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

Stupid me, I just realized I have the Flickr source code right here (assuming it's still accurate). They use a different scaling method than I'm using. I use "scale-to-fit" and they use "best-fit". I'm big on maintaining aspect ratio and "best-fit" may or may not mainta...

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

Now it appears that the only difference between the Flickr channel and MyMedia are the dimensions of landscaped photos. In Flickr they fill the entire screen of my TV (42" 1080P LCD), whereas in MyMedia they do not. I haven't made any direct comparisons to see if photos in Flickr are being cro...

Re: Inputting special characters like newline into strings

Thanks, but I was looking for something more like this:

Pitcher:      Jim Palmer
Catcher:      Elrod Hendricks
1st Base:     Boog Powell
3rd Base:     Brooks Robinson

Because of the proportional font used on that screen, there's no way to line up the second part perfectly.

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

Running Photo2 now - no issues to report - looks good!! Love the config options as well. Now I just have to go through my photo library and rotate all those sideways photos :) Is it possible to implement a rotate/flip button on images or is that outside the capabilties of the Brightscript client (o...

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

Renojim is working on adding some configuration options to the channel so you can change things like the slideshow delay time. I expect that will be ready soon. You got the first implementation of the "settings" screen, right? I should have a new feature ready to test sometime today. :D -JT

Re: Keyboard Screen title color

We do not currently have the ability to set the color of the Keyboard screen title. That's too bad; the default color looks really bad on my background. I thought one of the breadcrumb colors would work. The BreadcrumbDelimiter attribute was misspelled in the docs and is working when you change 'e'...

Keyboard Screen title color

The Breadcrumb left or right colors don't have any effect on the title displayed in the upper right of the Keyboard Screen via the SetTitle function. Is there any way to change the color from the default? While I'm at it, the BreadcrumbDelimeter theme attribute doesn't have any effect on the little ...

Re: Inputting special characters like newline into strings

It doesn't appear that tabs are supported? At least on the Paragraph Screen.

roSlideShow flawed?

After spending several days going through the examples, analyzing the events that are triggered by the roSlideShow component, and digging through tcpdump logs, I have to question whether the roSlideShow component is flawed. From my analysis, here's what the slide show component does: When the slide ...

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

That did the trick. In researching it a bit more, I found this: Glad to hear it! It's worked on all of my videos, but I sometimes have audio sync issues that I think weren't there when I encoded in the original framerate. http://trac.handbrake.fr/wiki/FramerateGuide The trailing 'e' was missing on ...

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

I'd love to hear suggestions from other people about what settings they've used to encode to work around this issue. Let me know what info I can provide (and how to provide it) from my server or the Roku to anyone developing this to see if they can reproduce it. Try encoding at 29.97fps and let me ...

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

cmcnulty, -LD, hebertj0194 and any others, How long are the videos that you've encoded with Handbrake using the settings you've described? Any of them longer than 1 hour? What source are you encoding from? I've tried just about every setting in Handbrake, and all the movies (DVD/VIDEO_TS source) I'...

Re: Hierarchy of Poster screens

Tommy, You got it. I should have returned here earlier, I could have saved a few hours. It only took all day for it to dawn on me. You have to create new screens as you navigate down your hierarchy and keep track of them in an array or whatever. When the Up button is pushed, you'll get the isScreenC...
