Xfinity XR2 Remote

Recommended Posts

I cant seem to get this programmed. I see some older threads with similar issues.

I can bind a few keys, but eventually run into the Button already Exists bug.

With any layout, for the arrows and OK, Prev, I can only get the following programmed.

I'm on the latest download for the GUI/firmware. I have the metal model.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Flirc>flirc_util.exe keys

    1  DE849CA0   01   right

This remote uses XMP protocol which is quite complicated. I don't think this can be easily fixed.

From what I can see, the remote can be set to also control a TV. Have you tried using it in TV mode to control Flirc?

I think I figured this out using my harmony remote. I Setup my source for Raspberry Pi and had to manually configure Up, Down, Left, Right, OK, Previous to use the TVs buttons. Once I did that, Flirc was able to detect the proper keys. Otherwise I had to set my harmony to the TV device, and then it would send commands as well. Using the xfinity remote itself, it wont learn the commands.

I symlinked readline 6 to readline 7 to get flirc_util to work.  Probably better not to strip the binary.
