Re: Packaging with genkey and Roku account question

Is the important detail that the app will need to be packaged (or rekeyed) on a box with the correct Dev Id and password and that the Roku account on the box has no bearing of where that app can be installed? ^^^ That As long as you rekey the box using a previous package and the appropriate passwor...

Re: Screengraph and AsyncGetToFile

I can't say what may or may not be wrong with what you're doing, but see tim_beynart's excellent tutorial (especially Lesson 3) for an example of async requests in a task.

Are you trying to add ETVNET? If so, give up.

Re: Remote stopped pairing

I seem to recall people having issues with these WiFi direct remotes not pairing having some success by disabling (unplugging) their WiFi router and then power cycling the Stick. It's worth a try.

Re: Really weird problem: All but one or two remote buttons not responding

I've taken apart many Roku remotes and they've all snapped together (with maybe one screw in the battery compartment), but they are a pain to get apart.

To the OP, use your digital camera (phone) to see if you can see the IR LED on the remote flash when you press a button.

Re: How to use roMicrophone in Roku development?

I played with this for a little while and had minimal success.  I'm not sure it's worth pursuing.  I was able to use RecordToFile to record short clips, but most times it recorded nothing and when it did record something it was very short (a second or less) and just cut off whenever it wanted to.  I...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Thanks, I'll take a look. There was a "high contrast" theme created a while back that should be in the "themes" directory that you might want to look at.

Re: How to use roMicrophone in Roku development?

I haven't used it (didn't even know it existed), but you need to set a message port on the roMicrophone object: mic.SetMessagePort(m.port)

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Themes have been supported for a while, but it's been so long that I almost forget how it's accomplished.  :-)  I've always hated the bright backgrounds, so I've been using a dark theme forever.  Try saving this to colors.xml in your "client/images" directory: <?xml version="1.0"...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

The squares and the stretching are part of the channel code; it's a bit unfortunate.  I wouldn't say it's not possible to modify the Python server code to "pre-distort" the posters, but it's better handled in the channel code.  My heavily modified personal version of the channel uses portr...

Re: trouble with resume on amazon prime

In general, don't use the home button to exit a channel. It's akin to pressing the reset button on a computer. The channel gets no warning and no chance to save any information. It may be ok sometimes, but often will not be.

Re: Roku 2 4205EU Streaming Media

Try a factory reset. Locate the reset button and hold it down for at least 30 seconds ignoring anything happening onscreen.

Re: I can connect on 8080 but I can see anything in Debug 8085

Since you said you're pretty new, pardon me if I'm being too basic. First, the Development Application Installer has to be enabled on your device.  I'm not sure what, if anything, you'd see when connecting to port 8085 if it's not enabled.  If the installer is enabled, you should be able to point a ...

Re: Trying to log a Roku 3 into my WLAN, but couldn't find the exclamation point anywhere in the onscreen keyboard.

I think you have CAPS lock turned on (the box in the upper right with the upward pointing arrow). Turn that off and you'll see the !. They really should turn that off when you change between character sets.
