    My soundbar location is blocking my ability to power on my TV with both my Comcast remote and the Sony remote that came with TV. There isn't an option to move the soundbar. What are my options to turn this TV on with the comcast remote? TV is XBR750 purchased last month

    This is a UK-based forum.
    We don't have Comcast here but if it's remote can be programmed to operate various brands of TVs and sure it will be detailed in it's user manual.

    Ok, forget Comcast. And please see if you can answer the question. Is there any way to use my Sony remote or a universal remote to turn on my Sony tv if the front IR is blocked by my soundbar? Is there a way to use the IR blaster for the tv itself,
    and not just the components?
