Probably because the Kinectbox is already a cable box.

i read something about this on the support page. The kinect uses a infrared signal to control the set top like a universal remote would. Mine is doing the same thing because of how I had to set it up in my living room. They suggested using an infrared extender. There is even a dedicated port on the back of the console for one. They are around $20 at walmart.

I have this exact cable box thru cox cable. Everything is working fine on my end. Only problem I initially had was no audio but that was due to a setting on the cable box.

When you were doing the initial setup did it test things for you like muting your tv and testing cable box functions? Mine passed the tests. Then I had to manually type in the make/model of my tv, receiver and cable box.

Pros: The pills were there.
