I need to control this new comcast cable box. Is there anyway of adding a new Ir Code to the Replay or using an existing one? Please help. My alternative appears to be to go and buy a cable box which will respond to the existing codes in the replay and then get a cable card and pay to have it installed.

I'm not sure what model number cablebox you have, but I would check out this thread and this thread...

It also depends on what model ReplayTV you have as to how easy it will be for you to add IR codes...

From your subject, what is an RP1 cable? Are you talking about a JP1 cable? Why would you want to change the remote? That doesn't help you record shows. In order to record shows, you have to configure your 5xxx with the IR blaster code to have IT change channels on your cablebox...

as far as I can see this STB has no files that cab be used to make a connection (IR). I would be happy to pay someone to get this done

Are you saying that it isn't any of the models that have files for them posted on AVSForum? Those two threads I posted have files for several different comcast STB models...

It appears that the new comcast/cisco/rng format for Ir is "xmp" that not one of the universal remote controls understand. I have not been able to find a univeral remote which will "learn" these signals or even includes the STB in their precoded signals. This is awful. Unless their is away to translate some standard replaytv ir codes to run this STB. My Replay is useles

I would try posting your question on AVSforum. They know a lot more about remote formats there...
