Using a Samsung or other Universal remote to control Xfinity XG1v4

For all the conversations about reprogramming remotes and boxes from or to IR or RF, you don't have to do either. Your universal remote can handle all operations by simply buying a cheap IR extender from Amazon and attaching the dongle (receiver) to the lower right corner of the XG1v4 box. If you prefer to use the Xfinity remote for all functions including hub, you'll need their latest remote (the one with voice button light).
