Question   The light on my X1 box keeps flashing. What does this mean?   Answer   Below you will find a list of our X1 boxes and what the lights mean. *Note**:   Only RNG150 and XG1 TV Boxes have LED displays. Other X1 TV Box models (Xi3, Xi4, XiD and XG2) only have one power light. RNG150 and XG1 TV Boxes Device Status Power Light/LED Activity Power save mode Off Loading/rebooting Power light solid; LEDs blinking Steady/no activity Power light solid Remote control activity Green LED flashes when button pressed Recording in progress Red LED solid     Xi3, Xi4, XiD and XG2 TV Boxes Device Status Power Light Power save mode Off Loading/rebooting Slow blinking Steady/no activity Solid Remote control activity Flaring     The "Loading/Rebooting"  status on our Xi3, Xi4, XiD and XG2 devices usually occurs after an update. To view more information about our X1 lights see here: https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/x1-led-display-guide     If you believe it may be an issue with your device, we recommend cleaning the device, ensuring it is in a well-ventilated area and rebooting the device (unplugging it from the wall outlet, wait 1 minute and then plug it back in). If you continue to experience this after rebooting the device and it occurs outside your Daily Update Time window you could also be experiencing low signal to your box or a defective device. You can test the outlet by connecting a different box there. If the issue persists with another box, you are likely in need of a technician visit. If you do not experience this issue with your other box, you likely need to replace the defective device. You can replace it by taking it to a local Xfinity store (find your local store here:  https://www.xfinity.com/support/service-center-locations/ ) or we can help you replace it by posting your request here:  https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Customer-Service/bd-p/CustServ_CustServ     To learn more about changing the time in which your update occurs see here: https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/TV/ANSWERED-How-to-change-the-Daily-Update-Time-on-your-Xfinity/ta-p/3236601

***Created by our Community***        I have had the RNG 150N cable box and the Xfinity XR2 remote. For only a short period of time, and I thought the box had a mind of its own, as several times, it had changed to Espanol, with the Video Descriptive Service mode being activated, [seemingly] without doing anything at all on my end.   By random chance, I had read, in a different forum, that the "D" button on the XR2 remote control for the RNG 150N cable box changes the Default Audio Track (so you don't have to press the red Xfinity Menu button to access the Main Menu).   It seems that since the "D" button is placed closely above the number "3" button, it is relatively easy to inadvertently/accidentally press that when pressing the number "3" button and hence the box would appear to be changing the Default Audio Track and activating the Video Descriptive Service mode.   Of course, simply pressing the "D" button again turns off the Descriptive Video Service mode and returns the Default Audio Track to English.  Case of the RNG 150N and XR2 Remotes with a mind of its own SOLVED!

Question   Today I discovered that local radio stations were no longer on my channel lineup. Recently I had local FM stations on my channel list. However today they were gone. I am wondering what happened to those channels?   Answer     We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you. We removed FM Radio from our line-up, because we no longer have the capability to carry it. We notified you about this change in your recent bills. You can find similar entertainment on X1 TV Apps like  Pandora, iHeart, Xite, and NPR one .   When doing a quick search on the iHeart Radio app on Xfinity X1 set-top boxes you will be able to find select local FM Radio stations.   For additional information on how to use the iHeart Radio app on Xfinity X1 set top boxes, see here: https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/TV/ANSWERED-How-to-get-iHeartRadio-on-Xfinity-X1/ta-p/3086212   **NOTE**:   You do not need to download anything or log into the iHeart Radio app to use this service directly on your Xfinity X1 set top box.   KQED Programming on iHeart Radio App For additional information about NPR One on Xfinity X1 boxes see here: https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/TV/ANSWERED-NPR-One-on-Xfinity-X1/ta-p/3237085     Frequently Asked Questions Why did this happen? Comcast regularly examines programs and channels in an effort to provide the best overall entertainment choices and content customers want the most.   I signed an agreement for my service. It's not fair to remove a channel that was included in the promotion. We know that it is upsetting to lose a channel that you like. Our promotional offers provide discounted pricing off of our services. However, we may rearrange or change programming, features or offerings that are a part of our services, even those that we provide under a promotional offer. We regularly evaluate our XFINITY TV to ensure it includes the best combination of programming options to appeal to our customers.

  Below please find some X1 boxes along with photos depicting where to find the IR Target Eye locations (notated in yellow square), as well as the manufacturer name, X1 Platform name and any pertinent notes. Important point: ALL X1 boxes (excluding the RNG150 models) can do both RF and IR.  For larger images of more information, please message me.   Below is the Samsung XG2, manufacturer model number (on the bottom of the unit) is SX022ANM   Below is the Samsung RNG-150N, manufacturer model number SR150BNM   Below is the Pacxe XG2, manufacturer model number PX022ANM. Please note, the target is small and will appear as a tiny triangle centered just below the face of the unit.   Below is the Pace XG1, manufacturer model number PX001ANM   Below is the the Pace RNG-150N, manufacturer number PR150BNM   Below is the Pace Xi3, Manufacturer model number PX032ANI.   Below is the Pace XiD, Manufacturer model number PXD01ANI .   Below is the Cisco XiD, manufacturer model number CXD01ANI     A few more important notes to remember regarding IR usage. First, all X1 boxes use the same IR codes. So, if you change from one X1 box to a different model X1 box, you will not need to change any IR codes in your third party remotes. Some boxes have different sensitivity concerns with the IR signal, but the codes are the same. Usually, you can adjust the sensitivity gain via your third pary control processor.    Second, you cannot use Legacy Box IR codes with X1 boxes. They will not work. The same goes for the reverse; X1 codes will not work with Legacy products.   Lastly, not all Legacy product IR codes will work across different Legacy products. Many will, but some will not.
