    I need to use two different remotes in order to watch VIZIO TV.
    First, Vizio remote to power on the TV, then Comcast remote for signal.
    Vizio remote for volume/sound, Comcast remote for channel to choose

    If I get in confusion, it takes awhile to get a right channel, even only blurry screen that makes me quite frustrating to say the least.

    Just wonder whether there is a more easy way for me to watch the TV?:confused:

    I just replaced the Vizio remote that came with my TV because it was only able to control the TV. The replacement remote, also a Vizio, controls my Samsung Blu-Ray player, Cable box [Don't use a box], & Audio [Don't use it either]. I was tired of constantly swapping the TV remote for the DVD remote. Anyway, Amazon.com had a pretty good selection of Vizio remotes to select from. Just had to locate the ones that were compatible with the model # of my TV.
    You might also consider having a look at the Harmony line of remotes by Logitech.

    The Comcast remote should allow you to change the volume of the TV. Have you tried pressing the TV button on the Comcast remote, and then adjusting the volume using the buttons on it? Did the Comcast technician who installed your box help you set up the remote? If not, they'll probably help you if you call them.
