Sony Soundbar disconnects from remote after initial pairing

I am able to pair my xfinity remote to my Sony Soundbar but when I turn off the Soundbar with the remote the pairing disconnects and I can’t turn the Soundbar on again with the xfinity remote.

Your Sony Soundbar should be connected to your Sony television. If you use an HDMI cable connected to the Sony' tv's HDMI ARC port, and the tv is set (under Audio menu) to use the sound bar, the bar will be turned on when you use the remote to turn on the television.
