Thank you for suggesting to look up the Xfinity name for the Arris box! I've spent the entire holiday weekend trying to come up with a solution. I **NEVER** thought to look up the name 'Xfinity'! Precisely why I hate any proprietary electronics! This pretty much solved my issues to activate the PVR- Xfinity X1 DVR box to be controlled by my very old Harmony 880 remote. I might have to tweak a few things. It's not set up like the Legacy platform, which was superior to me. But at least I can ditch the voice remote and have everything operate like I want it to. I HATE the Xfinity remote, using two remotes, and am getting ready to ditch all of it. Having one remote and NO box is what I'm going for. Now if the Harmony remote would get rid of the "mother ship" DVR boxes, which if it goes out then ALL of the other TV's in the house go out, too, then I would be thrilled.
If anyone has a solution to an easier way to watch TV, cheaper, HD, and not paying ANY cable company, I would be grateful. Following this thread with great hope.
