Re: How Do I Start Developing a Channel?

Did you install via the instructions on the Blog: https://blog.roku.com/developer/2016/04/20/roku-eclipse-plugin/ That should get you the latest plugin. When you create a new project you have the option to select some scenegraph templates. Note that you might have to stretch the dialog box to see ev...

Re: EPG Grid Documentation

EPG Grid docs were removed due to intellectual property issues surrounding the EPG Grid.

I suggest you use SceneGraph to create a screen of your own unique design to convey schedule information to your users.

Re: Is offering a free app with an upgrade (using doUpgrade()) still allowed?

come there is no notice to that extent in the documentation? :oops:I um err. uh... :oops: we axed it as part of reworking the developer agreements near the end of last year. It should still work for existing channels - I think we simply axed the settings that allow this to be configured from the de...

Re: Is offering a free app with an upgrade (using doUpgrade()) still allowed?

I'm not sure if it is still possible to implement this in a channel, but we definitely don't want developers to use this functionality. We want you to use in-app subscription products instead, and the free trial model works quite well as a replacement for this functionality, though you can also have...

Re: Roku Billing Push Notifications - Stopped without Warning

This checkbox is checked if your endpoint gets blacklisted for not responding to push notifications. After 10 days and 100 push messages failed (at least that is how it is supposed to work) there will be an automatic blacklist. Some people have been affected without seeing the checkbox because they ...

Re: Prebuffer Not Honoring Start Position

Looks like this is a 7.2 bug, a fix has been checked in, so the fix should hopefully show up in a future release.

Re: help change audio does not work

I don't believe we have a solution at this time, there will likely be solution to the .MKV issue in a future firmware release, but if you are using HLS, that is a separate issue which I have a bug filed for, if you are using .mp4, files i'm not aware of an issue affecting those.

Re: How to set the Font

roAppManager can control the color of the system font in some pre-Scenegraph components, but not the font itself. If you really want to set a font you would need to use SceneGraph, roScreen or roImageCanvas screen types and load a .TTF or .OTF font in your app or download it to tmp:/ before instanti...

Re: No Audio on our streams

What is the audio format of the stream? AAC? MP3? If AAC, what kind of AAC? (HE, LC etc). Is this HLS, live streamed or is it MP4 VOD or HLS VOD? If HLS, what does the playlist file look like?

If possible, send me a stream URL via private message.

Re: ~2 seconds lost on front of HLS stream, delaying caption

Can you PM a URL of your stream, I will file a bug. You could also pm a dropbox link with a playlist and maybe 8 .ts files from the stream start if you can't keep a live url up for an extended period of time (weeks).
