Documentation Request For 1920x1080 roScreen

Mon Apr 29, 2019 11:02 am

So it's been discussed a couple times on the forums that some Roku models can run a 1920x1080 roScreen component, such as here. For the most part it seems people say that if the device supports 4k then it supports running a 1920x1080 UI. However, my current gen Roku Stick and Roku Express run the 1920x1080 roScreen just fine, and they are not 4k streamers. So that means the ifDeviceInfo.GetSupportedGraphicsResolutions() method returns false negatives as to whether a 1920x1080 roScreen resolution is supported.

I'd personally be fine with something as simple as a list of models that do and don't support a 1920x1080 roScreen (I've got a feeling that all current and future gen models will support it).

I just tried running a 1920x1080 roScreen on my old Roku 3 4200 with 9.1. It runs, but the location was off. The bottom of the roScreen ends about half way down the screen.

ETA runs as expected on my 4640.

I think that's actually one of the issues is that it technically runs on all Rokus but can have weird results depending on the device. I don't believe there's a way to programmatically check if something went wrong.
