Comcast Xfinity XR2/XR5/XR11 programming

Comcast Xfinity XR2 universal remote

Your XFINITY Remote is already programmed to control your set-top box. To program the remote for controling the Power/Volume/Mute/TV Input on your TV or Power/Volume/Mute on your Audio Video Receiver (AVR) / Soundbar, follow the steps below:

Direct code entry

Note: The programming procedure is the same for TVs and AVRs. If you want to instruct your remote to simultaneously control your TV and AVR, the TV must be programmed in before the AVR.

Step 1: Press and hold the "Setup" button on your remote until the status LED changes from red to green.

Step 2: Enter the first 5-digit code listed for the TV/AVR manufacturer (e.g., 11758 for Vizio). The status LED should flash green twice.

Step 3: Press the "TV Power"/"All Power" button on the remote. If the TV/AVR turns off, you have successfully programmed your remote. Turn the TV/AVR back on and press the "VOL+/-" and "Mute" buttons to confirm they control the volume of your device.

Step 4: If the TV/AVR does not turn off or the "VOL+/-" and "Mute" buttons do not work, repeat the steps above using the next code listed for your TV/AVR manufacturer.

Note: To program the new XR15 remotes, press and hold the "Xfinity" and "Mute" buttons together for 5 seconds in step 1, instead of "Setup". The rest of the procedure is the same.

 

Code search

If you can't find a working code for your TV and/or AVR, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Turn on your TV and AVR.

Step 2: Press and hold the "Setup" button on your remote until the status LED changes from red to green.

Step 3: To search for a TV code, enter 9 9 1 on the remote. To search for an AVR code, enter 9 9 2. The status LED should flash green twice.

Step 4: Press the "CH ^" button repeatedly to search through the manufacturer codes until the device you are programming turns off.

Step 5: After the device turns off, press "Setup". The status LED on your remote should flash green twice. Press the "TV Power"/"All Power" button on the remote. If the device turns on, you have successfully programmed your remote.

 

Aim Anywhere Pairing

Your Xfinity remote can be paired with Aim Anywhere devices, including select set-top boxes, allowing you to control your devices even when they are placed out of line-of-sight (up to 50 feet away).

Follow the steps below to pair your remote with the Aim Anywhere device:

Step 1: Press and hold the "Setup" button for 3 seconds, until the status LED changes from red to green.

Step 2: Press the "XFINITY" button on the remote. Your TV should display on-screen instructions to enter a 3-digit code. If the instructions do not appear, press the "XFINITY" button again - up to two more times.

Step 3: Follow the on-screen instructions to enter the 3-digit code that appears.

Step 4: Once the code is correctly entered, your Xfinity Remote is paired with the device.

Removing Aim Anywhere Control

Once your remote control is paired with your set-top box, it will not control any other set-top box in your home unless you pair it with another device.

If you would like to use your remote to control multiple Xfinity set-top boxes simultaneously, you can remove Aim Anywhere pairing by following the steps below:

Step 1: Press and hold the "Setup" button on the remote until the status LED changes from red to green.

Step 2: Press "A" on the remote. If the status LED blinks green twice, you have successfully removed Aim Anywhere control. You can now use your remote to control other Comcast set-top boxes simultaneously.
