XR8 Adaptors

How are we, as Comcast customers, suppose to get these adaptors ( besides E-bay) if our market center doesn't have any? They have no xi3 boxes, no dta eyes,and my smart phone doesn't support the x1 remote app. I called in to 1800 comcast, and they can't give me any. How do we hide the boxes?

Re: XR8 Adaptors

You can do what I did along with many other members of this forum and that is forget about looking to Comcast for a solution on this and look at 3rd party remote solutions. The only time I ever use the Comcast remotes is when I am helping other people troubleshoot problems. Otherwise I never touch them. I have a nice assortment of Harmony and URC remotes around the house and they all have RF support or options for RF support. They are MUCH better remotes than the Comcast remotes and have vastly more capabilities.

Why shouldn't we look to Comcast? it's their equipment, they launched it with no eyes for the ir extender port, they should suppy the xr8 if they want our business. And they have no problem taking my $$$ every month!

Doug, yes of course.  I just looked up your account and in doing so noticed one of your boxes (called Master Bed) is having some pretty serious RF signal issues.  Can I help get a tech visit scheduled for you to resolve these issues?  Thanks!

Hi, I also need an adaptor to connect my Pace PR150BNC box with my XR5 v4 remote for aim anywhere funcionality.

Thanks.

Re: XR8 Adaptors

Thanks Neal, the unit called Master Bed appears to be working OK, although I experience a little audio jitter when skipping forward but that's about it. I probably need to reterminate the coax run to that TV, it's been recently moved/remodeled.

Hi Neal!

 

I just called Comcast to order 2 XR8s and was told they are no longer available as the current version has been recalled and new ones wont come out for a couple of months. What am I missing?

 

Can you ship me 2, please?

Re: XR8 Adaptors

I would very much appreciate getting at least one XR8.....although I have four total settop boxes (3 X1 and 1X1DVR.  One is in a cabinet so I desperately need the RF functionailty to work as Comcast has adveristed.

 

Seeking a solution for that problem led me (after about 3 hours of looking all over the Comcast universe) to this forum and this discussion.

 

I trust this forum is being monitored by Comcast and the aforementioned Neal, or someone, will help me get the device.

 

Contact me by email, if necessary, I can provide any additional information.

 

Thank you (and I promise to say nothing libellous about Comcast for at least 90 days if this works.)

 

David
