Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
I am new to Roku. I like everything except that I can't figure out how to voice search within the Spectrum app. As a frequent channel changer, I miss the numbers on my cable remote. Hoped voice remote would replace that, but not the case. If anyone has suggestions on changing channels in the Spectrum app without having to scroll through the channel guide, it would be appreciated.
Re: Use voice remote to search within Spectrum app
I was hoping to be able to voice search as well but cant get it to work. As an alternative I've gone into the guide by hitting the back arrow and saved networks to favorites by clicking ok on the highlighted network. Also the Roku app on a phone or tablet can be used to change channels.
Noticed this when I tried earlier. I had to hit the * to go to options and then "update" the channels. It then appears to have synced up with my favorites from another device I use the app on (but not the favorites on my main DVR box).
Based on the fact this thread is 2 years old, it doesn't seem that there is an "easy" way of this. I've tried "channel xxxx" and it brings up several things completely unrelated to what I am trying to access. So, the "add to favorites" seems to be the best way to go, but looks like you can't narrow that down to the individual user (i.e. I access many more channels than the other household member does, and would like to narrow down the list of favorites for them).
