Re: Port-Forwarding for WAN Control?

There is a lot of Harmony talk in the link you sent; I would like to not have to introduce Harmony at this point.  Is it needed to do the above Alexa bundling? No need to have a Harmony (or even any need to know anything about one).  The project originally used the Harmony Hub in conjunction with t...

Re: Port-Forwarding for WAN Control?

I have not given up on Plan A.  I plan to look to see if I can use one of my PCs to respond to the WAN request and translate it to a HTTP LAN request -- a mini-server-ish kind of thing.  This should provide the Roku with something from the LAN (right?). Figuring it out my be over my head, if so, th...

Re: Port-Forwarding for WAN Control?

It won't work because ECP commands are only accepted from the LAN. There's a Roku skill that may already do what you want: https://www.amazon.com/Roku/dp/B07KCPWH27

Re: Roku TV - No Option/Setting to Use Optical Audio?

Have you ever used an optical connection before? I ask because I know the first time I connected something using an optical cable I got nothing and it turned out I wasn't inserting the cable far enough. I believe it's normal for the optical output to always be active on any TV. Does the optical outp...

Re: Roku subscription currency

I didn't know about that option; must be relatively new. As far as I know, Roku supports US dollar, Canadian dollar, British pound, and Euros. There may be others (probably all of the currencies of supported countries), but those are the ones I've received in the past.

Re: Transfer Roku Channel

You need the original password generated when genkey was run. Since you have access to the Roku account, you can download the last package file. Using that and the original password, you can rekey your development box so that new packages will be keyed to the existing password/key. If you don't have...

Re: Transfer Roku Channel

I just went through this. Contact partnersuccess at roku.com and they should send a form requesting the required information. Hopefully you have the support of the current developer. Keep in mind that any information stored in a user's registry is tied to the Dev ID used to package the channel. You'...

Re: Replacement remote for 3500X streaming stick

Set your new WiFi up just like the old WiFi - same SSID and password. The stick should connect and you can use the remote app again.

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

That's good to hear! I'm guessing you've been updated to v9.1 of the firmware? I haven't received it yet.

Re: Changing language preferences on ultra

Try this:
Press Home a couple of times then press Up - that should get you to Settings.
Press Right, Up, Right, and then Down 4 times - that should get you to Language.
Press Right and then choose English.

Hope this helps (works)!

Just to clarify, the update didn't have anything to do with the public version failing.  Believe me, I'll blame Roku when they're responsible, but this time it wasn't them.  :D

Re: Screen Saver Weather Time missing weather?

Did you try the private version? https://my.roku.com/add/CLOCPRI

The Channel Store version may remain broken for a while until I rewrite it using the new SDK. The issue is so minor I'm not sure why weather.gov has a problem with the request for data, so it may start working again.

Re: Screen Saver Weather Time missing weather?

Thanks, but that's not necessary.  Some things I do as much for myself as for anything else.  I couldn't tell you how much time I've spent just watching the time/weather bouncing around the screen. :D
