Re: Problem with the PlayerTask

The .brs and .xml files with the same names should probably be in the same directory.  Look in the XML files for something like: <script type="text/brightscript" uri="pkg:/components/screens/Player.brs" /> In this case, they'd both go in the components/screens directory. -JT

Re: how to turn off roku TV through the web?

I don't know about ECP, but this works (in Linux):
echo press \# | telnet 192.168.0.121 8080

Of course, replace 192.168.0.121 with your Roku's IP address.

Re: MPEG2 support: patent expires worldwide, almost

WTV recordings will play on my Roku TV if I repackage them into an MKV file (no transcoding required). Or, is the question whether WTV file/container is supported natively?

Re: Roku remote won't pair properly

I've had remotes that will only pair with a certain set of batteries installed. It's weird. Two sets of brand new batteries (different brands) and one set will get the remote to pair and the other won't. Usually, once it's paired I can use any batteries I want.

Re: Hope simple change to wrap channel clips

I can't say that I follow the code and all the XML feeds enough to offer any advice. This SG stuff makes it flower near impossible to follow someone else's code. :evil: I'd say just try it and see what happens. I suspect it will only take the first <feed> entry and ignore the rest.

Re: Undocumented words

For multidemensional arrays, it would be
Dim x[5,3]

as per the docs.

One way is from the console:

Re: Hope simple change to wrap channel clips

I took a glance at the example code, but I'm just getting into SG myself, so I didn't want to try to give a definitive answer.  That being said, I don't think what you want to do is possible with a RowList.  If you're wanting to have separate categories on one screen the way they do ("Global Is...

Re: Problem with the PlayerTask

You can't have 2 files in your source directory with the same function (init in your case). Perhaps you meant to have them in the components directory.

Re: Package keys

That's about it except that the key is generated in the first place by running genkey when you Telnet to port 8080.  It's genkey that produces the key and password pair.  Is that handled by your deployment script?  If so, make sure every time your deployment script runs it's not generating a new key...

Re: Package keys

I use git for my source control, but you can use pretty much anything.  You don't really need to keep the zip if you're good about source control, but I still like to keep the zip after each time I publish since I'm not real good about committing things in git at the appropriate times and it's just ...

Re: Package keys

Keep the package (.pkg file) you downloaded from your Roku device and the password. With those two things you can rekey any device in the future when you need to update your channel. You'll probably want to keep the .zip file that went with the .pkg file (if you're not using some kind of version con...

Re: Has anyone else stopped getting test ads?

So they're claiming the fact that their test ads aren't being displayed is your problem? What's up with that?!
