Postby xenophon » Fri Feb 20, 2009 9:57 am

Please post any key sequences here to access hidden features...

Bitrate Screen - set bandwidth, stream profile mode (main/advanced), debug
In home screen....
[HOME] 5 times, [REW] 3 times, [FF] 2 times

If you have issues accessing content, voice sync issues, try switching stream profile mode.
Set debug mode in this screen to see connection rates.

Secret Screen - update, debug options
[HOME] 5 times, [FF] 3 times, [REW] 2 times

Reboot
[HOME] 5 times, [UP] once, [REW] 2 times, [FF] 2 times

Factory Reset via reset button
Hold down the reset button on bottom/left back of box for 15 seconds. (from the manual)
___________

Controlling box from computer

From eri3k in the Network Control thread...

telnet into the player on port 8080 of the Roku's IP address. Here are the commands to control the player (you really only need to use the first letter of the button):

press up
press down
press left
press right
press select
press home
press fwd
press back
press pause

From Windows... Start -> Run -> telnet ipaddress_of_roku 8080

You can find the IP address of Roku in the Info screen. This can be useful if you lost your remote control, while waiting for a new one.

More on Network Control here

Will update this list based on other input.

Any others?

Will having 30 lives help us to attack the Hulu army's fortress in order to gain access to their content via the Roku mothership? We are going to need spread fire and lasers.

Lots of old Nintendo games used this as a cheat code. That's why they refer to cheats in the next line of the song.

1. A step to the left
2. A hop to the right
3. Put your hands on your hips
4. Draw your knees in tight
5. Thrust your pelvis until you are driven insane
6. Repeat

I remeber cheat codes back in the atari 2600 days...i was just trying to figure out if they were referring to the song or the games. I guess the games make sense when considering the subject matter...

but i'm old now and my brain doesnt work so fast anymore?

BZZZT!
Actual lyric:
It's just a jump to the left
And then a step to the right
With your hands on your hips
You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust that really drives you insane,
Let's do the Time Warp again!
Then as it was, then again it will be
An' though the course may change sometimes,
rivers always reach the sea
