HelloCustomer welcome to Just Answer.

The scary part is when you say "new flat TV". It's uncommon to have a universal remote not able to control a TV if it's lot newer than the remote.

Comcast have many model of remote, can you identify it in those?

Are you asking the model of the comcast remote

Yes

It's called the comcast custom dvr 3-device universal remote. comcast was here yesterday and could not program it with the codes they had and recommended i go online and try to find a newer code

I had a power outage and got kicked off computer, it's back up now, are you still out there
Expert:  Martin replied 5 years ago.
Those are the same exact code i get here.

As that TV is made by Funai (like Sylvania also and Symphonic), you can also try those code (you may notice some are the sames):

Funai 10180, 10171, 11271, 11963

Sylvania 10054, 10030, 10171, 11271, 11314, 11963

You can also try the code search procedure for that remote, but if all this don't work, it mean the TV is too new for the remote model (they are pretty lazy about that issue, and greedy to not offer remote learning feature as standard).
