Re: Brightscript logging and error handling

Might be a dumb question but... If you wrote an app that downloaded an external file to a string or tmp:/ (containing code) that was then processed using Eval/Run, could that app even pass QA for a public channel? There would be no way to test the future downloaded code to ensure it met standards an...

Re: Internet vs Roku: on hardening world's dumbest 1761 Roku

I can see cases where external ECP could be useful, but can't see where external key press pushing would be. If that was limited to local subnet only wouldn't that solve the reboot (annoying) and factory reset (catastrophic) issues?

Re: Channel Submission

Turns out we got the email on the general company account we registered our Roku account on, but we were watching the admin and technical contact (individual) emails instead. So we know we're in the queue now and that's all we can ask for till our turn comes up for testing.

Channel Submission

We submitted our channel, FlixRaider, for publishing about 2 weeks ago. We know it takes time due to the backlog, and that's not a problem, but our understanding was we'd receive an email acknowledging the submission, and requesting a copy of the pre-publishing checklist. We haven't submitted before...

Re: Channel Pre-release

We submitted the channel for review and since we want the FlixRaider code to be for the public channel, we changed our dev channel to FlixRaiderDev. Thanks for everyones help in testing and reviewing the channel, and a special thanks to EnTerr and TheEndless.

Re: Get the unique values in array

My first thought would be load them into an associative array as the keys, which enforces unique values. You could check for existence first and not add duplicates, or just go ahead and add them (using addreplace), which just becomes a replace. Either way you then walk the keys (for each) and have t...

Re: Channel Pre-release

That's easy to address by adding "play all" item as first or last in each category list. Bonus: it will function as a marker to know when i have side scrolled to the whole list and am wrapping around. We did exactly that late last week. Here is something else i observed the previous week ...

Re: Channel Pre-release

If anyone else if using Vimeo Pro like we are, and manually parsing the redirects, we were being redirected up to last week to a standard URL (iirc), and everything was working great. Sometime Friday it looks like some (or all) of our videos were being redirected to a SSL version of the same URL, in...

Re: How long is your code?

Our FlixRaider channel is right about 3,000 lines, with various text file contents (about us, announcements, etc.) stored externally, so the 3,000 lines is pretty much just code. But a third of that is probably deserialization routines in the data access layer, so maybe 2,000 lines of actual operati...

Re: Channel Pre-release

A few changes... The intro was messing up on some players and 'should' do better now. The ads no longer play, we got enough tracking information to know they were spacing correctly, and have been disabled until release. An announcement screen that normally would show only once to a device (until cha...

Re: Bugs in Roku SDK Documentation

Never noticed that option, will defiantly take a look it at, just a nice backup doc to have.

Channel Pre-release

We have been working for the past months on our channel (FlixRaider) to review lesser known but worthwhile titles from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and soon HBO Now. We're getting ready to submit to the public store (which we know will take a while) but wanted to get the thoughts of any of you who'd want ...

Re: Bugs in Roku SDK Documentation

Are the PDF's mentioned in Enterr's original post
RokuSDK/documents/*.PDF
still available somewhere for download so we have something to access when with the proxy server errors start acting up?

Re: Roku device charles set up

OK, that was what I was thinking about, but you have a point that 200 or so bytes certainly isn't "complete detail". Still depending on need it might work, definitely helped me when I was dealing with debugging ECP launching and a M3U8 web server routine.
