How long do they usually take to certify a channel?

My experience has been between 24 hours and six weeks, assuming they they pass the first time.  Also, that's with screensavers, the simplest kind of channel.

Re: Certifying channel question

When you submit your channel for public certification, the last step gives you an option to tell Roku to wait until a certain date before publishing it. I don't know if you can hold indefinitely until you say "OK, now", or not.

Re: Updating our existing Roku app

Unfortunately, without the password, you are basically starting over. Always save the password and the last .pkg file you made. Maybe it's in the Eclipse logs somewhere?

I guess I could send a key command but that seems like an ugly solution. 

Might be your only choice. The screensaver runs in it's own thread, separate from the channel, and therefore blocks access while it's active.

Re: Introspect Roku Objects?

Not sure if it's what you want but Brightscript has FormatJSON()  which is good for printing/peeking at arrays.

Re: App signing/packaging provides authenticity of the app?

So I wonder am I missing something or I should really spend my resource else where (i.e. protecting username/password of the developer account) rather than this roku/devid/password. If you publish a channel, it's permanently tied to that developer account. Only that account will be able to access t...

Re: Debugging Help - Screensaver Crashes

I just tried my Roku Media player on a 4640 and one of my screensavers works over it fine. The only thing I've seen here different from what i do is I set my manifest resolution to fhd.

Re: Debugging Help - Screensaver Crashes

Ok, so there is something in the ScreensaverFade component that is crashing it right? because you got that far in both situations, and then it crashes.  The only time I ever get a connection closed like that is if I accidentally put something in the code that's really illegal, and the Roku can't eve...

Re: Debugging Help - Screensaver Crashes

"All it does is close the telnet connection. No output, nothing I also tried post 8085, but that does the same thing (just the telnet connection getting closed when the screensaver kicks in)." Make sure 8085 works,  then use 8087.  8085 will not show screensaver debugging. If it's closing...

Re: Debugging Help - Screensaver Crashes

I don't see anything obvious.  Commenting out show() means it's not actually running, so that doesn't tell you anything. You need run the debugger on port 8087 (screensaver) and see why it's crashing.
