Ya it is a custom ui which is no small thing to write. That said if we do go with custom ui's then the first one will likely be a poster wall ui first off the ranks.

 

Not saying no but saying if we go that route it would be further down the track.

It has been submitted to Roku. So hopefully it will hit in the next week or so. Feel free to test it out with the beta version if you want to test it out now.

It is the current beta release and once Roku approves it, it will be the current official release too.

Are there any videos of the roku app in action with Live TV anywhere? I know there are loads of screenshots, but you can never beat seeing something in use. Cheers mini

Not at the moment unfortunately. I'll try to find someone to make a video of it. Thanks.

The latest version (1.17.2) has now been published to the Roku store. It should be hitting your Roku's the next time it connects to the Roku server.

Congrats on getting this out.  Very nice update.

 

This should be the only channel anyone ever needs :).

If a movie is part of a collection, the collection is shown. If I click on the collection to go inside of it, the application crashes, and it takes me to the channels screen.

GC - you may be running into the issue I had when I first implemented this.  If you supply the collapse parameter on the query for the contents of an actual box set you are going to get thrown into an infinite loop because the server isn't paying attention to the fact that you are requesting the contents of a box set and returns the box set all over again.

 

I suggested the server should probably handle this to keep clients from having to manage it but it may not have been done.

I haven't implemented anything on it, so it must be some sort of server change. I don't see anything in my movie section on the web server so figured it had not been implemented yet.

@Luke, does the server API now collapse movie queries by default?  Does it handle this potential infinite loop situation?

I don't think this particular issue is an infinite loop. It's handled by the server, assuming clients are using it as advised. Since he's not explicitly adding the param, he is.

OK, but then this feature is currently broken as it doesn't do anything on my movies on the web server. And apparently it breaks the channel too unfortunately.
