I have a Sony NSX-32GT1 and i LOVE the NSG-MR1 keypad remote. When i had dish, the remote could operate everything, including the guide, DVR, etc. I just switched to comcast, i went through the IR blaster setup for comcast, and tried the 6 different codes that it gave me. One of the codes does kinda work. It allows me to change channels and operate the guide, but the DVR button is nonresponsive. I cannot open my previously recorded shows whatsoever, but the record button does work. i can even pause play rewind... i can do pretty much everything but pull up the DVR page... anyone have a solution i havnt tried?

Thanks in advance!

Can you access the main menu? If so, you can access the DVR through that. A bit roundabout, but better than nothing.

Basically, most 'universal' codes on device remotes are relatively basic. They are just to get the most basic controls, most likely for just a plain box, not the DVR. With most of the Motorola boxes (I'm guessing that is what you have), the arrow keys do give basic transport controls.
