Re: this error RegWrite help

<Component: roAssociativeArray> = {     contentid: 1006     position: "6.423" } RegWrite(aa.contentid, aa.position) As RokuNB mentioned, your key is a integer. Your registry key/value pair must be strings. In your specific case above, you could use the following to convert the integer to ...

Re: DTS Core no longer being passed

Roku does not officially support using the DTS core. It kind of worked on the older models, but it was dependent on the media (metadata) - usually issue was silent audio using the core. The new models will simply fail to play, not supported at all. As a general decision, we will transcode any DTS-HD...

Re: Roll out of OS 7.5.1 to Ultra, Premiere+, and Premiere has been suspended

I'm seeing people post about sync problems.  I'm not having any , at least with 7.5.1 build 4088-29 on my Ultra.

Re: Roll out of OS 7.5.1 to Ultra, Premiere+, and Premiere has been suspended

Here's an update to my post #38 about 7.5.1. It's now round 3 for 7.5.1 . It seems 7.5.1.4088 is available now only by manual update, but for me it's another major fail :( Just like 7.5.1.4086 did in my post #38, it causes DTS audio to be out of sync w/ the Premiere using the Plex channel (apparent...

Re: bookmarkPosition vs playStart in roVideoPlayer and roVideoScreen

@Roku can you confirm if we should be using `bookmarkPosition` or `playStart` to resume a video and allow seeking to any point. As mentioned above, we've always used `playStart`, but the current definition reflects that a dangerous choice.

bookmarkPosition vs playStart in roVideoPlayer and roVideoScreen

Both of these attributes definitions have been recently updated here , and it's a but concerning. We've always used PlayStart to resume a video, and allow seeking before that point. If I'm reading this right, it should be clipped now, but it actually isn't. We've looked into converting to `BookmarkP...

Re: P+ and Plex - Transparent Soft-Subtitles Issue

Still handling this issue in the Plex forums. We use some of the captions settings from the global Roku settings, but we handle drawing the subtitles within the channel, so it's outside of Roku's control. We'll investigate the issue to see if we can handle this better.

Night Listening Mode (get/set)

Is there a method to know if "Night Listening Mode" is enabled? This information would be useful to know why some audio decoders are not available. It would also be useful if we had the ability to change the mode within the app, without needing to play a video to change it. It would also b...

Re: Home Screen Icons

From my understanding, the channel icon used is the one you upload to the dev portal, and it only updates when your channel is published/approved. That means your private channel or private vanity code for public channels will update as soon as you publish. Public channel icons will update once your...

Re: roRegistry shared with development environment (7.5 firmware)

Still curious about the firmware versioning above, but it does look like a firmware version isn't needed. Simply checking C reateObject("roAppInfo").GetDevId() = "YOUR_DEV_ID" would indicate that the roRegistry is shared. Happy to have Roku confirm this, but I hav...

Re: roRegistry shared with development environment (7.5 firmware)

Thanks! I have one more question regarding the firmware version. It looks like something changed in the format, and I think it dates back to 7.1? https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/ifDeviceInfo#ifDeviceInfo-GetVersion()asString Returns the version number of the Roku Streaming Player firmware ru...

roRegistry shared with development environment (7.5 firmware)

I just noticed that firmware 7.5 b4099 shares the registry with standard channels if you have "keyed" your Roku. i.e. the registry is shared between the dev install and standard channel installs that use your dev key. I think I like it :) but it's caused a few oddities while developing.  1...

Re: Roku "Audio Guide" for visually impaired - in game!

It looks like the manifest has an additional option that may help, unless it does the same thing as roAppManager.SetAutomaticGuideEnabled.
