The new version looks odd. I don't remember the FIRST TILE only on the homescreen having th focus frame around it, I am sure it was more natural and moved as you scrolled horizontally.

 

Also collections are shown as much bigger rectangle backdrops on the new content section, rather than just the DVD/Bluray covers for singular items (this existed before).Looks weird with wide rectangles and then more vertical rectangle shapes.

What is odd about the focusing?

This focus behavior has been there for quite a while now.  It allows you to wrap around (go either direction in the row).

 

What may have happened is that you may have had few enough libraries that they didn't fill the whole row.  In that case, the row doesn't wrap and, instead, focus moves along it.

The frame is around the FIRST tile (library) only and does not move, you kind of expect the frame around a library to animate to the right as you scroll left or right and then when you get to the end it moves the whole line of image tiles to the left. I'm sure it did this in the previous version?

The floating focus does not allow wrapping. Floating focus still does occur if the items in the row are not enough to fill the row. But floating focus will not occur if it is scrolling items onto the screen. This is to keep the ability to wrap the row left/right. You can navigate from the start to the end by just pressing left once. This ability is lost with floating focus. We use fixed focus when items must scroll and floating focus when they cannot. This is a standard Roku interface mechanism doing both. We do not tell the interface to focus differently this is all handled by the firmware whether the focus will be fixed or floating.

Yep. I was just trying to explain the reasoning. We like wrapping rows. You can't have wrapping rows and floating focus. The two are oil and water. Choosing wrapped rows with fixed focus is to ease navigation. It is better.

Sorry, no.  It is not a fast process and they get to select whom they allow.  We are working on it.

That's fine, I guess it is our own fault for not speaking up sooner. this has been going on for years and never really bothered me until plex showed up as a native app.  

 

ill keep checking in from time to time to see if there is any news.  

 

Cheers

Since version 4 of the windows server my roku plays video's with a green flickering.  it's now unusable.  Really hoping things with telstra work out soon.

 

Cheers

That green flicker might mean hardware accelerated transcoding. If you disable hardware acceleration does the green flicker stop?

Just came back to say i think the problem is the hardware acceleration,  turned it off last night and the problems seem to have gone away.  my server runs an intel on-board gfx card, is that a problem?

10.18.10.4425  04/04/2016 it's running on homeserver 2011 and that was the last driver for it. might have to put an actual discrete gfx card in.
