try the voice remote for example say channel 48. do you see an error message on the screen? does the remote's LED change light 'blue' while speaking? if you say 'about' with the remote what is the remote battery level per cent shown?

Did you consider getting a new remote at your nearest Xfinity Store for free?

Re: Voice control not working

Yes I replaced the remote with another one in the house that was not being used and everything works fine now.  It's funny how  this started during a Comcast update...
