I tried using the codes 11523 and 10178, but no luck. I followed the instructions here on how to program it and the tv will accept the code and turn back on. However, after that it doesn't respond at all. I have an Element 47" Class LCD 1080p 60Hz HDTV, ELGFT471. My remote is the Comcast Universal
Remote - Red OK/Select Button. Any ideas?

When i did research on the matter i show that Element has 3 different codes Element 10178, 11523, 11178. Since i only saw two. i would try the ones that i just posted and let me know if any of those work.

No dice. I forgot to mention that when I got it to at least accept it I was using the auto-search code feature Comcast said to use, the 9-9-1, 1 then channel up search.

Sorry. But from everything I looked at one of those codes should work. I contacted Comcast and they gave me the same numbers that i gave to you previously. It seems the only as of right now wuold be to use the code search on the remote to get the tv working with the remote.
Just for a refresh...
For example, after trying all of the codes for your TV, you still cannot get the remote control to operate your TV, then:

I did not find a specific code for the Element but there was a way of programing it where you just kept pushing a button (I think channel up)until the tv turned off and it worked for me.

FYI, I couldn't get the remote to work for my newer Element TV until I updated the TV with the remote update for the TV found here: http://www.elementelectronics.com/remoteupdate.htm

Yes : I just wanted to point out that in the steps to automatically finding the codes, it was stated that for DVDs to hold down the TV button in step 2, whereas the pamphlet says to use the Aux button. I am actually hoping the pamphlet is incorrect in that I cannot get my DVD recognized by any of the suggested codes or by this automatic method. I can't find any schematics/ diagrams except for a basic cable hookup which does me no good. There is no information on what channel you need to be on to watch your DVD, if any one in particular is required, on this new Xfinity system [though i don't have the actual Xfinity advanced system installed]. And should you be in "cable mode" as I can't find a way to just be in TV mode. Does the A/B light have to be on, & if so, how does one go about keeping it on ?
Bottom line there is so very little info on getting a DVD player to work w/ a newer TV & Comcast system that I am about ready to disconnect the box from the TV & connect the DVD to the TV & just watch DVDs the "I-just- moved-in-and-don't-have-TV-service-yet-method" of entertainment ! And I did just move in and might as well not have TV service as far as trying to watch my DVDs as it is rocket science w/ a great element of guesstimating trying to figure it all out.
I can't even get,using this described method of automatice code-finding & locking, to get the lights to flash twice on the remote ! As my best buddy in the Marines always said, "it's gotta be me" !!!
