Re: How to add an intro screen?

Depending on the kind of user experience you want, there are a number of way to do this. The easiest would be to use the roParagraph screen type to just display a couple lines / paragraphs of text with the help information you want. A more custom way to do it would be to use roScreen and the 2DAPI t...

Re: Custom Grid/Poster down the screen

You'd need to do all of the grid UI, image rendering, etc. from scratch. Take a look at the 2D API documented in the ifDraw2D interface (implemented by roScreen) and the ifTextureManager.

Re: metadata metaconfusion

It might be beneficial to take a look at a working sample from the SDK, specifically the simplevideoplayer sample. It doesn't use an Amazon Cloud based feed specifically, but the code for parsing the XML that contains the video and other metadata content is similar in most cases.

Re: Roku SDK Screens Template.psd

At present, the Roku 3 UI is not exposed via the BrightScript SDK. Therefore there isn't an updated template at this time.

Re: Issue with Grid Screen Row/Column Index Not Updating

The row | column counter in a grid screen should update without any channel specific BrightScript code. If the grid is populated with content this should update automatically when navigating through the grid. You could try trimming your channel down to just the grid, populated with test / dummy cont...

Re: Initially selected program

Grid and poster screens both support the SetFocusedListItem function. You can use this to specify which item gets initial focus.

Re: HLS/MP4 in MRSS

There is a content meta data attribute called StreamFormat which you can use to specify the format of a specific stream: http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/Content+Meta-Data Basically I would define your XML to do <streamFormat>hls</streamFormat> or <streamFormat>mpg</streamFormat> depending on ...

Re: Styles for Grid List Question

There is an undocumented grid screen API called SetListPosterStyles that you can use for this purpose, for example: listStyles = ["landscape", "portrait", "landscape"] screen.SetListPosterStyles(listStyles) I will make a point to update the docs to include this function.

Re: dfDrawImage taking a long time

I wonder if the server you are hitting cached the original request so that the 600kb image was always being saved and rendered? Perhaps try forcing a new download (using a new file name or adding a bogus query parameter to the query) and deleting the temp file before storing it for rendering by Draw...

Re: developer mode in Roku LT

That is the correct remote key sequence to use, it should work. It might be that there was some delay between individual key presses when you were going through the sequence. Try it again with no pauses between key presses and see if that helps.
