Sleep Timer?

Is it possible to set a sleep timer with the new X1 cable box and remote? With the older setup I could select TV on the remote and set the TV to turn off in increments of 30 minutes up to 3 hours. I so far have been unable to figure out how to set a sleep timer with the X1 remote and cable box.

The sleep timer is more of a tv function, there’s nothing like that on X1 boxes

Agree Mike. I used to be able to speak into the remote and say something like “ set sleep timer for 60 minutes” and the xfinity sleep timer screen would pop up. It doesn’t do it anymore though? Or maybe I’m not saying it correctly?

you would need your TV's remote to set a sleep timer.
