I have the Xfinity XG1-A box, and have a rather complex setup using a Sharp 3D TV, Yamaha Receiver, 2 DVD Players (Oppo & Sony BluRay), and several other devices, but the reason for this thread is that I use Harmony 880 computer programmable with custom LCD screen to make control tremendously easier using single remotes to control everything, and replicate the process across remotes for each of use (my wife & I).
I have all devices in a closet behind the wall mounted TV, with IR Repeaters connected to each device. The setup is flawless, except the NEW X1 Box FREEZES on multiple IR commands like PAGING UP THROUGH GUIDE, or ANY MULTIPLE key entries like several arrow keys in a row. I originally had Arris cable box programmed, so I reprogrammed just in case it was the remote, but its not !
Is there a newer X1 box that fixes these issues ?
