Re: Samsung one remote and Arris xi6-T

Still battling the ignite system.
During set up there is a section "cable or Satellite Contril Test". I think I have a Arris Xi6-T box (please confirm) when will this box be an option in "search model number field?

Does Rogers have a xi4 box to use with Ignite?

They are currently using Xi6-T boxes.  I have the Xi6-A versions. Not sure what the difference is.

I've been reading this thread and am still unclear as to exactly what you are trying to get working.  Did you install the "Xfinity Stream" app on your Samsung TV and is this what you are trying to get working with Ignite TV?

Re: Samsung one remote and Arris xi6-T

I have this working. My Samsung remote is controlling both my tv and my ignite box over RF (not IR). The secret is to set up the remote to control Comcast and go from there. Once.the setup is complete for IR, go and enable RF. you'll get a code to pair. Enter it and everything works.

Re: Samsung one remote and Arris xi6-T

I have done the setup under Comcast and have IR working, how exactly do you "go and enable RF" ?

Go to the remote icon in Samsung hub, click up and you should see an option to enable RF.

Once this is working, the right bar on the remote brings up the Rogers guide, and selecting the home icon for Comcast on the Samsung hub brings up the main Rogerz menu.

Weird, it seems my Samsung TV (MU8000) doesn't have any options on the remote icon. I guess mine only supports IR. Thanks for the explanation hopefully it will help others who have this option on their Samsung TV.
