The Xfinity Voice Controller (models XR11, XR15, XR16, XRA, and the Flexible Remote) is a portable device that allows you to find what you want way quicker by using voice control to switch channels, search for shows, get recommendations, and more.

The XR15 Xfinity Voice Controller is a concept improvement over the first Voice Remote (XR11), but it still performs the same functions. This remote, which is only coherent with certain TV boxes, helps you find what you’re looking for faster by using voice commands. You can switch channels, search for tv shows, get recommendations, and do other things.

The XR11 Xfinity Voice Controller is a speech remote that is compatible with select TV boxes. Using voice control to switch channels, browse for shows, get recommendations, and more, you can get what you need faster. You can also use your audio to quickly find beloved shows or movies, as well as search for and control your DVR.

It’s aggravating to misplace your television remote. It can be inconvenient to have to undergo a whole setup process again. Fortunately, Xfinity remotes are not like other remotes. Thanks to the online remote software lookup tool, they are relatively simple to pair with your TV.

So, how do you connect your Xfinity remote to your television?

Open the web code lookup instrument, select the prototype of your Xfinity controller and the product of your TV, and finish the setup using the password you receive.

We will look at how to download and install the X1, XR11, and XR15 devices for your TV in this guide, as well as answer some commonly asked questions about Xfinity remotes.

Program X1 Remote For TV

You can set your X1 remote to control both your TV and your audio equipment. All you have to do is go to Xfinity’s official website and look for the Xfinity Remote Code Lookup Tool. Choose your remote’s model and push continue to discover your TV’s (or audio platform’s) distinct code.

Press and hold the setup button on remotes with a setup button, such as the XR11, until the situation LED at the top of the device turns green. Input the four or five-digit code you discovered using the remote software lookup tool once the remote is in setup mode.

The status LED will blink green twice if the setup is successful. If, on the other hand, the status LED flashes red, try a different code. For remotes that lack a setup button, such as the XR15, hold and press the Xfinity and mute buttons simultaneously while the TV is turned on until the condition LED at the top of the remote turns green.

When this occurs, insert the four or five-digit controller code you discovered earlier. If the status LED blinks green twice, as it does on the XR11, the setup was effective. A red flash implies that the configuration failed and that you should try another code.

How To Pair Xfinity Remote To TV

Pair The XR11 Remote To A TV

You can pair the XR11 controller to your TV without utilizing the remote software lookup tool by doing the following:

  1. Turn on the television.
  2. Switch the TV input to the one linked to the Xfinity TV Box.
  3. Hold down the Setup icon until the condition LED at the edge of the remote changes to green.
  4. On the remote, press the Xfinity button. The status LED will start to flash green.
  5. Input the three-digit synchronization code shown on the screen.
  6. Your XR11 controller is now linked to your television.

Pair The XR15 Remote To A TV

You can pair the XR15 controller to your TV without utilizing the remote software lookup tool by doing the following:

  1. Turn on the television.
  2. Switch the TV input to the one linked to the Xfinity TV Box.
  3. For about five seconds, hold and press the Xfinity and info icons together until the condition LED at the edge of the remote flip green.
  4. Input the three-digit synchronization code shown on the screen.
  5. Your XR15 controller is now linked to your television.
  6. Once the controller has been successfully paired, follow the on-screen instructions to configure your TV’s power, loudness, and input control.

Resync vs Reset on the Xfinity Remote

An Xfinity remote can be interconnected with an Xfinity box to control the TV from up to 50 feet away. If you have matched the Xfinity controller with an Xfinity box and want to pair it with another Xfinity box, you must resync the remote.

To do so, unpair your controller from the now connected TV and then pair it with the new TV. You can pair your Xfinity to your TV by pressing the Microphone button and saying “Program Remote.” Then, to pair with your TV, follow the instructions shown on the TV screen.

Alternatively, you can press the A toggle on your remote, select Remote Settings, and then follow the directions on the screen. After the pairing process is complete, you can make additional changes such as volume, contrast, resolution, and so on.

Resetting your controller means that all of your previous settings will be lost. It’s the same as holding a completely new remote control. The TV with which you earlier connected your Xfinity portable will no longer recognize it. You will have to start the pairing process over.

When To Reset Xfinity Remote

When the buttons on your Xfinity Remote quit functioning and modifying the batteries is ineffective, you can machine reset your remote as a last resort. When you factory reset your remote, it will return to the condition it was in when you purchased it from a seller.

You’ll have to link it and configure it all over again. If you find it difficult to un-matched your Xfinity controller from your TV, you can reset it.

This is due to the fact that rebooting your remote unpairs it from the TV. The catch is that the resetting process will erase all previous settings.

Setting up your Xfinity controller with the remote software lookup tool is a quick and easy process. It’s worth noting that each TV manufacturer has different distributed codes. So, if one code somehow doesn’t work, you do not need to be concerned. You could always try another code.

If none of the systems work for you, it’s possible that there was an error during setup, and you will need to perform a hard reset on your controller before you can set it up again.
