Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Try configuring it as an 'Xfinity XG1-A' box. That might work, rather than configuring it as an Arris if there is no Arris in the configuration.

An Xfinity XG1-A is also sometimes equivalent to an Arris MX011ANM, in case that might be available as a configuration.

As for the remote... does it have any maker or model # ***** it? does the remote actually work in any way? does it have batteries in it, that are verifiably good battery(s) ?
