Android & Browser not changing TV

Android & Browser not changing TV

I'm hoping that I will have more luck through the forum than I had with the agent that I spent 45 minutes "chatting" with tonight.  I have two boxes, two tvs.  I have the Xfinity TV app installed on my Nexus 5, controlling my tv in my bedroom.  Testing the box results in nothing.  Channels do not change.  When I go online with my computer, I also get no response from attempting to change channels online.   It seems apparent that it is not communicating to the box at all...but I just couldn't get that across to the agent.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  

I am getting tv reception, and on demand works...so it seems that communication is working on some level.

Help is very much appreciated.
