X1 Remotes

There are different remotes for our X1 boxes. This post is designed to give you information about these different remotes. 


  • XR2
    • Specifications:
      • Manufacturer: Comcast
      • Model Number: Comcast XR2 Remote
    • Overview:
      • The Comcast XFINITY TV XR2 remote will control Comcast TV boxes running the XFINITY TV on the X1 guides and Motorola Non X1 TV Boxes, and High Definition DTAs.


      • The remote is sleek and simple to use. There are fewer buttons so you can easily and quickly find the functions you’re looking for, and the buttons you use most often are easily accessible. Plus, the XFINITY TV Remote is smaller and easier to handle.

  • XR11
    • Specifications:
      • Manufacturer: Comcast
      • Model Number: XR11
    • Overview:
      • The voice remote from XFINITY is a voice-activated remote control that allows XFINITY X1 customers with a qualifying TV box* to find what they want faster by using voice commands to change channels, search for shows, get recommendations and more.
      • Customers can use their voice to quickly find their favorite content, tune to channels, and search and control their DVR.
      • The voice remote is supported by all X1 TV box models (except the RNG150N). The remote must be paired with the appropriate model TV box to enable the voice control functionality.
      • If the customer has 3D television, the customer will no longer be able to change the orientation of the guide using the XFINITY remote. Setting the TV back to 2D mode will return the guide to its normal orientation.
    • Benefits:
      • Voice control*
      • Backlit keypad
      • Aim Anywhere radio frequency (RF) pairing with X1 TV box* so that line-of-sight is not required (allows TV box to be placed in a cabinet or behind the TV and still be controlled)
      • Automatic pairing with X1 TV boxes and TV sets for control of volume, power and input (no pairing code needed)
      • Note: RNG150 TV boxes are not supported
      • Easy access to accessibility features like Closed Captioning and Voice Guidance
      • Updatable software - supports over-the-top updates
      • TV Input key, so you don't need to use your TV's remote control to change input
