    Please add: "Motorola, RG1-A" Remote



      The new remote Comcast now uses for their newer X1 platform is not currently supported by SlingBox. As this has now been out for over a year, I would like to kindly ask that you add/ update/ or configure the "RG1-A" (Motorola) remote into your available remote library AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so that I (along with many others to come I am sure) can utilize the great product I have bought from Slingbox.


      Thank you.

          You need to post this in the Remote Requests section.   And it will take months before anything happens.   What do you actually need in the short time ?  Just the correct image or do you need the whole remote control ?

              Hi Alan,
              I need the entire remote as the current model I'm using (comcast silver standard model) does not respond to certain functions/ commands on both my Laptop & Mobile devices.



              - Channels do not change from the guide drop down, but do change when entering from the on-screen remote(even though it's the incorrect remote for my set top box).

              - Cannot access the DVR at all from any device (Laptop, Desktop, or Mobile)


              Can you assist?

                  Not specifically, as I have no knowledge of the Comcast box (I am with Verizon).  But I do know there have been dozens of posts over the last few months about this issue so you need to do a forum search on 'Comcast X1'.    As I recall, no-one has figured out the Channel Change from Guide problem, but I fairly sure the DVR problem has been fixed.


                  I can provide you with a Custom Remote for Problem 2, if you can't find a solution.
