Xfinity Remote connection to Sharp Roku TV

I am trying to sync my Xfinity remote with a new Sharp Smart TV.  All functions are working except when TV powers up and I get the menu for "Cable" vs "Antenna" vs "streaming service, e.g., Netflix.  I would think the arrows and "ok" button would support this function.  I've tried programming the remote using all Sharp codes and the 991 to search codes....  Please advise.

The remote will only turn it off/on and adjust volume and change inputs. There's no other TV function capability
