As far as I'm aware they haven't stopped putting holiday themes up. The last was for St. Patrick's Day.


They put a spring theme up on all the rokus except the roku 3.


might have been an oversight? I enjoy the themes so I hope so.

Re: Scheduled reboot of Roku box using PHP/batch script/etc

Well, you could change the z pos of a sprite to a high number to force an instant reboot. but...you probably want to do something else. :) Like Joel said, if you have a decent data center, you should certainly have remote access to the rack PDU, if not, you could just get a digital timer for like 3 ...

I hope they put some up though. Not many to choose from. I would like some holiday and season themes I can use during the year.

Re: Does roku test all channels that go into the channel sto

sounds like a problem that's likely on your box johninfl, I'd try unplugging and replugging the power on your roku.

I had my roku3 acting really weird with all the menus coming up crazy, then I did a reboot and all was well.

Re: Make the Ethernet port automatic?

the roku likes to run 24/7 so that it can download updates and such at night or whenever. might be worth experimenting with a usb power adapter, you can find them for like 2 bucks, and they only use pennies worth of electricity, would solve this issue as well as the potential problem of your roku al...

Re: Printable version of SDK Docs?

the documents folder in the sdk zip has all the information in pdf, but it's hundreds of pages and not necessarily up to date compared to the online stuff. plus the online stuff is searchable.
