Use an IR Extender to Control Your TV Box Without Line of Sight


How it Works

If you want to keep your TV Box or TV Adapter out of sight and still use your remote control to change channels, you’ll need to use an IR extender or IR receiver. An IR extender or IR receiver is included with your TV Adapter equipment.

Not all of our equipment comes with an IR receiver. If your equipment didn't come with an IR extender, one can be purchased from a third-party retailer.

To use it, connect the IR extender to the IR In input on the back of the TV Box or TV Adapter. Put the other end of the IR extender somewhere that allows a direct line of sight between it and the remote.

If you have an Xfinity X1 main TV Box or Player, you can use the XR2/XR5 remote control with Aim Anywhere control (RF capability) even if they are stored in a closet or another room, up to 50 feet away. Your XR2/XR5 remote control must be paired with your X1 Player for this feature to function.

If your XR2/XR5 remote has not been paired to your X1 Player, see the instructions for pairing your remote and TV Box.

Notes:

  • Secondary X1 TV Boxes or Player Mini’s cannot be set up to use the RF capability.
  • With some TV Boxes, connecting the IR extender disables the RF input on the front of the TV Box.
    • To avoid this, disconnect the IR extender from the TV Box when you’re not using it.
