go for it.

Which remote control are you using here?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
this should be simple- my old remote will work it fine. I do not wish to spend more on this new system since all the updated equipment should work at lease as the old!
Expert:  Nathan replied 3 months ago.

These things are not always simple or easy, it depends on the equipment involved.

What remote are you trying to program here? Is this for a cable or satellite remote? Which model? How many digits does your remote require (3,4, or 5)?

I cannot see why Comcast is charging anything me when I have followed all their instructions to the letter with poor results.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
why any charge when its Xfinity equipment? I have followed all remote setup instructions to no avail. BUMMER!
Expert:  Nathan replied 3 months ago.

Okay so you are talking about a comcast remote apparently.

To be clear, this is a paid support service, it is not free help.

This is also not comcast.

Comcast would not provide any help with remote programming, they don't support other manufacturers products.

Sony also would not help with this.
