Re: TS streams taking forever to load

There could be an issue with the CDN delivering the content. For example, the nodes being hit may be down or have performance issues. Do the streams play fine elsewhere other than on the Roku?

Re: Simple way to animate a loading screen?

You can now do asynchronous image loading with the roTextureManager component. This can be used in an image canvas or roScreen for this purpose:

Re: Making a Private channel Public

You can delete the private channel and resubmit it as a public channel. In this case, however, the channel will need to go through Roku QA before it is published. Deleting the private channel will free up the channel name for use in your public channel.

Re: JSON and roKeyboardScreen

You can replace the overhang for that specific screen by calling roAppManager.SetThemeAttribute("OverhangSliceHD", "background_image") where background_image is simply an image with the same color as the desired keyboard screen background. Then when navigating to other screens, c...

Re: Limit Time on StreamUrl

You could do something simple like set up a time using roTimespan:

http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/RokuSDKv48/roTimespan

and after the desired interval, SetContent on your roVideoScreen to the ad or other new content that you want to play.

Re: JSON and roKeyboardScreen

There is no EncodeJSON function in the SDK at present. As for the color of the top part of the keyboard screen, do you mean the overhang area?

Re: RSS News Feed

A good place to start would be the mrsstemplate sample in the SDK. Although this is tailored for MRSS, it would be pretty simple to modify this for standard RSS.

Re: Ticker Tape at bottom of screen

To do this you need to use the roVideoPlayer component, not roVideoScreen, and create an roImageCanvas on which the text gets rendered. Take a look at the CustomVideoPlayer sample in the SDK, it should get you started.

Re: How to Exit Channel

You can use the msg.isRemoteKeyPressed() function to determine if a remote control key has been pressed. msg.GetIndex() will then return the code for the particular key that was pressed. You could then exit your channel in the event of a specific remote key press.

Re: Auto-selecting a category

Assuming that you are able to detect that there is only one category from the XML, simply launch the category poster screen with the single category from the XML structure:

displayCategoryPosterScreen(m.Categories.kids[0])

and don't display the interim categories poster screen.
