To the xfinity X1 service. I was able to control their old boxes via the DVD recorder via an IR blaster. However, the previous Motorola code no longer works.
Has anyone else had any success being able to control an X1 box with their DVD recorder and if so what code did you use?

The EH55s were made in 2006. It is unlikely that any device with newer codes will have been programmed into its memory. Many newer systems still use the older codes, but if yours does not, then it's unlikely that you will get it to work in a similar manner. You could just try all the possible codes sequentially, but that would be very time consuming. Sorry.

That's what I'm afraid of

Thanks for the reply

I was thinking that you might look for a firmware update that COULD have an assortment of newer IR codes, but that would be a REALLY long shot.

I have good news in that while Comcast SAYS you can't mix x1 boxes with standard boxes, I got a new old-fashioned digital box and I'm going to be able to swap it out with my DVD recorder dedicated x1 box

This will allow the DVD recorder to control the channels via the IR blaster

The standard boxes also allow you zoom SD letterboxed content, which is good for my DVD recording. As well as during football season when a few of my boxes are feeding computer monitors, which lack aspect ratio control
