Still not in the channel store for me, I re-booted and Reset to factory defaults and re linked, etc. Still no go. Don't know what else to do.

I have not requested yet to have the channel reinstated in the channel store since I have not had a chance to test it. The people that are reporting results already had it installed before it was pulled. Until the channel is put back in the store, you can use the following link to add the channel.

I will look into all your requests. When I made the decision to make the pictures small was just because most the time the screensaver is running is when the TV is off. If you wanted to see a full screen slideshow, you can use the app. If you didn't notice, there is a random photo slideshow from all albums.


I for one would like the screensaver to show bigger pics and fill the screen. I leave the TV on all the time when I'm home even when I'm not doing something specific with the Roku. It would be nice to see the pics in full screen with the screensaver.

You're just taunting the "would it kill Roku to add a power button?" crowd, aren't you?

hi Chris Hoffman,

Nice work on these Picasa Roku channels. I selected the movie option in Picasa and added music to go along with the slideshow. I uploaded to Web Albums. Now we're playing it on Roku via your channel, but the music is missing.

Hello Chris Hoffman,

We're having problems downloading the pictures onto our Roku. We've put the code onto the website that was provided, and the Roku took it, and the TV keeps saying Retrieving, yet after hours, nothing comes up, it always stays the same, this is just the problems with our albums, or is it just the TV that won't take it?

My Picasa Screensaver has been working fine with two albums. I just added a third. It shows the album and pictures are there and I can watch them in a slideshow, but the pictures don't show up in the screensaver rotation. What am I missing?

Is the Picassa Web Albums function now defunct? There are no new posts and no one responds to inquiries. Should I just remove it from my player?

Don't really know. You might try a PM to "hoffmcs", the developer of the channel. Hasn't posted since September, but was on the board within the last couple of weeks. I don't think its in the channel store any longer. It doesn't sound good.....
