apparently there are some UNDOCUMENTED FEATURES on the X1 remote. I had the X1 platform installed two weeks ago and was quite dismayed when the remote suported ony the cable box and the tv. i ranted, raved, held my breath til i was blue in the face and told the comcast tech that my favorite feature on the old remote was the "all on/off" with the added ability to control my sound box volume. the tech insisted the new remote design was to simplify it. after i pouted for a while the tech made a series of phone calls and came up with a solution. he was able to program my x1 remote to work just like the old one .... controlling "on/off" for my x1 cable box, sharp tv, and yamaha sound box, as well as linking the volume +/- to the sound box as well. the tech admitted he had surprised even himself by finding the solution.
