink's twice enterd 171, pressed menu , menu pop's up ,picture is highlighted with arrow next to it i hit the up arrow and the game mode selection pop's up in off selection i hit down arrow it switches to on. this is the only movement i get in menu selection. could the tv be bad in this section?

Well, back in post #3, you said the 4063 volume keys would make the volume go up and down.
Pressing setup followed by 141 causes the remote to send exactly the same signal as if you had pressed the Vol+ button. But since you say that didn't work, it doesn't look like there is anything else to try.
