Setup for Infrared control of popular cable receivers

It is important to install the IR emitter to the proper location on the Cable Box receiver.

Below please find some X1 boxes along with photos depicting where to find the IR Target Eye locations (notated in yellow square), as well as the manufacturer name, X1 Platform name and any pertinent notes.

Important point: ALL X1 boxes (excluding the RNG150 models) can do both RF and IR.

A few more important notes to remember regarding IR usage. First, all X1 boxes use the same IR codes. So, if you change from one X1 box to a different model X1 box, you will not need to change any IR codes in myServer 6 configuration. Some boxes have different sensitivity concerns with the IR signal, but the codes are the same.

Second, you cannot use Legacy Box IR codes with X1 boxes. They will not work. The same goes for the reverse; X1 codes will not work with Legacy products.

Lastly, not all Legacy product IR codes will work across different Legacy products. Many will, but some will not.

 

It is also important to ensure that the IR emitter output is only seen by the cable receiver it is installed on.  The IR emitter should be covered so as not to allow IR leakage to other IR receivers.
