I was doing a self setup of a flex streaming set top TV box and after it powers up I get stuck on the "Select Your Language" screen where the remote did not allow me to actually select my language. The remote doesn't seem to do anything with this TV.
I went back to the Xfinity store and swapped my box/ remote, but that did not fix it. Then I called the technical support and they did not know how to help me! They scheduled a visit by a field technician . But after searching Internet about how to fix a remote XR15 connection, I found that I had to reset my remotw. I had to pressing two buttons simultanously for 5 seconds (buttons A and D), then I had press 9, 8, 1 to reset the remote. Once I did this, the remote started to work!
Is this normal? Why I could not make two boxes from Infinity work and I had to do my own research to fix this !?
Thank You! There are many people on this forum who had this problem, but no one had offered a solution to them. I can see why this is a common problem if two remotes from the store had the same problem. Perhaps Comcast/ Xfinity stores and technical support technicians should be trained to understand this type of issue. The technical support people kept trying to reset my streaming box from their network access many times! I had to spend more than 5 hours on this problem before I resolve this myself!
Thank you so much. This is the procedure I used. Press the settings button until the light turns green. Then press the AB button for five seconds. For some reason, I didn't need to press/ enter 981 following the pressing of the AB buttons. It just started working. Bingo, Bango :-). Thank you again !!
For me, it worked to hold down SETUP button for about 5 secs (until the light turned from red to green), then hit 9-8-1.
