FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ABOUT THE AIM ANYWHERE ADAPTER
COMPATIBLE
DEVICES:
Q: Can I pair more than one

A: Yes, the XR8 supports pairing with
up to five XFINITY Remotes per

SET-TOP BOXES
Q: Why can’t I use my other remotes after pairing my XFINITY
Remote with the XR8 adapter?
A: Some set-top boxes only support
XFINITY Remotes when using
the XR8. You can replace your
old remote with another XFINITY
Remote and pair it with the
XR8.
Q: During pairing, why does the
LED blink red and then green
on the XFINITY Remote?
A: Either a button other than the
XFINITY button was pressed,
or the XFINITY Remote timed
out before the XFINITY button
was pressed. Repeat the pairing
steps.
Q: During pairing, why does the
LED blink red, then green, then
red on the XFINITY Remote?
A: The XFINITY Remote you are
trying to pair cannot find the
XR8. Unplug the XR8 and plug
it back in, making sure the red
LED on top of the adapter turns
on for 3-5 seconds. Then, repeat
the steps to pair the XR8 and
XFINITY Remote. Be sure to press
the PAIR button on the XR8 before
you press the XFINITY button on
your XFINITY Remote.
Q: When paired, why does the LED
blink green, then red on the
XFINITY Remote when a button is
pressed?
A: The XR8 may have lost power or
may be out of communication
range. Try moving closer to your
set-top box and make sure the XR8
is securely connected. If this does
not fix the issue, follow the steps
to re-pair the XR8 and XFINITY
Remote.
Q: Why is the XR8 adapter not responding to button presses from
my XFINITY Remote?
A: If the XR8 stops responding to an
already paired XFINITY Remote,
unplug the XR8 and plug it back in.
If this does not fix the issue, follow
the steps to re-pair the XR8 and
XFINITY Remote.
Q: Why does the LED continuously
blink when I plug in the XR8
adapter?
A: Your device is not compatible
with the XR8; please refer to the
“Compatible Devices” section for
supported devices.
