If you’re wondering how you can set up your Xfinity Flex remote, make sure that your remote has batteries and that you are within the range of the streaming device, then proceed to pair or connect it.
For this guide, we will guide you in setting up and pairing whatever Xfinity remote you have for it to be able to control your TV!
Whether you have a voice remote, a remote that has a setup button, or a remote that doesn’t have a setup button, we got you!
Many people are left bewildered by the process of how to connect Xfinity Flex remote to the TV. But, did you know that the process is actually simple and easy?
Regardless of the remote you have, if you own an Xfinity Flex, this guide is perfect for you! We’ll be covering all the types and kinds of remote controls you have, so don’t worry!
Here’s the process of how to connect your Xfinity Flex remote to navigate your streaming device!
Xfinity’s voice remote allows you to perform certain actions via voice command. This process is usually the one you have to follow if your remote control does not have number keys on it.
But, before starting the process, you need to make sure that:
- You are within the range of the Xfinity FlexBox
- The batteries are inside the remote control
- The television and the FlexBox are turned on
Now, to do it, you simply need to press the [MIC] button. When it recognizes that you want to do a voice command, simply say “Program Remote.”
From there, you just have to follow the on-screen instructions and that’s it!
Should you own an Xfinity remote that contains a setup button (XR5 and XR52), the process is a bit different.
There are voice remotes that have a setup button, too. You can do this process instead if you’re more comfortable setting it up manually versus using voice commands.
- Make sure that the remote has batteries.
- Connect the Flex Box to the television and turn the television on.
- Set the TV to the correct input.
- Press and hold [SETUP] on the remote until the LED light changes.
- Press [XFINITY] on the remote.
- Enter the 3-digit code that is on your screen, this is the pairing code.
- Wait for the confirmation that the remote has been paired.
There will be instances where the 3-digit pairing code wouldn’t appear on-screen – don’t panic if it happens.
If you somehow experience this, you just must press [XFINITY] again. There will be situations where you must press it multiple times until you see the code.
This usually happens when there is more than one Xfinity device in the vicinity.
If your remote control neither has a setup button nor the voice option, then this will be the process that you have to follow.
- Install the batteries on the remote control.
- Turn on and activate the Flex device and the television.
- Check which HDMI input you’re in and set the TV to that input.
- Press and hold [INFO] and [XFINITY] for five (5) to six (6) seconds.
- You’ll see the LED indicator’s light change from red to green.
- Carefully follow the instructions on your screen.
- Then, proceed to enter the 3-digit pairing code that you see.
Note: As an alternative, you can also press and hold [XFINITY] and [MUTE] to initiate the set-up process.
The two procedures work the same, so it’ll be at your discretion what you want to press.
That’s it! With any of these step-by-step procedures, you’ll be successful in setting up your Xfinity Flex remote!
If you’ve carefully followed these guides, but you’re still unable to pair and set up your Xfinity Flex remote, the next best thing to do is to perform a factory reset.
To do a factory reset, you have to press and hold the info button [i] and the [HOME] button until the LED indicator on your remote blinks, this usually takes about five (5) seconds.
From there, you just have to press the power button [PWR], the last button [<], then the volume down button [-] in sequence to conclude and complete the factory reset.
It might take a few seconds for the system to recognize it, so don’t worry if it doesn’t happen in an instant.
After that, you can try to pair and set up your Xfinity Flex remote again.
As a quick reminder, when you successfully set up the Xfinity Flex remote to one (1) device, you wouldn’t be able to use it to another device unless you pair it to that device. Xfinity Flex remotes are only capable of controlling one device at a time.
To successfully pair or set up your Xfinity Flex remote, install charged-up batteries on your remote, then be in close range to the device before pairing or setting it up. Then, if you encounter problems, perform a factory reset and try again.
