Hello,

 

I’ve been able to reproduce this same behavior now at least 10 times now across two different Roku players (a Roku Ultra and a Roku Streaming Stick+) and different playlists/media.

 

When you navigate into the Playlists section>click on a playlist>press the down button to bring up the episodes>pressing the play/pause button while any of episodes are selected>immediately throws you out of the Emby app altogether and back to the Roku home screen. I think that most people would assume that one could press the play button while an episode is selected to immediately play the list from that point (rather than having to use the d-pad to first view the episode information and then play from there).

 

Could someone please take a look at this? Often times, I know exactly what episode I want to start on and I don’t need to view all the synopsis info and would love the ability to just click the play button and have the playlist play from there. And, at the very least, I’m hoping that it can be fixed because when I do accidentally hit that button, it gets really tiring of getting thrown all the way back out of the app and to the Roku home screen. It takes awhile to navigate back to where I was. Please let me know if you need more info. I did attempt to update all the Roku software on both units today so it’s running the latest version of the standard Roku app (not the beta). Thanks so much!

This should be fixed in the current beta version of the app.

Hello,

 

Just wanted to check back to to say that I d/l and installed the Roku Beta app just to try it out and test this issue. I wanted to start by asking if the newest version of the beta has been pushed out yet? I have 3.0.196 as of just now (installed within the last few minutes, you can more easily see that via your own time stamp of this post.) 

 

I only as because, unfortunately, it’s also doing the exact same behavior as described above. I tried it so many times that I lost count making sure that I could reproduce the issue multiple times across different playlists. In fact, I didn’t ever not have it crash back out to the home screen. :( I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news on that but wanted to let you know ASAP. 

 

If the latest beta is a newer version than what ended up installed on my system, please let me know and I’ll be looking out for the next version in order to test it on the newer version. Once again, I’m sorry to report the problem continuing. I’m not complaining, just trying to help with a bug. :) Thanks so much for all of your work on this!

Yes, that is the correct version.  I reproduced the bug you described and fixed it (at least in my test).

 

Problem is my test wasn't comprehensive enough and, it turns out, there is actually another problem as well.

 

We'll look at it again.

 

Thanks.

No problem. I just hated to bring bad news. But I’m happy that it seems to have led to finding the underlying problem. :) Thanks so much for all of your work!

Can you please try this again with the latest beta version?

 

Thanks.
