New 4k cable box need to change from rf to ir

New 4k cable box need to change from rf to ir

I need to control my new 4k Xfinity cable box with my Harmony remote. I found out that this new box works with RF and not IR. I need to know if I can change the cable box settings from RF to IR so I can use my universal remote. Universal remotes will not work on RF at least not mine.

Press and hold setup, LED goes from red to green and press 987.
