private channel won't install

Postby radiocolin » Mon Mar 04, 2013 1:30 pm

A few months ago I made a private channel for my Roku to listen to a radio station I like that eschews Tune In. I just modified the AudioApp.brs example project to use their stream.

I added it to the store as a private channel and have been using it on my Roku 2.

I want to install it on my parents' Roku 1. I go to the owner page, log in to their account, and add the channel with the code. The website says it will be installed, but it never is. It doesn't appear when I enter/exit the store, when I do system > player info and check for updates, or if I just wait 24 hours.

My thought was that maybe there was something in that script that only worked on the Roku 2, but I was able to sideload it to my parents Roku in developer mode and it runs just fine. Obviously I could just leave it like this, but I'd rather add it through the store, since you can't move a sideloaded channel in your lineup.

The private channel is nj1015 if you want to try it for yourself.

Did you perhaps set it for "Roku 2" under "Required Features" when you created the channel?

Go to the Developer section -> "Manage My Channels" -> Click on Channel -> "Edit Channel". Look under "Minimum Firmware Version". I would select "v3.1 b104" to be certain Gen 1 models are covered.

Of course you need to re-Publish the channel after making the change.

Roku 2 isn't checked under required features.

I changed the firmware to 3.1 b104. Previously it was set to the lowest option in the menu, which was 2.something.

Still no luck.

Only other setting I could see is the Regional Setting, which is what countries you have the Channel set to broadcast to. Also, under "Edit Private Channel" do you have Roku 2 checked as a Required Feature (or anything other setting for that matter).

At this point you probably want to take this to the developer's forum. RokuJoel may be able to figure out what's going on.

It's not regional because both Rokus are US. And I already said it's not the Roku 2 box. I'll take it over to the dev forum, thanks.

Could also be that the Roku's 1 channel limit is maxed out. Keep in mind the old Rokus did have a limit on how many Channels could be installed at a time (based on their size).

In those situations, when entering/exiting the Channel Store following a channel being added, doesn't the Roku 1 display a message that it's out of memory (or too many channels or something)? Or is that only for Channel Store channels?

The Roku 1 is not full. I can load other channels from the store just fine.

Different channels have different memory requirements. Not saying that is the issue, but just FYI

Issue solved. Something was wonky with the packaging that the 1 cared about but the 2 didn't. Repackaged, reuploaded, and all is well.
