Manually change Wi-Fi channel on XBB

Platinum member wants to resolve why I set my settings for my home network only to have them wiped out without 1/2 hour. I change the Wi-Fi channels for all bands manually because certain channels that the router self imposes are garbage for my network devices which are 2years old. 
let’s get this resolved before I cancel service

You don't have any radio channel control on Xfinity gear.

*Edit: You can change the "radio mode", ie shut off wifi6 and go with different 2.4G and 5G bands, but only if you aren't using Xfinity Pods.  No individual channel selection available in any mode.  You'll need 3rd party gear if you want more control of the radios themselves.

Buy your own modem and router and you can make whatever changes you want. If you need the XB8 for some reason, like some cable boxes, you can put it in bridge mode and use your own router.
