Hi...

My old comcast remote broke...one that used 4 digit programming codes...and they replaced it with a remote that uses 5 digit codes.

The old one worked just fine with my Dream System DAV-FX80, but the new remote does not have any commands for it. I'm just looking for volume controls and power on/off.

I've read around and don't really understand the concept of discrete codes and how to use them or even if they're applicable.

Any help or links would be appreciated!

Thanks!

1. aux
2. press and hold SETUP for two blinks
3. enter 9 9 3

Hi Edmund.

Thank you for your response. Unfortunately the remote would not accept the 31658, as it did not blink twice when entered. Any other thoughts?

Then you out of luck sorry. Only UEI made remotes have the dream system code, and that being 31658. Time for a aftermarket universal?

Yes it looks like I'm going to have to go that route, as my wife is not likin' the idea of having 2 remotes, with one just for controlling the volume.

Thanks again..

Discretes don't apply here because of the type of remote you're using. They are for a totally different animal.
We can't give you a good answer, or maybe any, without the make and model of everything.
