Takena Schitt: The following does NOT work on XI. Adding a 30 second skip button.
If you have the newer version of the Comcast Motorola DVR, you can easily program a 30-second skip button that works both on pre-recorded shows and while you're in Cable mode and watching certain live TV events. Here's how to do it, thanks to CNET's Matt Elliott
Press the AUX button. Press and hold SETUP until you see the AUX button blink twice. Type in 01376. If you've done it correctly, AUX will blink twice again. Press AUX button. Press and hold SETUP again until AUX blinks twice, like before. Type in 994. Again, AUX should blink twice. Press (don't hold) SETUP. Type in 00173. Press the CABLE button. Now press the button you want to be the 30-second skip button. Make sure it's a button that doesn't have another use that you use regularly. When you do, the CABLE button will blink twice, essentially confirming you've changed its setting.
This method should work for most newer Comcast-issued DVRs, but if you still have one of the older ones with the silver remotes, our old trick should still work. Here's how to do it, if you need a refresher
Press the CABLE button at the top of the remote. Press and hold Setup until CABLE blinks twice. Type in 994. If you've done it correctly, CABLE will blink twice. Press (don't hold) SETUP. Type in 00173. Now press the button you want to be the 30-second skip button. Make sure it's a button that doesn't have another use that you use regularly. When you do,the CABLE button will blink twice, essentially confirming you've changed its setting.
Claudia Jacobson: THANK YOU!!!! You are a friggin genius! :) :) I just spent 2 1/2 hours last night with a Comcast rep who knew NOTHING, and at the end of the call, my volume STILL was not working. So, today I do a search, find YOUR awesome video and in like 3 minutes now, my tv volume is now connected with my Comcast remote. Thank you SOOOOOO much! You saved me hours of frustration today! :) Have an awesome day!! :D

3) go behind your tv and on the white sticker with big bold letters you'll see the brand of your tv
4) on the site scroll till you find your brand.
