Re: Roksbox And Easy Show Status

The upgrade to OS 9 has disabled both Roksbox and Easy Show. I am working with Roku on this and we should have a working update out soon. If you're still on OS 8, these channels will still run fine, but if your Roku has upgraded to OS 9, they will not run. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may c...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Using Roksbox for quite sometime and for the last month, on all 5 boxes, I'm getting "format detected" when I start a video in roksbox. You have to click the ok box to see the video. I think this is from the last update. I have notified Roku. Still waiting for a fix. Anyone? Bump. Mee too...

Re: alternative youtube app?

hoping this isn't verboten topic: "videobuzz", the best kept youtube secret for roku. If verboten, mods, please delete this post rather than locking the thread. It takes a PC to install, but not to run. A couple jumps thru hoops to install and it uses up the one development-app slot on you...

Re: Roku Time Server Down?

Me too. All 3 Roku devices (different models), all running at least 3-4 minutes fast. I also double checked time on my local home router, and it is fine. (DHCP can set time servers if configured as such, and though I haven't specifically config'd an NTP server here, someone somewhere could have assu...

Re: 7.1 Update

I have noticed, coinciding with 7.1 that appeared ~14 April: About 1/3 of the time, my down arrow seems to now be a down-right arrow, and my left arrow seems to be a left-up arrow. The front LED on the Roku blinking often. Roku model: 2720X with radio remote & brand new batteries (never had spil...

Re: new channel: Camera - for IP cameras

Love It BradC How can I buy/donate/etc. Works fine w/ 3 different ultra-cheap cameras that I bought through ali express, but I don't have any zoom/pan on those, they are all fixed. I haven't quite figured out the controls yet but it clearly has camera cycling and a grid mode. Default view seems to c...

A Meta Queue would be cool

I doubt that it is possible. But I'd like to have both Amazon and Netflix on one channel. An app that is a meta queue would be worth a few bucks to me. Where I could essentially see all of my queues in one big queue from some of the "Big Guys" that offer queues and all-you-can-eat service,...

Re: Anything local actually come through live?

Got Roku and Plex on my TV. Like em both. Plex is still a pain in the butt just getting things where I want them. Separating saved movies from music and TV shows. I struggle through, but am now wondering if there is any way to get things which are streaming live on my computer, like the State of Th...

Re: CBS may go online, cut off its broadcast signal if Aereo

Just to nitpick, aereo is not "reselling the signal"; they are renting to their customers an antenna and a DVR, one for each. okay, on to the non nitpick. One of the motivators of this situation is a bunch of exclusive guarantees in the industry. The local affiliates pay big money to netwo...

Re: WebCam Plus

Via email, YungBlood let me know how to fix this. I am documenting the solution here for others. It seems Roku cannot handle items between // and an @ sign (http authentication). But many cams have the capability to do cgi-based authentication instead so the url would look something like this: http:...

Re: WebCam Plus

I am thrilled to finally start seeing this, I was able to purchase and register the channel. My question is, does the channel support URIs with authentication and port information. my cams' URL/URIs to see the image are of the following format: http://username:password@host.domain.com:portnumber/sna...
