This has been asked many times on this forum. One answer is at http://forums.timewarnercable.com/t5/Spectrum-TV-for-Roku-Devices/DVR-access-from-Roku-app/td-p/1097... .
"Via the RoKu app you will only have access to view the Guide, ON Demand and Live TV. "
"That is due to the Roku Platform does not support that function. You do have this functionality via the TWC TV app or at twctv.com. "
Is it at all possible to program an RCA RCR-313BR 3-device universal remote so that the direct-access keypad will work with a Roku Internet device?
No. The Spectrum TV app currently does not support direct channel inputs like a cable box. Scrolling through the list is the only option. What you can do though is create a set of favorite channels so you don't have as many to scroll through for most of your viewing habits.
Thanks much. I made a list of my favorite channels as you suggested, and it works. My current level of cable service (Spectrum Starter TV) doesn't have that many channels, but it has enough that scrolling through the entire list (on the order of 20 channels) takes a while to find a favorite one. The favorite channels list narrows this down to about ten channels (my area's locals, plus three favorite cable channels which I selected when I signed up for the streaming cable service), which makes it much easier to find the station I wish to watch.
if you aren't paying for cable tv at the weekend place, it won't work there
Cable tv is only licensed to a specific address
A few TV anywhere channels will work there but no premiums or local channels
Switching between the sections in the app (Live TV, Guide, Settings, etc) would be done using the back button to access the Quick Menu of the app and then using the Up and Down navigation buttons to choose the section you want then pressing the Ok button on that selection.
To filter the channels to your favorites in any section where it would list them (Live TV, Guide), you would use the Left navigation button to access the filter/sort menu.
I have attached a button layout of the remote with text labels (referenced above) for each.

Are you saying there's nothing wrong with Sectrum requiring subscribers to purchase a cable package to view these shows? I'm not sure I understand.
Yes, I am saying that in order to view a pay cable network you would have to subscribe to the package that offers that network. If the individual apps for those networks allowed you access to their own programming without being a subscriber, that is on them, not Spectrum.
I was online with a rep and we were able to fix it. The ROKU had an update that I had not installed and it made the Spectrum app not work. To fix it correctly, you have to delete the Spectrum app from your ROKU channels. Go to the settings part of the ROKU and install the latest update. Then reinstall the Spectrum app and do all you login stuff. It worked.
Why am I not getting live NFL preseason games on the Roku app? These aren't games even close to being on local TV stations. Every time I'm getting "A Football Life" episodes instead of the live preseason games. Whats the problem Spectrum?
Are you saying that you can tune the game live via your set-top-box but not using the App on your Roku?
The NFL Network is only airing 16 pre-season games LIVE this pre-season, but will air all of the games eventually via tape delay.
If you want live out of market pre-season games that are not being aired nationally, then you need to pay for the NFL Game Pass, which will get you LIVE pre-season games, as well as replays during the regular season. It costs $99.99.
Here is the schedule of LIVE Pre-season games on NFL Network:
This is not a Spectrum issue, unless you get the games via your STB and not your Roku app while AT HOME on your HOME Wifi / LAN. TV Anywhere means anywhere in your home, not on the planet.
