XR11 Remote Pairing Problems

I just traded my X1 cable box in for another due to problems with old one. I received a new XR11 remote which works fine but the XR11 I had will not pair with the new box to control it. It does however control my TV and stereo just not the cable box. I have 2 remotes succesfully paired, is there a limit to how many remotes you can pair with the cable box?

I solved the problem by unpairing the remote by pressing setup untill the led turnd green and entering 981. After doing this it controlled the cable box. I had to reprogram the TV and receiver but now all work fine. Thanks to this forum I was able to find the answer I needed.

press setup until the remote LED changes from red to green. press the Xfinity button then type the numbers on the TV screen.

Yes I tried that many times but it didn't work. Resetting the remote did the trick. Thanks for replying
