FAQ: Comcast Xfinity X1 IR codes available?

We have been receiving some questions about the Comcast Xfinity X1 settop box with XR11 voice-activated remote control. We have determined that this remote uses both RF and IR, and you may need to some additional steps to learn the codes and get the X1 working with a Global Caché IR device. 

See the correspondence from the customer below, and the HEX codes at the end of this post.

Have been trying to learn the X1 remote IR codes (Itach Wifi). Only a couple work. Those are the codes to power off/on and volume control you can assign to a TV or receiver. All other buttons such as the guide and xfinity button don’t learn. Also unsuccessful is the available Irule Comcast/Xfinity discrete IR code database. None of the codes work. 

The X1 box does not have the possibility to connect to the local network so only way to control it is through IR.

On the X1 Entertainment Operating System main set-top box or Player, the
XR11 remote control with Aim Anywhere control (RF capability) has no
input for an IR receiver.
The XR11 when paired with the X1 allows for:

* TV power, volume, muting, and input control - IR only
* Audio device power, volume, and muting control - IR only
* All Power button to turn your receiver, TV, and audio device on at
the same time, and turn off TVs and audio devices

However when you remove the pairing the XR11 communicates through IR and
allowed me to learn all buttons except voice cmd. I am able to use iRule
now to control the X1. Am still learning all buttons but so far so good.

Note.

You can pair the XR11 again to use RF together with iRule.

    Hello Kimberlee,

    You can convert any of the HEX codes to GC format using iConvert, which is found on our Downloads page here:

    I see [REVERSE] [FORWARD] and [REPLAY] but is there a skip forward code?
