Re: roRegistry shared with development environment (7.5 firmware)

Firmware versions are not necessarily monotonic by order of release or exact feature set, with respect to major.minor.dot versioning.

Re: roRegistry shared with development environment (7.5 firmware)

This is a feature, as of firmware 7.5.
The sideloaded app behaves as if it is running with the keyed developer ID.
So it uses the registry for that developer ID.

This discussion seems to be way off in the weeds at this point...

I've already commented on these points, sorry if it is not clear.

To reiterate, the Chr(0) behavior is explicitly intentional and "as designed".

BrightScript does not support embedded NUL characters in strings.

BrightScript is not BASIC.

I'm not sure why you are attributing sarcasm or non-genuineness to my attempt to provide information. :(

The BrightScript Chr() behavior of returning empty string for 0 and other non-valid codepoints is intentional and was done with forethought.

Re: How to translate ID3 PRIV or GEOB to readable strings from HLS live stream?

Belltown is correct, in that at least some of the BrightScript processing enforces valid UTF-8, and would reject the C080 sequence. You can expect enforcement to get more strict over time. :) Regardless of what someone might expect, BrightScript doesn't define a character type, only a string type. H...

Re: How to translate ID3 PRIV or GEOB to readable strings from HLS live stream?

Any chance the un-support of \0 in strings can be fixed ? As far as i can tell the \0 arcane quirk is not even documented. I think it is unlikely that Roku would add support for embedded chr(0) characters in BrightScript strings. In my opinion there isn't a valid use case for it. If you need to wor...

Re: How to translate ID3 PRIV or GEOB to readable strings from HLS live stream?

As Belltown says, the hex encoded string represents the binary data of the GEOB frame. You would have to decode that into components yourself, e.g. using roByteArray. http://id3.org/id3v2.4.0-frames 4.15. General encapsulated object => Text encoding $xx MIME type <text string> $00 Filename <text str...

Re: Custom font for Rowlist label ?

I am afraid not - can you elaborate how does one assign an XML element (which "Font" is) to an XML attribute (which "rowLabelFont" is)? Your leopard-tracking skills are getting rusty. :roll: :wink: Notice the "role" attribute in the Font node, mentioned in https://sdkd...

there is no way to distinguish between 2 different ECP remotes, since they all return "ECP:0" (bug? cruel joke?). 


Yes, that's a bug in 7.5.0 firmware.  It will be fixed in a future firmware version.

Re: Getting Data from ID3 Tags

I still haven't gotten anywhere on this.  My conclusion, for the moment, is that there are several versions of ID3 tags, all with different formats, and that Roku does not support the data structure that I am sending to it.  If anyone has any other thoughts on this, I would be very interested in he...

Re: fw7.5 "live TV pause" => i can haz Write access to USB drive now?

My impression in the past was that USB storage gets mounted only real-only on Roku. This however must have changed for the new rOS 7.5, since the "Live TV Pause" feature will be writing to said external storage. Which brings my question - can 3rd party devs now do the same? User-formatted...
