Re: BrightScript UDP

BrightSign is a different division of Roku, this is the forum for the Roku video player. That being said, there are some examples in the 3.0 SDK on UDP communications for the Roku video player. To find your ip, use the roDeviceInfo component. There is a thread from a few weeks ago on this subject. -...

Re: Screensavers don't work when using roScreen

I noticed this myself and asked Roku about it: There are currently limitations on using screensavers in conjunction with roScreen apps. Please see the v3.0 docs for more details. except I can't find anything about "screen savers" or "screensavers" when text searching all the Roku...

Re: So it is the end of the month...

Geez, come on. Sometimes the anti-business sentiment gets a tad overblown, no? Anti business? How? I'm an entrepreneur myself. I think businesses will do better in the long run if they focus on the needs of their customers. The big problem with Cable TV is the lack of, and opposition to, an ala-car...

Re: So it is the end of the month...

Look, as a consumer, I'm not saying I'm happy to pay more for things than I have to, because that's not the case. I do understand though that services we use cost money, and if I expect to use significantly more than someone else does, it follows that I'm going to be paying more than someone else d...

Re: list of Roku model numbers?

Found this list on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roku hopefully the getmodel() is accurate for this. I guess I will switch to using the software version numbers - hopefully I can count on the first number to the left of the decimal point 013.00E02207A being the deciding firmware version on...

list of Roku model numbers?

What is the best method for identifying the Roku2 vs Roku1 devices? Is there a comprehensive list somewhere that I can use with roDeviceInfo to make sure I'm on the right device type? Two of my older roku devices return "N" as the first character, one (the one I got at RadioShack) returns ...

Re: So it is the end of the month...

Why does many americans think they are grandfathered into everything? And they are exempt from inflation and/or other cost increases? First of all, I signed up for "unlimited" Internet from AT&T. If I rent you a house and then 5 years later I tell you that if you use the kitchen I'll ...

Re: So it is the end of the month...

AT&T just capped their unlimited data plan, to 150gb, that is 1/2 of what comcast caps at, and I have used about 250 gb every month this year. I just go a notice that I hit 60% of the cap and next month will be charged $10 for every 50gb that I exceed the cap. So my Internet bill will double. I ...

to make it even more fun, you can fade in the graphic image, or at least create the illusion that it is fading in.

Re: Extreme Noob question regarding capabilities

I would, try to figure out how to do it with roImageCanvas, instead. A bit trickier, just because imagecanvas is kinda weird, but ultimately you can do it pretty much exactly the way you want it. Also, don't use goto unless you have no choice, instead, use a while loop while true ...do stuff if stuf...

Re: Feature Suggestion: Play all media like Western Digital

I'm certain Roku would like to support everything, but they are still a tiny company, WD is a giant company that pre-existed the Internet, and probably half the people on this message board. It takes time and money to implement all these decoders, it will probably improve in the future. As to the ta...
