Hi , I`m Jack and I will be helping you today
Please note that I am an independent tech. that depends on your positive rating to get paid by this website and I have no control over the phone (or other) offers , they are sent by the website ,not by me but let me know if you`d rather do this on the phone.
That being said , a few questions coming up ;

Are you saying the comcast remote operates the volume but no sound is produced ?

Did the tv`s own remote quit at the same time as the sound ?
