does the TV's owner's manual say it is possible to use an IR remote? On another post IIRC the magic remote from the LG TV uses bluetooth or similar not IR.

I’ve tried all those things. Certain codes that the LG magic remote suggests will show the channels and the shows on the channels but the volume and the channel up-and-down buttons do not work. It’s like it doesn’t have the correct code for my cable box in the LG database.

I think we figured this out.  The magic remote needs to be closer/more direct line with the x1 box (not sure what the actual techology difference is). So, set up the remote with the remote in a very direct, close line with the X1 box.  Once we did that, we could change channels, and then you can experiment with the actual placement of the box.
