Xfinity button on old grey remote?

Hello!

 

I've just got X1 cable box and setup my old remote - Grey with red OK button -

to work with it (based on the steps in https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/X1/Using-an-old-remote-with-an-X1-box/td-p/2356119)

It works, but now I need to find a way to see my newly recorded shows on my new X1 DVR - but to access it on X1, Comcast suggests to use "Xfinity" button which is not present on my old grey remote. Is it another way to reach recorded stuff? Or may be there is an analog of pressing Xfinity button on my old remote?

I don’t know if there is but did you try the menu button. Is there a reason you don’t want to use the proper remote?

you should have received an xr11 or xr15 with the X1 set top box.
