THIS is what I've been begging Roku to do for almost a year now!

BRAVO.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

I see that instant watcher for Netflix that is in beta. ;)

As we talked about, I am not in the target group since it cannot link to NF movies.

When in the "Add Channel to Group" dialog, cursing through "Change Group, OK, Cancel" happens too fast making it difficult to zero in on the middle "OK" selection.

I'm not able to reproduce this, but it sounds like a bug I reported to Roku awhile back, and thought they had fixed. I had a workaround implemented, but it must not work the same on every box. I've pushed an update that will hopefully fix it.

It appears your update fixed the problem. Thanks.

Sure wish i could get the INSTANT WATCH BROWSER button.
Any chance of that happening soon ?
I too had trouble hitting the OK button.
But i was so zoned into getting the channels added i didn't care.
Plus you did warn us it was in beta.
Glad you fixed it. :D

The channel doesn't currently allow you to remove the All Channels row. The "how do you get it back" issue is one of the primary reasons, but also because you'd have to keep adding and removing it every time you installed a new channel. A lot of quirky UI issues with that that I didn't want to try to tackle.

I'd be fine with the All Channels row if it was possible to re-order the rows. Maybe it is and I just haven't found the option yet? If I could bury that one down at the bottom that would be fine. Also, is it possible to rename a row, in case of misspelling?

I love the concept, though. Looks great, works great with the exception of a few already-noted kinks that I'm sure you're working on, and it's a very essential interface addition. I only wish it could fully replace the current home page, but I'm sure that will happen once they inevitably hire you. :wink:

I don't see a code on the first post, and the link doesn't have one anymore... are you not letting people test anymore?

so groups are listed in the order that they are created, not alphabetically. (unless i missed something?)

the 1st channel in any group defaults to the 2nd column, why not the 1st column?

I've been playing around with this today and it looks great! The only thing I wish I could do is easily organize the rows in alphabetic order starting at the left side of the screen (yes, I'm one of those people). I tried rearranging them with the current system of choosing channel position by number, but it was tedious and difficult to recall from memory what position I should select since the row isn't viewable while reordering the channels. Really, I can live with it as is, but you are asking for feedback so there it is.

As always, GREAT JOB. It looks awesome!

I must have had my thinking cap on when i did mine.
I wrote it all out on paper ( old habits die hard ) before i did it.
And it worked out great for me.
I hate to say it but you can always erase it all and redo it again.

Yeah, it would be nice to be able to organize the channels ala the Roku Home Screen method.
