Remote use

I just had cable installed yesterday, after the Xfinity tech left, I needed to go o the store, I pressed the off button to turn the TV off and it wouldn't turn off. I have to go to the tv to manually turn off/on. Was the remote not programed to tun it on and off?

press the A button on the remote and select "remote setup" and go through the steps of RF linking (for voice and aim-anywhere) and then for TV setup for the remote.
