Comcast cable box, remote manuals and wiring diagrams

If you’re a Comcast cable subscriber and you’re wondering how to program the cable box remote to control your TV or other devices, the above page has the info you need. (Chances are the cable company didn’t give you a manual to the remote).

If you have the newfangled grey remote with the On Demand button, this is the page is for you. You can setup the remote to adjust the volume and mute your TV.

Wiring diagrams are also available for using your VCR, DVD, TiVo, RF modulator or other devices with the cable box.
