Control Your Surround Sound Volume with Xfinity/Comcast Remote: A Step-by-Step Guide

So, you’ve just got your hands on a brand new surround sound system, and you’re ready to dive into a world of immersive audio. But wait, how do you get your Xfinity or Comcast remote to play nice with the volume controls? No worries, folks! We’ve got you covered. This guide will walk you through the process, step by step, and before you know it, you’ll be adjusting the volume from the comfort of your couch. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Identify Your Surround Sound System

First things first, we need to figure out what kind of surround sound system you’re working with. There are two main types:

  • Receiver-based systems: These bad boys have a central receiver unit that all your audio and video components connect to. The receiver then sends audio out to your speakers.
  • Soundbar-based systems: These are the simpler cousins. They don’t need a receiver. Instead, they have a single soundbar that houses all the necessary audio components.

Once you’ve got that sorted, we can move on to the next step.

Step 2: Hunt Down Your Remote’s Setup Code

To get your Xfinity or Comcast remote to control the volume on your surround sound device, you need to find the correct setup code. This code is a four-digit number that’s specific to your device. You can find the code by:

  • Heading over to Xfinity’s Remote Setup website
  • Punching in the manufacturer and model number of your surround sound device
  • Following the on-screen instructions to find your setup code

Step 3: Program Your Remote

Now that you’ve got your setup code, it’s time to program your Xfinity or Comcast remote. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Fire up your surround sound device
  2. Press and hold the “Setup” button on your remote until the LED light on the remote turns green
  3. Punch in your setup code using the number keys on the remote
  4. Hit the “Power” button on the remote to turn off the surround sound device
  5. Press the “Vol+” button on the remote to turn on the surround sound device and verify that the volume is working

If the volume works, you’re golden! If not, rinse and repeat the process with a different setup code until you find the one that works.


Setting up your Xfinity or Comcast remote to control the volume on your surround sound device is a piece of cake. Just follow the steps we’ve outlined in this guide, and you’ll be enjoying your new surround sound system in no time.
