Re: Roku remote fails when WiFi is on

Try getting an HDMI extender; you may be getting interference: https://my.roku.com/hdmi

Also, is your WiFi AP's channel set to "auto" or something similar? If so, try setting it to an explicit channel. Experiment; one channel may be better than others.

Re: Remote Control Needed?

Sometimes using the channel up/down buttons will change inputs once you get to the highest/lowest channel. I have a Samsung TV here somewhere (just moved), so I'll try to dig it out and check. However, I doubt your father would want to use the buttons on the TV to change inputs. What's he using now?...

Re: wrong remaining time on player progress bar

Did you try setting m.video.duration manually to see if it's reflected on the progress bar?

Re: Browser app

I have no experience with browsers on Roku, but you're first point of contact should probably be partnersuccess@roku.com

Re: Roku Model:4640X Black screen after reboot. Roku Ultra

You don't need a 4k TV (in fact, you probably don't want to hook it up to one). Dale is suggesting you connect it to any other TV and it should default to auto-detect and then you should be able to connect it back to the original TV.

Re: Sizing a Poster from a larger image

Have you tried adding ui_resolutions=hd to your manifest?  You should be able to just design for HD and let the firmware handle scaling for other resolutions.

Re: Roku Ultra Standby Mode?

I believe the LED being off is merely an indication that a screen saver is active and is not an indication of any kind of low power mode (if such a thing exists).

Re: Spectrum app on Roku Express Plus closes when selecting a channel

Sounds like a bug in the Spectrum app. I know nothing about it, but I'm wondering if there was a recent update to the app. It appears that it's crashing if the Roku display settings are set to one of the SD options. Your best bet is probably to take it up with Spectrum.

Re: Dash format videos not properly grabbing duration

I know nothing about PlayReady, DASH, or MPDs, but I'd be willing to bet that video.duration should be an integer representing the duration in seconds.  1.844674407371e+16 seconds is many, many, millennia.

Re: Double Draw Solo Poker "Yer Killin' Me!"

You're welcome!  And Merry Christmas to you!

By the way, you should really direct your thanks/frustration at Matt and Mark. It's their game; I only coded it for the Roku.

Re: annoying display at the bottom of whatever I'm watching.

It's coming from your TV, not the Roku. At least post the model of your TV, Roku, and how you have them connected.

Re: Referencing function in non-component module from another non-component module

I would have to also include http.brs explictly like so?  <script type = "text/brightscript" uri="pkg:/source/http.brs"/> <script type = "text/brightscript" uri="pkg:/source/api.brs"/> I believe that is the only way to do it. -JT

Re: Task XML Blocks

My understanding of how tasks operate is limited at best and I've only used the control field to start a task (setting it to "RUN").  I assume you're trying to use the third development use case: ⋅ A Task node observes its input <interface> fields using the port form of the ifSGN...

Re: Task subroutine

afaik you should put the sub in a separate file (eg "mySubs.brs") and include it from your task's XML; something like: <script type="text/brightscript" uri="pkg:/source/mySubs.brs" /> Ah, that's it!  Sorry greubel.  I knew I was calling subroutines in other source file...
