Need some help.

My Panasonic remote died for my Panasonic Viera 32" tc-32LX85.

I am trying to program my Comcast Universal Remote (Red OK Button) to control the tv.

There are two Panasonic codes 10650 and 11941. 11941 will only turn the tv on or off, 10650 seems to control most functions, BUT the ok/select button doesn't seem to work; consequently I can't enter any setup menus or change any functions.

Comcast is brand new, we were on basic antenna, and we now have a digital package with a box. I think I only need to access setup to re-run my channel setup so that I can set the TV to channel 3 or 4 (neither were stored as channels).

In a stunnign turn of events, neither Comcast nor Panasonic were any help whatsoever - I'm trying to either avoid buying a new universal remote alltogether (preferred!) or at least locate a reasonable one known to work well with my Viera tv.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Most people don't find Channel Lock to be stupid. The Channel Lock feature routes the Ch+/-, digits, and OK keys to the cable box, even when the remote is in TV device mode. The feature can be disabled, but most people actually want the Ch+/- keys to always go to the cable box.

So instead, do a keymove-- assign a function code to a key. In UEI remotes, when a key is pressed, the remote looks to see if a keymove has been defined, then if a macro has been defined, then for Channel Lock or Volume Punch Through, and finally the basic function assigned to the key. So the keymove gets priority.

Press TV,
Press Setup until 2 blinks
Enter 994 (2 blinks)
Press Setup
Enter 24885 (this is the EFC for OK/Select in 10650)
Press OK/Select
should get 2 blinks

Now with Channel Lock enabled, the Ch+/- keys will still control the cable, and when in TV mode, OK/Select will go to the TV.

I can confirm that this key remap worked on my Viera 42" TH42PX-80U

I have also found this wiki for the silver comcast remote very useful
