The new X1 remote light doesn't stay on long enough for use in a darkened room. The buttons are so flat and indistinct that I cannot operate the remote by feel as easily as the previous version. "Lift To Illuminate" or user-configurable lighting duration are much better user experiences. Pls fix this!
The backlight not automatically turning on when the remote is a very big setback in functionality, along with the button redesign it makes it very hard to use in the dark. The auto key light was the best feature of the previous model, why did they get rid of it??
No clue; I use both XR11 and XR15 remotes with my 4k DVR's and my companion XG2 box. Both remotes should be free at your nearest Xfinity Store.
