How to program 30, 120... second skip (avs forum)
Hi-Remote forum users say: This remote, the URC-1068BG0 Comcast Remote, is a "no go" so don't waite your time with it. It's a "JP1.1" remote and we don't support those (not that we don't want to, we just don't know how). -- Note: Comcast also provides a "less" capable remote, the Comcast On Demand 3-Device (Without the bottom "Picture in Picture" set) DON'T GET IT as there are 4 less avaible buttons that you probably can benefit from, Also note that the lowest button is the "SetUp" button..
