Re: My new channel - feedback requested - trying to get appr

Lets assume for the sake of argument, that it was not rejected because of the "your boss blows" description. - On SDTV, the subtitle is so long that it is cut off on both left and right sides. - the home screen icon needs to be reduced in size (but not in dimension) slightly so that their ...

Re: Audio dropouts when remote buttons clicked -- Suspected

Problem goes away if you turn off the Roku system sound effects.

PS: SubsonicTV, the original Subsonic Client for Roku, accept no Substitutes!

Re: End Channel every # of days.

at start of your program, create a global timer variable, for example: m.timer=createobject("rotimespan") m.timer.mark() m.days=5 There are various ways to implement the above, for instance, if you are using a more object oriented approach to your programming, you may want to include the t...

Re: About Menu

In my Musiclouds channel, there is an about category, which has a "thanks" section, and an "about me" section which links to all the recordings I have on Soundcloud. Both the About items are poster items.

Re: multi-language apps?

Basically, the only roku components that support true international character sets are the roImageCanvas and the roScreen, and roScreen is the only one that is certain. The other components, to my knowledge, only support ASCII. You need to load you own TTF or OpenType font to handle languages, and w...

Re: roAudioResource questions/issues

What I do if a file wont pl The one for which invalid was returned was only 60k. I was hoping for an official response from someone at Roku. I really don't feel like experimenting and no matter how you look at it GetMetaData is just plain flawed. -JT Hey, JT, i am just attempting to be helpful. Emai...

Re: roAudioResource questions/issues

Other considerations:

Currently seems to be a limit of about 250k file size for roAudioResource. If you get invalid while calling an roAudioResource, try making it shorter in length.

Re: Display an image

Thanks for the help YungBlood, But I have another question: How would I make the image transparent? I'm using a png with transparency, but there's still a black box around the image. By the way, is there any information about roscreens in the documentation? Use screen.setalphaenable(true) for an im...

Re: roAudioPlayerEvent undocumented event type 10

Hmm. Well, if you are streaming a set of songs, you would generally use a playlist file, like a .m3u file. The roku would get the playlist file, and extract the paths to each url in the file and then create an array of songs. Then you add this to the audioplayer using audioplayer.setcontentlist Then...

Re: roAudioPlayerEvent undocumented event type 10

Typically, a buffer underrun might indicate your server isn't serving data fast enough. There might be other considerations, such as how your server is responding to http range requests, and if the server is providing accurate range header information.
