Re: Roku's USB to ESP8266 NodeMCU to Get '/query/...'

can I access Roku data as used to be provided by ECP queries like '/query/apps' and '/query/active-app' via the Roku's USB port? I'm not sure what you're asking here.  Are you saying that previously you could access the data via the USB port and you can't now?  If so, I didn't know that was ever po...

Re: ToISOString() return wrong date time

There is no solution. The box doesn't have a battery backed-up RTC. I doesn't know the correct date/time until it establishes an Internet connection and contacts an NTP server. If your app can't operate without the correct time, you either have to wait for Internet connection to be established or ex...

Re: Catastrophic drop in ad impressions?

I'm guessing the "Roku Channel".

Re: How can I change a network password?

When you setup the connection, choose the "Private network" option at the bottom and type in your SSID. It will then ask if you use a password and allow you to erase the old one and put in the new one.

Re: Selected attribute

RALE communicates with the running channel directly using code found in the RALE component.  You could do something similar, but I don't think you'll get what you want using "sgnodes all".

Re: Issue in Roku 4 ultra

There's no such thing as "Roku 4 ultra". What's the actual model number? A purple screen often indicates some kind of copy protection (HDCP) problem or other HDMI connection issue.

Re: Roku phone app - port forwarding

Under Settings->System->Advanced system settings there's a "Control by mobile apps" setting. Try setting it to "Permissive".

Re: Selected attribute

You're connecting to the wrong port to do serious debugging/inspection.  You want to telnet to port 8085.  Press Ctrl-C or better yet put a stop statement in the code right after the place where the variables you're interested get used or initialized.  Then use:
?example.checkedState

Re: [Resolved] - Plex External Subtitles (.srt) files not displaying

Glad to see you got it figured out! I was going to ask a few more "dumb" questions and probably would have thought of that eventually. The "On replay" setting is actually nice for those who don't want the captions on all the time, but may want to go back a few seconds because the...

Re: Plex External Subtitles (.srt) files not displaying

Well, you might not like what I found. That sample worked fine for me using my own channel and own server. Pardon me for asking a stupid question, but you did unzip the downloaded file, right? Open your SRT file in any text editor and it should be readable. If it's full of garbage characters (except...

Those 2 links are the same. I'll take a look and see if it works for me.

I recommend one with a remote control to switch inputs. The automatically switching ones can work for you if your cable box turns off completely, but they are hit or miss.
