There are different remotes for our X1 boxes. This post is designed to give you information about these different remotes.
Model Number: Comcast XR2 Remote
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.
Model Number: XR5
The Comcast XFINITY XR5 remote will control Comcast TV boxes running XFINITY X1.
The XFINITY XR5 remote is identical to the XR2 remote; but with a LED backlit keypad.
It has a simplified, backlit button layout and can sense tilt, motion, inactivity and shock vibration.
Manufactured with high-end finishes, the XR5 remote contributes to a premium remote control customer experience.
XR5v3 & XR5v4
Model Number: XR5v3 & XR5v4
The XFINITY TV XR5v3 and XR5v4 remotes are now provided with all new X1 installations, regardless of the method of installation (professional or self-installation) or device type (XG1, RNG150N or Xi3).
The device functions in the same way that XR2 and XR5 remotes do
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.
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
