Flipper Remote and Infra Red settings

Flipper Remote and Infra Red settings

I bought a Flipper Remote V7 (large buttons) for my elderly mother who has a hard time using the Comcast remote. 

I am trying to get the Flipper to work with Xfinity cable box  model # XG2-v2-P.  Flipper support says I need to change the Xfinity from RF to IR. (infra red) to make the remote work.  Is this even possible?  I can't find anything in the settings.  If anyone has any help, I'd appreciate it.  

Thanks
