Like all smart devices, Xfinity remotes can have issues from time to time. Since the remote makes using your Toshiba TV much easier, you will probably want to fix the issue right away.
Here are some common reasons why your remote might not pair with your TV.
Xfinity remotes have to be paired separately to each TV and each box in your house. You also can’t pair more than one TV to the same remote. If you have multiple boxes and TVs in your home, make sure you are using the right remote with the right TV.
