Hi, i'm trying to set up a roku for my 92 year old grandfather so simplicity is paramount here. I want to install the beta because i've generally found them to be very stable but i can't see a way of hiding the views or rows in the beta app. it all works fine in the release build, i have it limited to a tv row, a movie row and one showing the folder view. i just want to replicate this in the beta but it seems the functionality has been removed or isn't working. any ideas? cheers

Set the preferences for the account in the web client. Roku should inherit those settings.

Sounds to me like library access/permissions.  Users, then select username-access.

but its still the same server, the only difference is the mb app? beta vs release.

 

anyway a nice end to this story i think. i sent the package containing a roku 3 plus all cables to my grandfather, all set up to log in as the correct user, all his series set as favourites etc as long as he selected the mb app. i meant to email my mum today to tell her how to get it all set up but got waylaid at work and have just received a text from her to say she went round this evening and found him already watching it! i took a look in the activity log and he's been on it for the last 10 hours non stop!

 

so there you go, mb on a roku - easy enough for a 92 year old to use without instruction
