Answering Machine

I have been using my home answering machine for a long time. Lately, when the phone rings, both my answering machine and Xfinity are answering at the same time.  People get a total scrambled message.  How can I stop this?  Thanks

Set the number of rings before Xfinity transfers the call to its system HIGHER than what your home answering machine is set for...   example:   Home Answering set to 4, and Xfinity set to 6 or higher.
