Cable connection

I use my spare cable box from one room to another but Everytime I do so all the cable boxes I have won't connect to live TV except the main box last time it did this I spent 5 hours on the phone with Comcast to connect and they ended having to send out a tech by the time the tech got here (the next morning) all boxes were turned on and i got billed for it. Any suggestions on what I can do without paying for another tech guy??

how many X1 set top boxes do you have and the model numbers of them? It sounds like you need some of the small boxes (at least one) changed to an xg2.
