Re: after linking, next HTTP request fails

That sounds really promising...I do proceed with the roPosterScreen which is my main UI *after* linking. I'll reorder that execution and see where that puts me. Thanks again Joel, very helpful, as always. I'll confirm my results once I test. ** update ** that was it...I had not top level screen bein...

Re: after linking, next HTTP request fails

So it turns out the problem is in returning from doRegistration...the app exits when doRegistration returns 0 indicating success. The next step in the calling method, in appHomeScreen, executes but the Roku is already showing the Roku home screen...

Do I need to garbage collect or close a screen?

after linking, next HTTP request fails

I have tried the get with retry and get with timeout, and it looks like after a successful link the second call to a second URL is unable to execute. My web service gets the HTTP request and completes but the application has exited by then. I've put in tons of debugging print statements and the seco...

Just published - but need to give test account

I just released my channel for approval, but the tester will need an account on my site and to link their device. How do I share that information with the tester?

Re: Live stream only plays every few attempts

For the source encoder I am using a DVEO GearBox, it is a Linux appliance with loads of flexibility but not much in the way of documentation. It takes source video and streams to wowza in a number of formats, I'm using RTMP since wowza is optimized for that. I have a few output streams configured so...

Re: Live stream only plays every few attempts

The "minimum-adaptation" took the fewest retrys to eventually play, and changing the SD/HD seems to have no impact on that issue. None of the 3 made it play the first try, the default setting was the least successful so it sounds like I have alignment issues. I was looking at the encoder a...

Re: Live stream only plays every few attempts

This should be an SD stream off the source, but I'll confirm that. I do have the following set in my Roku app, and I'll adjust to make sure the source is in fact SD, as I has assumed. Could that cause the issue I'm seeing or is that more to eliminate potential issues and follow best practices? item....

Live stream only plays every few attempts

Apologies if this has been covered before, but there are a number of factors at play so I've had a difficult time searching. I have a SD live stream coming from a Wowza 3 EC2 instance. It plays fine on iOS, Android, and Flash on the web and uses an authentication token as a query string parameter on...

Re: Will a live feed go to sleep on its own?

I broadcast live programming, currently with no DVR support. I've settled on a schema by which I shut down the video if: > 2 hours pass no buttons have been pressed it is on the hour, so likely a commercial break or between programs We'll see how the customers like it. The other option is to stream ...

Re: Will a live feed go to sleep on its own?

Thanks for the speedy response!

So in addressing this, presumably its up to me to manage a timer and reset it when the user clicks a button and eventually expore that timer and tell the user to press a button to continue...

Anyone else dealt with this and have a more elegant solution?

Will a live feed go to sleep on its own?

I'm about to launch a handful of live channels and I don't want to pay for bandwidth when someone has turned off their TV and gone to bed without pressing the Home button. WIll the device go to sleep on its own when a live stream is still streaming, and if so what setting and operations dictate the ...
