Re: On screen notification API for epc

I am bumping this up as I think this could be a huge thing for home automation systems to send out notifications via Rokus.

Re: ECP request: return search results

Just bumping this up. I think this could add a lot of great integrations for Roku.

Re: Request - Add Device state info in External Control API

I'm just bumping this.

Another great addition is for Roku Tvs to include the current Volume Level.

Re: Feature Requests - First Quarter 2018

I know it's like beating a dead horse, but:

Dolby TrueHD and DTS-MA passthrough.

I have a 4k TV with a 4K Roku, Why can't I access these HD audio formats?!?

Re: Netflix app double counts IR commands

After reading through these posts and trying the various work-arounds suggested, I found one that worked for me and might help others.  My Harmony 700 was doing the "skip" thing when I pressed the direction key using my Roku 3 XDS.  I also have another Roku device; the Roku 2 XS and it is...

Re: Netflix app double counts IR commands

I am getting this on one of my Rokus. You can no longer adjust the command repeat on the Harmony Hubs, so I can't adjust it there. However, this is only happening in Netflix and now Amazon. The Roku is on firmware 7.7 and I want to say I only started noticing it since we updated, but I can't be sur...

Re: Request - Add Device state info in External Control API

I agree this would be helpful. I could use this as well for my plugin for my home automation software.

However, none of my requests on this forum for the ECP have been acknowledged. I sincerely wish you good luck on this.

ECP request: return search results

Would it be possible if Roku could return the search results instead of just displaying them on-screen? I can see many great uses for this. For instance phone apps would have the ability yo to search on a Roku, display the results directly on the phone and then using deep linking allow the user to o...

On screen notification API for epc

Is there any chance that Roku will consider adding an API call for doing an on-screen notification? As our houses become more connected, this would be a great way to be notified of events. For instance in my house we get notifications to our phones and computers when the washer and dryer are done, s...

Re: Trademark usage

HA! My wife said almost the same exact thing (Meiku) That's kind of a good idea, but wasn't sure if it was still a "mashup" according to Roku. I have 4 rokus in my house and love them and hence why I wrote the plugin. I wanted to integrated it into my HA system and give others the opportun...

Re: Trademark usage

So, after reading more carefully through the trademark guildlines (), this part stuck out at me: You may not use any name or trademark confusingly similar to the Roku Design Marks or any other Roku Mark.  You may not use any Roku Mark in such proximity to any of your own trademarks or third party tr...

Trademark usage

I can't seem to find a way to contact Roku directly, so I will try asking here. I have written a plugin for my home automation software that I'm preparing to release which uses the External Control APIs. My preliminary name is "MeiliRoku" (which follows the theme of my other plugins of Mei...

Re: Problems with Playback in Plex since update to build 904

I have the same issues with my mkvs with embedded subtitles. Is there a timeframe for a fix? Forcing transcoding is working, but I think that is a poor workaround.
