multiple remotes

I have a comcast cable box (AX013ANM) with X1 remote and Samsung TV.  All working fine.  Can I add another remote (generic GE line-of-sight) to this cable box and still keep the existing X1 remote operational?  The X1 would continue to be the main remote and the GE remote would be used to control the cable box as well as other devices.

Thanks...

line of sight remotes use IR to generate a coded beam of light. the DVR will react to the correct received codes and does not affect the use of the current X1 remote when it is connected via RF (paired).
