Yes.  Here is the trick!

Order of these steps is important:

1. Use the EasyMote QUICK SEARCH mode to program the CH+ and CH- buttons to work with the Xfinity cable box.

2. Use the EasyMote LEARNING Mode together with the TV remote to program the other 4 buttons on the EasyMote.  

 

Doing these steps in this order the EasyMote was programmed to work perfectly in less than 7 minutes.  

 

Xfinity should really provide a remote that works in this customer sector, but since they don't the EasyMote is good solution.  Be sure to follow the steps above in that order. 🐵

susan, thanks for your helpful response, but i decided not to order the easy remote as my wife decided tht she could get along with the xfinity x 1 remote.
