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.

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

Do you have a link to a sample SRT file that doesn't work? I don't use Plex, but I've been using SRTs for years without a problem. Since it's the underlying firmware that handles the display of subtitles, it shouldn't matter what channel is used for streaming.

Re: Which codecs are passed-through by Roku Media Player?

Make sure your Roku 2 XS audio settings are not set to "Stereo". I wondered why my mother's Roku 2 XS had the same problem and when I switched from "Stereo" (I believe to "Auto", but can't remember for sure) she started getting the 5.1 AC-3 tracks to play. There's "...

Re: "game" manifest entry

 Does it make it so looped roAudioPlayer music stays in memory instead of reloading when looped?  I don't know, but I don't think it has anything to do with that.  I think it has more to do with ensuring audio and video remain in sync, which, judging from comments in the general forum, seems to be ...
