Re: SDK Revenue Split AdUrl ?

The bottom line is that I doubt the URL has anything to do with it. Until your channel gets entered into some database, you're not getting paid.

Re: SDK Revenue Split AdUrl ?

It's probably not the AdUrl that's the problem.  I use the same URL for all my channels (I think it's the default, but I'd have to double check).  When I added RAF to one of my existing channels, I expected it to just get picked up automatically.  That didn't happen.  Someone at Roku has to "th...

Re: PGS subtitles to something Roku can recognize (not srt files)

There has to be a way to take the datastream and maybe do a two-step conversion -- first to srt format and then to something that Roku can handle and still have it in the MKV container. Once you have the SRT in an MKV container, you're done.  While I've never bothered to include it in an MKV contai...

Add the router now. I think the key point is that Basil has a router and the OP doesn't.

Re: Registry not cleared after removing channel

Unfortunately, I think "tough luck" is the answer. It's not likely the current behavior will ever be changed because there's probably as many reasons for it as against it.

Sorry,

Re: Registry not cleared after removing channel

Fixing what? Tyler already gave the solution if you're signing multiple apps/channels with the same key. You have to remove them all (and reboot, I believe) to clear the registry. If you don't like this behavior, then always generate a new key for every channel you develop.

Re: Subs/mp4

I think you have to use mkv if you want to include srt in the container.  Otherwise, just put the subtitles in a .srt file with the same name as the mp4 (e.g., Some Movie.mp4 and Some Movie.srt).

Re: Eclipse Error When Sideloading

Why don't you try uploading the zip that Eclipse created using the web interface built into the Roku? At least you'd know whether or not it's really a problem with the zip.

Re: Install Query is not working

I've never tried to install a channel like this, but are you trying to re-install the exact same code? I don't think will work. At least if you try to side-load the same code, nothing happens. Perhaps that's what's happening here.

Re: What's a Roku for ? (seriously!)

You need a TV. It will not connect to your PC, but could possibly connect to the monitor if it has an HDMI input. You may want to regift it if you have no need for a TV. If you use your PC for your entertainment needs, then a Roku won't really do anything for you. Most of what's available on Roku is...

Re: Roku 4 stuck in endless reboot loop !

You didn't do the factory reset properly. With it plugged in, hold in the reset button for at least 30 seconds ignoring anything happening on the screen.

Re: Roku 3 - Wired Ethernet far slower than WiFi for me

They all have meaning, but the last is probably the best indication of the speed you can get to your Roku.  Maybe I should have just reported one number like the browser based version.  The other transfers show just how the size of the file (or chunk of data when streaming) affects throughput.  Larg...
