Try a custom button train (right from real remote) and put it on a lcd-screen button for Activity.
The voice recognition is done by the Xfinity remote. The button operates the remote itself and doesn't send any sort of signal to the DVR, similar to how a backlight button would work. It's impossible to replicate with a universal remote.

Sorry, I didn't even consider this.


You are right.


Suggestion to the OP ... setup 650 custom and use. When you want to use XFinity-VR feature, looks like you will have to pick-up XFinity remote and talk into it.

Living Room Home-Theater:
Epson 8350 1080p Projector (96") / Panasonic TH-46pz850u 46" 1080p Plasma TV
Onkyo TX-sr607 7.2 HDMI Audio/Video Amplifier/Receiver (630 watts)
Panasonic DMP-BD60 Blu-Ray Disc Player / Cisco 8742hdc DVR (TimeWarner)
Harmony 670 - Universal Remote / HTPC (XMBC/Win7-64) Media Server PC
Polk Audio Monitor Series II Speakers (Large 6.1 Matched Separates) / PSW505 12-Inch Sub
