Re: i can'get my remote to do any thing except turn up the volume

Funny, my remote does everything BUT control the volume.  I have the Xfinity XR2 remote paired with my LG TV.  Channel UP/DOWN works but Volume UP/DOWN doesn't.  Most other buttons work fine, but somehow the Xfinity remote doesn't control everything on my TV connected to my cable box.  What model remote do you have and what model TV?

when this happens try rebooting (pull power plug for 30 seconds) the set top box. if that doesn't fix it try new batteries.

You still have the XR2 remote? You should upgrade to XR11 or XR15. XR2 is now  outdated.

XR2 is not outdated, it’s the remote now used by Legacy equipment

I have X1 service.  Not sure what the OP has.
