Re: Watch TCM ?

Trying to watch either of the two live streams tonight, and the channel keeps quitting to the Roku home screen. Any of the on-demand movies stream fine. Anyone else experiencing this?
BTW ..... the Android TCM app works without a hitch.

Re: Password insanity...

The minor annoyance in having to re-authenticate and re-activate your TVE channels is never going to go away. Can you blame the content providers for trying to prevent the illicit harvesting of their properly? And trying to outguess the algorithms that determine when your credentials timeout is near...

Re: [Official] OS 9 Release Notes

Finally some product development from Spotify . They have ONLY been promising us something since December 22nd of last year. This might just be a case of too little, too late ..... since casting usually works like a charm, and even the cheapest HTR with app support has Spotify and Pandora and iHeart...

Re: TNT: No Sign In

Same exact symptom for me. I had never bothered with the TBS or the TNT channels before this afternoon. Just installed TNT, accepted the TOS, but the radio button to authenticate with my cable provider is unresponsive.

Re: Private SpeedTest Channel ..... what happened?

This is perhaps a consequence of the hyper-vetting of the private channel marketplace that began in earnest after the Roku IPO.  It's understandable, given the sleazy, piratical nature of some of the content scraping that was occurring among some of the private channels.  This stuff was barely skirt...

Hmm... I certainly didn't update it.  What version number does it show when you highlight the channel on the main screen and press the asterisk button?

It displays version 1.0, build 103.  Roku advised me that the channel updated when I forced a manual update check.

Private SpeedTest Channel ..... what happened?

I see that the private SpeedTest channel updated today, and now it no longer functions. It shows as an "out of service" channel.  Has it been "delisted"  or "decertified?" Did it somehow violate developer terms of service, or did it represent a security vulnerability to...

Re: What happened to the official NASA Television channel?

NASA Television was the "certified" public channel, available in the channel store for a while now.  The developer is listed as CMG (don't know who that is). It showed the two NASA streams with no commercial breaks.  It now just splashes information on InstantTVChannel.com, which is a cha...

What happened to the official NASA Television channel?

All you get now for the two feeds is a splash add for InstantTVChannel.com.
