Re: "There appears to have a problem. Please try again later"

I believe it's been fixed.  All the unpublished channels I had that were problematic are now working correctly.

Re: Switching Channel from SDK to Direct Publisher

It can't be done natively, in otherwords, there isn't an established method in the dashboard to achieve it. None that I'm aware of. However I would try reaching out to Roku in some way (mod: Roku Shawn or Joel or whoever the current one is). Or if you have any contacts or past emails you can reach ...

Re: Switching Channel from SDK to Direct Publisher

Direct Publisher uses a feed file to drive the channel.  You'll need to create and manage either an MRSS or JSON feed file that describes your channel content.  Having said that, you should be aware that Direct Publisher does not currently support a subscription model.

Re: Generate Direct Publisher JSON feeds with Wordpress

Using Wordpress, how would one go about taking an existing video podcast feed and automatically using it to populate a roku category?  The RSS feed already has all the info needed. . .just need to figure out how to push it to Roku in a manner that works.
