    Tips to Keep in Mind When Synching Your Xfinity Remote

    Keep these tips in mind for a smooth pairing process:

    • Pair devices one at a time in this order: The order of plugging in is X1 box first then, TV and any other audio devices. It is wrong to try to match everything at the same time, matches are usually created, and conflicts appear.
    • Ensure that devices are connected to power and input(s)/outputs(s) before initiating the pairing process. It uses infrared technology to work which means that there must be a clear VDP or visual path between the remote and the device.
    • Note: As for the cable box IDs, please only input five figures. It can be noted that, when a user types in the full number, it does not allow the correct pairing to occur.
    • If it’s occurring consistently, try new batteries for the remote or change the position of the devices for better IR signal pick-up.
    • If your particular TV or audio output gadget is not connecting, then refer to the guidance book that came along with the Xfinity remote or visit the support page provided by Comcast.

    Given the information provided above, you have all the necessary information for configuring the Xfinity remote for your entertainment appliances. Interfacing with your home theater is fast and smooth because all the devices are controlled through your remote.
