Comcast remote and Vizio tv

Jan 12, 2016 2:59PM PST

Upgraded my tv this year to a Vizio 4K smart tv from a Sony. Third component is a Sony receiver DVD combo. With the old Sony tv, my comcast remote would communicate with the Sony tv and receiver to control volume up and down and mute. now, the remote still communicates with the tv and receiver to turn on/off the mute, but will only turn the volume down but not up. Thoughts? This is taking some of the fun out of my new purchase. I have the grey DVR capable Comcast remote.

Did you do a factory reset?

That cured my old issues with the Comcast grey remote.

Bob's solution may cost more but can be really great.

Factory reset of the remote? Or do you mean a different component? Either way I haven't done that yet.

Many of these remotes are hit and miss

Look at the usual thing. Logitech Harmony Hub.

A universal remote. Will it work even with a 5 yr old mid priced Sony receiver?

(NT) Pretty likely. I think I've used it on 10+ year old things.
