I know this is a request that really is not useful to most...  But it would make ME happy   :D      I would like to be able to set some kind of server wide "popup" message, kind of like the new user "Tour" box that the new users see, but with my own message...     Like "Server Backup in progress, you may experience laggyness or streaming issues while this backup is in progress",  or "Server will be down XX-XX-XXXX from 8AM to 10AM".     Useful for anyone else?  Should be an easy add...

You could just create your own plugin that watches for events and auto pops up a message relevant to a process that the server is undertaking at that moment.

 

You will just have to watch for triggers from the server and Boom your message pops up.

 

That is to say that all your users are using the Webclient.  If using a client then the client would also need to implement these messages or you create an api for clients to tap into.

There is a message function in the remote control API that could be used for the apps that support it (the web client and MBC do I'm sure).

Add the roku to the "supports this" list, when using the blue neon app.
