Re: Any way to use two roku's for development?

Every roku box can have it's own side load. Any side-loaded channels will not be affected unless you connect directly to that roku and change something. Try resetting and re-enabling dev mode on that one, and be real sure about getting the IP address correct. If you are doing development, you might ...

Re: Can I add advertising to an existing channel?

It sounds like you might be trying to deceive people as to what they are getting... that is never going to go well for you. Make sure to let people know up front what they are getting, and you should be fine. If you have the ability, you might consider adding a "free preview week" option t...

Re: Roku 3 creates wifi hotspot that conflicts w/my router

I'm pretty sure this is normal. Mine does the same thing. it's kind of annoying, since it's on the same channel as whatever wifi it's connected to, so it's just like it's built in to conflict with it instead of built to pick a different channel or give you an option to pick manually. If you change t...

Re: decreasing compatibility to increase sales?

if I go into the 'Games' section, 'Rogue' (compatible with all, I believe) is listed higher than 'Angry Birds Space' (available only on Roku 3 I believe) Nope, Rogue is R2 only. There are a couple channels like Angry Birds Space that have weird compatibility rules, they are put in the same group as...

Re: decreasing compatibility to increase sales?

If a game had a lot of usage on Roku2, it would be right up there, regardless of for which platforms it was available. . Hi Patrick, I appreciate your taking the time to reply. If it was possible for a channel that is compatible with R1 to be shown higher up, there would be at least one single exce...

Re: decreasing compatibility to increase sales?

That's not what happens. Yep, it is exactly what happens. Thanks for taking the time to answer. I had assumed it was intentional, since it has been happening since before the UI upgrade as well, but if it's not intentional, then it's definitely a defect in the store code. I suppose I'm too much of ...

Re: decreasing compatibility to increase sales?

Hi Patrick, The channel store (viewed on the roku box not the web) groups channels by compatibility, so channels that are only compatible with R3 are automatically ranked at the top, only R2-R3 are right below those, etc. If you drop compatibility with the older rokus, you will automatically get a h...

decreasing compatibility to increase sales?

Anyone limit their channels to just roku2 or roku3 to increase exposure? Since Roku gives highest ranking / exposure on the store channel to those channels that are least compatible, I'm thinking of dropping compatibility with rokuHD to increase ranking and exposure, which should increase the number...

Re: does roku 3 work for this?

> I use Windows 7 as an OS and it has issues with netflix (i.e. the interface sucks)

are you using the web interface or the WMP interface?


I think the wmp interface is one of the better ones out there.

Re: How to use roAudioResource and mixing of sounds?

if you look at the beep example in the SDK, there is example code for playing multiple audio events at the same time. Some limitations with that, volume control doesn't work (you'll get 100% volume whether you want it or not), it only works on roku 2, and it will hard crash older roku boxes. I had b...

Why? That seems odd to me, why would it matter what they are selling?


to me, it sounds similar to "I don't mind if a car runs over my foot, as long as it's not a red car."

Re: There is a way to access the remote accelerometer/gyrosc

nah, then a channel might come out that would use the accelerometer remote for something besides a hack to try and act like a phone touchscreen.
