Disable the Aim Anywhere Feature on Your X1 Remote

Print
Once your XFINITY X1 remote control is paired to your TV box, DTA, TV or audio device with Aim Anywhere functionality, it is uniquely paired to those devices and will not control any other device in your home. If you would like to use your remote control for a different TV box, TV or audio device, you must first unpair the remote control from the current devices.

Disable Aim Anywhere for Your X1 TV Box or DTA

If you wish to unpair your remote from your X1 TV box or DTA, please follow the instructions below.
  1. Press and hold the Setup button on the remote until the status LED changes from red to green.
  2. Press A on the remote. If the status LED blinks green twice, you have successfully unpaired your remote, disabling Aim Anywhere control.
The remote control can now be used for other X1 TV boxes or DTAs in your home, and it will continue to control the X1 TV box in IR mode. If using the Voice Remote, it will no longer respond to voice commands.

Disable Aim Anywhere for Your TV or Audio Device

If you wish to unpair your remote from your TV or audio device in addition to your X1 TV box or DTA, please follow the instructions below.
  1. Press and hold the Setup button on the remote until the status LED changes from red to green.
  2. Enter 9-8-7 on the remote control. If the status LED blinks green twice, you have successfully removed all pairing from the remote control.
The remote control will now be unpaired from all devices. The remote will continue to control any X1 TV box in IR mode. If using the Voice Remote, it will no longer respond to voice commands. The remote will need to be re-programmed if you wish to control the TV or audio devices.
