Re: How can developer test with different regions?

You would need to create a separate Roku User using an ip address from the region you are going to test - so you would, at least for the initial setup, need a VPN connection for each region you are targeting. Once an account is setup, devices linked to that account should be associated with that reg...

Re: roScreen Accepted Resolutions

Engineering says:

An RoScreen supports any resolution up to 1280×720.


Further, I will note that you should be able to set your roScreen to 1920x1080 on 4k capable devices and televisions.

Re: It wont display the channel

Well, I put your code into a project. I added a sub main() since that vital bit is missing from the code you shared. The code compiled without error. Something else must be wrong with your app. I even put sub main() createHomeworkHelperzMenu() end sub And that worked. There doesn't appear to be anyt...

Re: Roku's share email popup over Custom screen (roku 2)

Hi, it sounds like you are using roScreen. In that case I would try setting up and displaying an empty roimageCanvas screen before calling the GetPartialUserData (we don't allow you to use getUserData, by the way) or executing a purchase and then closing it when these are complete. Aside from that, ...

Re: call component function only possible via interface?

I think you mean the <script> tag, and you should be able to call any of the functions in an included .brs file in your init, and while an observed field is, I think, necessary to initially call a function within an included file, I believe that called function should be able to call anything else w...

Re: What's "consumable" in Roku world?

The idea, if I recall correctly, is that a consumable is intended for things like video Games for example you might need to buy coins you can use at the local space station to outfit your ship with better lasers, or a movie rental where you might rent the same thing again. A non consumable would be ...

Re: What's with RAF and leg shaving?!

Hi Jim, do you have some output from the crash? Is the crash occurring within your code or do you believe it is occurring within the RAF library?

Re: Highest paying ad networks?

I don't know which ad networks pay more.

Our Roku Ad Framework library works with DFP. You are required to use it if you are going to monetize with ads on our platform.

Always great to know about CDN's that support our platform, thanks. I've removed your other post from the General forum but I think your announcement is ok on the developer forum.

Re: Certs not accepted?

Response from Engineering: OK I found the problem. The certificate hostname comparison check on Roku OS components is case sensitve, so SSL handshake was failing in case of Roku OS components.

Re: Beta Scene Graph Components

Here is what I've got: There is a bug in RowList that I've found and fixed. The problem was that setting the rowHeights field was not causing the clipping rectangles for each row to be recomputed. I'll check the fix in <for the future> In the meantime, in the example, in main.brs, if they move the l...

Re: TV Guide/EPG in roku

for UI's generally Scenegraph will be better, followed by roScreen. r oImageCanvas is slow and clunky (pretty much in the same way that most cable and satellite EPGs are slow and clunky, lacking in smooth motion - so the choice is up to you) If you have installed our Eclipse Plugin, I suggest you ta...
