Why 2 receivers in self install kit?

I received a self install kit for my change from "TV only" service to TV+Internet. I have my own modem/router (ArrisSBG7580-AC). What confuses me is that the self install kit includes what appears to be 2 xfinity receivers. One is a small XiD-C model with remote and the other is a larger XG2v2-P with remote. I am connecting only one TV. Did they incorrectly send me a 2-TV kit or is there some other reason for having the two separate boxes?
