Programming Remote

I just spent about an hour last night and an hour today trying to get my remote programmed. I finally discovered that I had to point the remote control directly at the box and a very short distance to the Box. Then it let me select the language and move forward with the programming. I am surprised that the online chat person did not know to have me do this. I hope this helps other customers with the frustration of trying to set up their remote.

were you able to successfully pair the remote to the X1 box via RF (aim anywhere)?
