Fixed
The Language Reference, section 5.11: IF expression THEN statements [ELSE statements]

"If caveman = "fred" then print "flintsone" else print "rubble""

Flintstone is misspelled!

While we're worrying about details like billing and function description errors and sample program failures, we almost missed something really important like this.

<snort> I'd think that's one of the few places where a typo is intentional Image, like say to avoid "unlicensed use" of characters. I fully expect a RokuCo rep to neither confirm nor deny intentional similarity.

I would be amiss not to complain about the stiff way in which "truthiness" is defined though, not allowing for the logical operators' use as a makeshift conditional operator (like in say Lua or other BASICs i know):
print (caveman = "fred" and "flintsOne" or "rubble")

FIXED:
On the Web Service API page, the base URL changes between the examples. For some, it is "https://apipub.roku.com/" and for others, it is "https://apipub.qa.roku.com/" is this a typo?

As a general comment, its a little mystifying to me that some API calls use XML for request and response and some use JSON.

On the ifCaptionRenderer page, under ShowSubtitle: http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/ ... easBoolean)asVoid

It says This function behaves the same was as ifVideoScreen.ShowSubtitle()

There is a typo (was should be way). But also, there is no ShowSubtitle section on the ifVideoScreen page. Additionally, despite there being a blog post about using ShowSubtitle on a roVideoScreen, ShowSubtitle does not seem to be available on the roVideoScreen component.

The description of what roDeviceInfo.GetAudioDecodeInfo() returns is wrong -
it says "<number of channels>:<SAD1>:<SAD2>:<PassThru>",
should be "<number of channels>:<SAD2>:<bitrate>:<is-pass-through>" -
see viewtopic.php?f=34&t=92320

roUrlTransfer.AsyncGet... - underdocumented

Thu Jun 09, 2016 5:15 pm

Fixed
The behavior of the Async methods of roUrlTransfer is under-documented - see viewtopic.php?f=34&t=95138

Should be documented in TFM.

ifDeviceInfo.GetCountryCode() should be updated for the added countries, MX and FR i think? Also maybe GetCurrentLocale() is affected too?

On https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/PosterGrid, "When fixedLayout is false" should say "When fixedLayout is true"

On https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc ... Attributes, the dimensions provided for mm_icon_focus_hd and mm_icon_focus_sd are incorrect.

Page talking about "Special Scene Graph Debugging Commands", should mark that as "avail. in 7.2+",

roInput is not a supported component.

Whaaa? That's can't be - how is one to use ECP-documented /input command if not via roInput?
Just looked up and /input was announced as part of rOS 4.1 some 5+ years ago https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc ... 12/21/2011 - has it been secretly discontinued?

I would be first to say (in fact i think i have before) that /input has "issues" in that it is a one-way communication - but baring /input, what other ways does external app have to talk to a channel? E.g. take https://channelstore.roku.com/details/8 ... arty-games for example - i am fairly sure (80-90%) it uses /input and roInput for Android phone to be a touch-pad controller

PS. the alternative of trying to host own web server on Roku is arguably a bigger mess waiting to happen

I stand corrected :) The usage as documented in the External Control Guide is (of course) supported.
FWIW, we'll get it added to the component listing documentation.
