Re: Free Roku 4 for established developers?

My guess is they had a closed beta for a few developers that they sent dev units to a few weeks ago so they could test it out and make sure there were no problems. I know for a fact that was the case with the Roku 2. I have no idea what the selection criteria entails, so it could be somewhat random....

Re: LibRokuDev JSON & RegWrite/Read error

Hey kbenson! Long time, no rearing of your head! Yeah, I lurk every few months with a few specific searches to see if I've been called out or anyone's mentioned any of my pet projects, but generally that doesn't happen often. ...but Roku contacted me recently re: RAF, and the numbers look interesti...

Re: LibRokuDev JSON & RegWrite/Read error

That's interesting. I think I'll actually be doing some work on the Roku in the near future, so I'll try to take a look and see what's happening and try to fix it. That said, if Roku now provides a native JSON serialization method, that's likely much better than the one implemented in librokudev, wh...

Re: What's the difference between roList and roArray?

As commentary, some of the corollaries will be: ⋅ Never loop over big roList with index access (for i=1 to a.count(): ... a[i] ... ) ⋅ In fact, don't use roList, except in a rare event that calls for it; e.g. queue (RemoveHead/AddTail) or dequeue ⋅ Don't use shift/unsh...

Re: Roku App Automation testing tools

Yeah, we implement a TAP library for testing, and used it for some of the other tools. For example: see https://github.com/rokudev/librokudev/blob/master/source/librokudev/source/tests/test_rdTAP.brs which is rdTAP testing itself, and https://github.com/rokudev/librokudev/blob/master/source/librokud...

Huh. I should really be more surprised about that than I am.

Re: Brightscript parameter reference

Efficient dissemination of changes/fixes/features in new firmware releases has always been a problem. At least they have a wiki now, so maybe they can make some use of it to help this.

Re: Changing From roImageCanvas to roScreen questions

Since 4.5 or so firmware, you can rotate to any angle. Hmm, then I guess I have some work to do, don't I? ;) I was actually testing this out the other day.. don't get your hopes up too high... ;) Also, still limited to 90 degree rotations on the Roku 1. Actually, I just checked some old email, and ...

Re: Changing From roImageCanvas to roScreen questions

It's worth noting (just in case you are using it) that rotation in roScreen is not equivalent to rotation in roImageCanvas. Last time I checked, roScreen could only rotate by 90 degree increments. P.S. We would *happily* write a compatibility library so you could use roScreen like roImageCanvas if r...

Re: PNG Encoder for Roku Proof of Concept

Somewhat off topic: ⋅  I'm getting warm fuzzies about all this. It's awesome that rdPNG has been of use since we put it out. ⋅  As requested originally (years ago), shift and xor operators/functions from Roku would help a lot. ⋅  The optimizations found are really inter...

Re: Another JSON Parser [JSONDecoder]

You're welcome to add my code to librokudev, and make any changes to it that you see fit. Let me know if there's anything I need to do to make that happen.
