Re: Display number of ads during ad breaks

My interpretation is that you would be exempt from this requirement.  It specifically states "ads requested client-side", which is not the case for stitched streams.  That said, Roku themselves have the official say.

Re: Subscription Channel...uh oh

For those who want a subscription feature, please get in touch.  I'm working on an RDP-compatible SDK-based solution which could add these features.  I'd love to gather common use cases since SVOD can be implemented in a number of different ways.

Re: How to test store purchases on side loaded channel?

From https://blog.roku.com/developer/testing ... g-products

This new feature makes it easier to test channels integrated with Roku Standard Billing in a side-loaded channel by providing access to the developer console for debugging and logging real purchases against the Roku Channel Store.

Re: Roku Google Analytics Library Error

GetPublisherId should be updated to use GetChannelClientId in order to work beyond Jan 2019.  I've added an issue to update the library but the update is subject to available time.

Re: correct way to get the node name

The "id" of the node, usually set first in the XML, is available at m.top.id.  

If you mean the "type", such as RowList, ButtonGroup, use m.top.subtype()

Re: Channel with Many New Products Each Month?

Instead of creating a Roku in-channel product for each unique item, you could create one at each price point.  For instance, a $2.99 TVOD rental can be one product.  Then you use your own server to track which title was purchased.

Re: 9-patch button backgrounds

I use 9-patch images heavily.  Which component are you using and what field are you setting?  Button? ButtonGroup?  Maybe you can share the 9-patch image file you are using for your source.

Re: Are the closed captions broken in firmware 8.0?

What works for us with firmware 8.0 is:

tracks = [
    { description: "Track 1", trackname: srtUrl }
]
content.subtitleTracks = tracks
content.subtitleConfig = { trackname: srtUrl }

Re: 9 patch image used as focus ring overlaps poster

This appears to be an issue in the firmware with ui autoscaling and 9-patch images. Most channels I work with are only  ui_resolutions=fhd In this case, 9-patch images appear to not scale correctly for 720p UI so I always have to make multiple versions of the 9-patch images, then use: uri_resolution...

Re: How to change the focused postion of MarkupList

See if 'focusRow' works for you.  It's documented in ArrayGrid which should be a basis for MarkupList.

Re: Low End Device Crash during playback

Check 'free' for general system usage.  You can use 'bsc' and 'bcsc' on the console to find brightscript objects but it has to be within the scope of the component that you're interested... basically each component is like an isolated VM that can have its own memory usage so it's hard to see a globa...

Re: Low End Device Crash during playback

It takes some time before the video cache gets completely warmed up and reaching steady state.  If your app has a lot of memory used in brightscript then it may be causing this.  Do you happen to be using RAF?

Re: RAF custom buffer layer won't rotate.

Have you tried calling adIface.setAdBufferScreenLayer() after you change the TargetRotation?  

I notice in the roImageCanvas documentation that: "The screen is redrawn when SetLayer()is called."  Most likely you are changing the inputs but aren't triggering any rendering.
