Most cable and satellite providers allow consumers to obtain free remote control codes for their products on their websites, including DIRECTV, Verizon FiOS and Comcast. GE offers free codes for its remote controls at JascoProducts.com.
To find the remote control code for a DIRECTV product, users visit the Remote Control Code Lookup section of the website. They then select the category of the device, the brand name and the model number.
Verizon FiOS customers visit the Remote Control Setup and User Guides portion of Verizon.com, and then select their remote.
Comcast customers visit Xfinity.com, and then select the type of remote they have from a list of pictures.
People with GE remotes must locate the model and version sticker on the back of their remotes, and then download a list of specific version instructions for the codes.
