Re: Right-to-left (RTL) Languages Support

Without seeing the actual test display, source text and resulting full text, I can simply suggest - assuming that there is a space between each letter and two or three spaces between words now in the resulting produced output - A) run your routine as you have it now B) take the resulting returned st...

Re: Do not understand deep linking requirement

Not too strange - with all the coverage of streaming services and hardware under attack to police pirated content, the ability for Roku to go in and view anything on any channel without needing to look for it makes perfect sense to me.  Also if you ever do want to implement global search on the Roku...

Re: Architectural best practices

Why would you have 50 screens?  Would the end user have to go through all 50 of them to do one thing? Generally you have layers, and four or 5 actual screens, where the content is simply changed as needed when they are displayed.  If you are linking the device with full account and billing interacti...

Re: "Missing or invalid PHY"

That would be a notice about a missing thumbnail image.  If you have a graphic resource like HDPosterURL or SDPosterURL set to anything beside 'invalid', or to an inaccessible url then you will get those.  It could also be reported for the overhang url images or some other image, but typically it wi...

Re: How to Scroll Focused Rowlist Label Text

You should be able to set the default "repeatcount" to 0 so they will all be set to not scroll, and then set to -1 for the focused list after display.  Alternately set the "scrollspeed" to 0. https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/ScrollingLabel One of those two should do what y...

Re: Appear to focusing on the 2nd item of a RowList??

Basically you want to set the "focusXOffset" for the rowlist.  Try setting the offset to half of your hdposter thumbnail width.
focusXOffset="[135]"

Re: Add a custom element at the end of rowlist

Sure - create a node, append it to the content list before setting the content for the rowlist.  Don't forget to add a check for that special appended item when selected.

Re: Invalid archive when attempting to download channel package

Although the "Download package File" is given a zip extension when downloaded, it's really the pkg file.  So you won't be able to unzip that.  The header is "Roku Channel PakV 2.0" instead of "PK".  If Roku is going to help, that is what you need.  Otherwise you need to...

Re: label = Substitute(...) Error?

If the code works sideloaded in Roku without any errors then yes, I think eclipse isn't updated to return the correct status.

Re: label = Substitute(...) Error?

Indexes begin at 0.  So try 
label = Substitute("Watch Now {0}", "$1.99")

Re: Static Analysis Error: Package size exceeds 4 megabytes

In my experience, I'd delete the zip and make a new one, making sure any hidden files are removed before uploading.  (Thumbs.DB I'm looking at you!)

Re: Ecommerce platform possible?

I agree Joe.  Although Roku wants to make their 20% off each in-app purchase as opposed to Stripe's and Paypal's 2.9% + $0.30 for the same charge.  I think there would still be some leeway if you sold prepaid credits on your website or offered subscriptions on other platforms that would port to Roku...

Roku3 loading thumbnails from the bif server works.  And I suppose we will never learn why this absolutely had to be changed in the firmware?
