Changing cable channels with Bixby

I recently purchased a new Samsung Neo QLED 4K (2021) TV and I am experimenting with Bixby commands.  I am having trouble getting Bixby to change cable channels.

My TV model: QN50QN90AAFXZA (firmware 1560.5)
My Xfinity cable set-top box model: XiD-C  CXD01ANI

When I say "Hi Bixby, change channel to 1 2 3" the cable box displays on the TV its search box with the numbers 123 entered, but the channel doesn't change.  The cable box is waiting for an "OK" or "Select".  I can press the OK on the cable remote control and the channel will change.  I have also tried "Hi Bixby, change channel to 1 2 3 okay" and "Hi Bixby, change channel to 1 2 3 select".  Bixby ignores the word after the channel numbers.

Can Bixby be programmed to supply the "OK" or "Select" code to the cable box?

Thanks for any help you might be able to give on this!  I am still learning to use Bixby.
