Xfinity 4K XG1v4 Cable Box Audio Output

Unaware that Xfinity offered a 4K capable cable box... I just upgraded to the 4K XG1v4 DVR cable box from the old XG1. I have Control4 Smart Home System throughout my home. The old cable box had RCA audio out ports, which ran to the Control4 system. The new XG1v4 box doesn't have any RCA ports, let alone any audio out ports... Has anyone ran into this problem or know of a solution for this?

that is really older and deprecated technology.  if you are just using stereo (not 5.1 audio or better) you can put an HDMI audio breakout box

and use a cable

to hook up to your audio system. if you are using the TV's built in speakers or receiver/soundbar for audio that is not what you want/need.
