How To Program Your Xfinity X1 Remote Control

Pair Your XFINITY Remote to Control Your XFINITY X1 TV Box

Your XFINITY remote can be paired with XFINITY X1 TV Boxes, allowing you to control the TV Box even when it is placed out of sight, such as in an entertainment center or in another room (up to 50 feet away). XFINITY remotes can be identified by the model number on the back panel or within the battery compartment of the remote.

Note: Once your remote is successfully paired with a TV Box, it will not control any other TV Box until paired with the other TV Box. XFINITY remotes can only be paired with one TV Box at a time.

If you’re tired of fumbling with multiple remote controls, you might want to consider something like the Control4 SR260 universal remote control.  It can handle your cable box, television, home theater system, even your lights.  You can learn more about it on the smart home page.
