Re: Developer portal pain points?

I just spent some time in the portal, so let me start my ran... I mean list my suggestions.  :-) ⋅ First (and maybe foremost), the background.  It literally gives me a headache.  Does it really need to be #FFF?  It can't be toned down a little bit?  It might not be so bad if there wasn't s...

Re: How do I rewind in the Amazon Video channel?

I don't use Amazon, but can you use the UP arrow button to highlight the thumbnail and then press OK? Warning: that may exit the video entirely.  It sounds like a poorly designed user interface to me.

Re: Roku App Wifi interference

I'm not sure what's going on, but I think you'll find it easier to figure out if you have a working remote. Get a cheap universal remote that says it supports Roku. I'm pretty sure you can find them for less than 10 bucks.

Re: Roku 3 Remote Code

The real question is given the number of people that have asked for a way to disable this "feature" (disabling the audio when headphones are plugged into the remote), why isn't there a setting under Audio settings to enable/disable it? Or better yet, why does this "feature" exist...

Re: Alternative to Roku Media Player

Nothing will play a movie from USB that isn't in a supported format (generally MP4). You either have to re-enode everything if you insist on using USB or use a server that offers on-the-fly transcoding (like Plex).

Sorry,

Re: Roku 3 - Award Winning Design

4. No consumer would want to try any Roku model, especially the newer ones, when (a) the newer models provide more RAM but still have micro SD card slots to increase channel memory storage for a reason; (b) none of those provide any list of compatible cards either. RAM has nothing to do with channe...

I don't know anything about the ShareCenter, but can you get it to rebuild its database?

Re: RAF Version, how to update?

The string returned by GetVersion has evolved over the years.  I was going to point the OP to the GetVersion docs to show how the RAF version string jived with the GetVersion firmware version string, but it no longer does.  It used to be that GetVersion would return version 7.7 as "7.07". ...

Re: Certain MKV not playing

There's nothing obvious to me, but I'm certainly no expert. Did they ever work on your Roku? Can you give a link to a video that doesn't work? Roku will occasionally request people to upload problem videos, but you have to get their attention somehow.

Re: Roku 7.7 software issues

I don't have the option to downgrade either, but memoryleak was trying to state that the whole Secret Screen is gone. That's not true.

Re: Roku 7.7 software issues

On my Premier + (4630X 7.70 build 4117-29) , using the button presses sequence you've listed, secret menu does NOT pop up. Tried several times, restarted Roku box too. I believe I'm not the only person reporting same. It's my humble (and often times wrong) opinion, that the option has been removed ...

Re: Is it possible to have set up optional Function parameters?

I assume you really mean "optional", not just a parameter with a default value, although I can't really see the difference. Sub mySub(parm1 as String, parm2=invalid)   if parm2 <> invalid then      'do something   end if   'do more stuff End Sub mySub("hello") mySub("hello&q...
