FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE AIM ANYWHERE ADAPTER COMPATIBLE DEVICES: Q: Can I pair more than one XFINITY Remote with the XR8 adapter? A: Yes, the XR8 supports pairing with up to five XFINITY Remotes per set-top box. 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.
