It should be noted that the code for NBC is HN08S with the O being a ZERO instead of the letter O.
Please in the future don't use the numbers - ZERO'S - ONES - Letters - i - L - O they can be confusing.


the codes are assigned by Roku. out of my control. sorry

Glad you got NBC - CBS -ABC but what about the FOX NEWS CHANNEL ?
Would be nice to see Bill O'Reilly, Greta Van Susteren and even Glen Beck besides Morning Joe and Keith Olbermann.


fox is on my list, although Greta is audio only and Mr. O'Reilly's feed is broken at the moment, so they may not be included at first.

There is a big delay when pushing the left/right buttons to select different shows. I make sure to click slowly. : )


Just an FYI, this is caused by having to load large file size thumbnails from the internet. Nowhere can maybe fix this by reducing the size of the "poster" pictures.

Does this NASA channel drop to lower quality because I was watching something that rebuffered a few times then the quality seemed like it was about a 2 dot.

Oh and thanks for doing these.

Re: A Couple New Channels with More to Come

Great Job NWM, looking forward to PBS and HBO in addition to the Left/Right Propaganda Channels, lol. Smiley Happy ( Though I guess PBS is partially Left Propaganda - lol. )

I'm curious, since you find this so easy, how come there aren't more private channels? Is there a place where they are posted that is not in the main forum?

Thanks again for all your work, including the IW NR Tracker, which I find of immense value.

Best,
Josh

Good question. To the best of my knowledge, there is no "tracker" for private channels.

My statement that this is easy should not be applied to the general task of building a channel. What I meant to say was that now that I have a template for building and deploying channels based on podcasts, cranking out new ones is trivial. Once I've collected the list of feeds, I literally only modify 3 lines of code for each new channel. The most time consuming part is putting together the graphics for each channel. At some point soon I'll be writing a blog post on my personal site detailing the process for anyone who might be interested.

Blog would be great, NWM. I looked into and played around with the SDK, but I just don't have he patience for coding/programming, which is why I appreciate your efforts so much.

How long until HBO and PBS will be done? What kind of Podcast content is available? I assume I won't be seeing the latest episodes of "Entourage", lol.

Thanks again for your hard work?
