Re: How to get Webservices API key

The API is for Roku's billing system.  If you sign up for Roku Billing you will get one.

Pirate content on Roku Channels?

Why isn't this mentioned anywhere on the Roku Forum or Roku site? "Users of the popular media player Roku receive a stark warning when they install channels outside of the official store. While these private or "non-certified" channels are still permitted, the company says that copyri...

Re: Roku 7.7 software issues

If it connects at the modem with an IP and channels work, then it's an issue with a device connected between the modem and the roku.  Check your settings, dhcp config, blocked QOS/mac IDs, router setup, etc.  When connecting the router/switches back up they get powercycled from the modem back to the...

Re: Roku 7.7 software issues

For all that hardware you have connected, I find it difficult to believe you can't troubleshoot this.  It won't get an IP if something else has it already.  Common troubleshooting suggestion would be to connect the roku directly hardwired to the modem, remove power from all the other devices and swi...

Re: Roku 7.7 software issues

I'll need to test a lot more - a whole lot more - before I am satisfied that it's working, but the 'change roku to 720p display mode' suggestion did allow me to watch an entire movie without issue.

Re: Roku 7.7 software issues

In the case where the roku crashes and reboots itself, is the crash dump log being sent to roku?

Re: Text Size Calculation issue FHD some models

Another humorous note - if you only specify "sd" in the manifest for ui_resolutions, then roku3 and roku4 will refuse to run the channel, when it would make more logical/practical sense for it to upscale from sd as needed for those.

Re: Text Size Calculation issue FHD some models

Yeah, I noticed that a few months ago - it's the suggested fix that was given on the forum.  Probably FHD isn't ready for prime time yet, as it also introduces alignment issues with the default overlays of some components and scaling of other components across devices (ie the pause timeline bar back...

Re: Roku 7.7 software issues

The true idiocy is Roku was advised this was happening and yet they force pushed the firmware live anyway.  I'm sure less than 2% of their users have roku set up for local streaming or plex - so it's an acceptable risk to them, but in that case they should make the official stance that this use is n...

Re: (L)GPL source code

Somebody wants money.  Wasn't the entire platform rewritten, not using any of the current GPL licensed codebase?

Re: Developer portal pain points?

There is no visible way to change the payment account routing/account number, or paypal address if you use paypal.  If an account is closed and it needs to be changed there isn't any way to edit that. When setting up items to purchase, it would save a lot of time if the system created the available ...
