Re: Roku Screensaver Input

I believe Roku has not yet exposed that billboard trick to us peons.
Screensavers run in their own thread, so the only way to swap any kind of data is write it to the registry, so the screensaver or the channel could read it.

Re: SetURL Not Setting URL

Just a guess, but .m3u8 is probably not a recognized extension. Try dropping it from the title and just use the channel var.  You actually don't need extensions when saving as far as the OS is concerned.

Re: How to skip an iteration in a FOR loop?

NEXT does not work for me  inside that if statement. Syntax error.

Re: SDK Wiki Pages?

FYI the line to whack this dead horse extends around the block. 
It's been obvious for years that there are no designers at Roku, but I see it's now a requirement for someone's niece/nephew the website vendors too.

Re: Can I add a channel to an account using API

It seems really unlikely, and might upset users. You could certainly email them a link to add it.

Re: Documentation Request For 1920x1080 roScreen

I just tried running a 1920x1080 roScreen on my old Roku 3 4200 with 9.1. It runs, but the location was off. The bottom of the roScreen ends about half way down the screen.

ETA runs as expected on my 4640.

Re: Ask channel users for ratings using Roku SDK or API

You would want to have a button that says "Rate this Channel!", then use ECP ( It's in the SDK docs ) to have the button link to your channel in the channel store, where the user can set the rating. I don't think there's any other way to access the ratings.

Re: Repeatable Roku CRASH - Delete channel while on screensaver

I bet you're right. I guess I'll just have to develop the habit of pressing something on the remote to exit any screensaver mode before deleting the channel. As an aside - I used to just upload the new version each time (to overwrite the existing version), but some time in the last year or two that...

Re: Repeatable Roku CRASH - Delete channel while on screensaver

I got the same result on a 4200. The channel is not a game but has an initial user screen.  I didn't get a message in VioletBug, but the tab went red so it crashed like yours, right away.
 It did not happen when I let my in-channel 2D API screensaver kick in.

Re: FRUSTRATED: Roku developer mode went away on my Ultra

No, you're conflating the two possible issues. Being able to access that page means Roku has not blocked you and disabled the box from their end.
Developer mode is turned on in the box itself.  Sounds like a router issue.
