How do I use Bixby voice control to select an item? QN900a with Q950A Soundbar.

I'm new to this Smart TV.

qn900a with Q950A Soundbar. I like the voice controls because I have a disability, so please don't take this post as you think I'm too lazy to use the remote.

What's been happening is I say, "Hi Bixby, Let's watch the Boston Red Sox"

and it will pull up a menu with four different channels. How do I tell it to choose one?

Sometimes I will say, ""Hi Bixby, let's watch channel 925." And it will activate the Comcast DVR and type in the numbers, but very rarely does it actually do the select part. So you see the numbers as if it's typing, but it never presses  okay. So I want to tell Bixby to press okay and go to that channel.

How do I do it?

Why don't you try saying select and open ( or activate) the channel you wish to watch?

I really appreciate you taking the time to reply.

I tried your suggestion, and what happens is the channel selector opens for the Comcast DVR, it shows channel 850 or whatever I choose, and then it doesn't select the channel. The channel planner just sits there with the number and nothing happens.

There must be a command to get it to action the channel. I'll Google it and see what comes up.

Bixby says, "I'm afraid this function is not supported." 😅

Make sure the settings are setup for voice control- I'm not sure which one 🤔

Yes I have it enabled. I think if there was a way to control the rate of input, it would fix it. I think Bixby is trying to control it too fast, so the select command never gets executed.
