XR15 Remote & Pioneer VSX-820 Receiver

I just came back to Xfinity cable TV. I installed my cable box and the XR15 remote but I couldn't get it to pair with my Pioneer VSX-820 receiver to control volume.  The setup program was really much improved from the last time I had cable TV but none of the 7 or 8 codes they suggested worked.  Is there any workaround for that?

Have you tried to manually pair it, since none of the codes work?press A &D and press 992 and ch. up and see if your receiver turns off

Did you ever get your problem to work?  I have a Pioneer receiver and have the same issue.  Tried all the codes they gave me.  Can't get xfinity remote to control sound or input.  I would be thankful if you told me how you fixed this issue.

I hope after all this time you solved your problem, but if not maybe this will help. On a web site called directutor.com I found 4 codes for Pioneer receivers: 31023, 30014, 30531, 31384. I have the Pioneer VSX-823 and the first of these 4 codes worked for me. I suggest you ignore the codes that Xfinity prompts you to try, and try these 4. Good luck.
