Calendar Channel?

Postby japzone » Tue May 10, 2011 11:25 am

Just wondering who else was interested in seeing some kind of Calendar Channel. I thought it would be great if my family could Turn the TV on and Display the Family's Google Calendar on the TV. We used to have a Dry Erase Calendar that we would put the Schedule on but it got inconvenient when we needed to access the Schedule remotely (like at School or Work) so we switched to a Google Calendar instead. It's a lot more convenient on the go but now we miss having something in our Kitchen to take a Quick look at. As we have a Roku hooked up to our Kitchen TV, I was thinking it would be perfect if we could just Display the Google Calendar on it.

What do you guys think?

I use Google calendar also. I would find access to it through my Roku very useful.

I'm working on a channel right now that does this. It's built out as a screensaver though, so you get a list of your upcoming events whenever the Roku is idle. If you'd like to be part of the beta, send me a PM with your email.

Thanks,
Ryan

Ryan sent a list of questions to people that offered to beta test in late May, but I've heard nothing since then. I'll send him an email, see if he's still working on it.

Received an update from Ryan:

Got caught up with some other projects and this one is actually pending some changes from the Roku dev team. It's not ready for a beta release until those firmware quirks get worked out. I'm in contact with the Roku dev team and working on getting them resolved.

Hello,

CalendarStream is now available for free. It has a pretty basic monthly calendar with events color coded. It also has a list view to see all events in date order. You can link any number of calendars, but currently they all must be Google calendars.

I am planning an upgraded version, so I would appreciate any feedback that you may have.

Thanks!

I installed it, but deleted it. The display looked very fuzzy.

I think it would be better if Roku actually built in a Calendar channel with optional pop up reminders and such.

Otherwise I myself may have to pass on this. Works well enough on my Cell and PC.

Plus I dunno if I want reminders popping up while watching content either....

However I think some would enjoy this.

Then again I'd like to see some type of Google Voice caller ID pop up system too. There is a G-Voice Roku channel just the SDK doesn't allow any type of cross channel pop up notifications.

Would be kinda cool though if the SDK added such a feature. ;) Especially for an emergency alert type system too.
