Re: Nowhere TV

Thanks for adding Crash Course Biology. Both Crash Course History and Crash Course Biology have released their last videos, but two mini-series are planned (I think). Crash Course Ecology has one new video out, and Crash Course Literature will be here real-soon-now.

Not sure how these videos will be organized in their youtube channel. But, keep an eye out and, if possible, connect them up.

Thanks.

Re: Nowhere TV

Is there any chance of getting these into a station/channel, Nowhere Man?

Hey Nowhereman.
Thanks for the amazing package of entertainment. If I could put in a request, I'd like to get my local news fix. It streams from here.

Re: Nowhere TV

@rydaken, VagaBondDennis & anyone else interested in having feeds added,

Don't forget that you can add custom feeds to your NowhereTV. That's what I've done when feeds I've requested haven't been added globally. It's very easy to do:

Is it compatible content?

  1. On your computer, open this tool in a browser and enter the URL you want to check.

    1. If the content isn't compatible, you'll need to find another way to watch your content.

    2. If the content is compatible, you'll be given the option of entering a code.

To get the code

  1. On your Roku, launch NowhereTV.

  2. Press the * key on your remote.

  3. Select "Add a custom favorite" and press OK. A code now appears on your television screen.

Adding the link

  1. On your computer, enter the code into the text field at the bottom of the validation you ran above.

  2. Click "Add Favorite". The link has now been added to your NowhereTV.

Refreshing NowhereTV

  1. On your Roku in NowhereTV, select "Back" and press OK.

  2. Press the Home key to exit NowhereTV.

  3. Press OK to relaunch NowhereTV.

The Favorites row with the feed you added should now be displayed on the second row. Easy peasy. Smiley Happy

It's a great option and a wonderful compromise since there's no way RokuChris can add all of the compatible content that we request or NowhereTV would be impossible to navigate. Hope this helps.

Re: Nowhere TV

> It's a great option and a wonderful compromise

indeed it is ...
i have used it a number of times to add content.
the problem i'm having is ...
finding the content to add.
ie: "data returned from the URL can/can not be parsed as XML"

i could certainly use some guidance/direction in how
to go about finding such feeds.
any hints on how to go about that?

Re: Nowhere TV

I have the top signal from ATT which is fiber optics not broadband and Nowhere keeps reloading about every 2 minutes off of Rokuand sometimes 5 times before the signal comes back. Why does it do this and what am I doing wrong to cause this to happen. If it can be fixed I want to donate for the service. I know the people in charge are fighting over who will get to make the trillions off the internet and don't want to spend a small amount to replace old technologies that aren't capable of working with today's signal but I thought that by 2012 if we could drop a camera on Mars and get the highest quality images possible from it sent back to earth that this would be very easy to fix and we'd have large on-demand libraries at the highest HD level since the people in charge have blocked us from getting the much better Max 48 format that renders everything in the backgrounds in crystal clear focus. But I guess greed trumps us- so any suggestion on how to stop the signal from constantly going out on Roku I or is this a reality we are supposed to accept? What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any help on this issue Smiley Sad

Re: Nowhere TV

On the CBS channels...

***I am unable to watch "48 Hours." I continue to receive the message, "No Content Available."
***I am unable to watch "60 Minutes." I continue to receive the message, "No Content Available."

Any reason why this is the case?

Re: Nowhere TV

I was enjoying NoWhereTV, for a while, when I discovered CBC live streaming. I emailed Chris how CBC switched off
on weekends, and would not even return Monday mornings... I just love Canadian TV but live in U.S., any way I find
now that we are not even able to get any stream at all from "CBC" in NoWhereTV.

If anyone has a suggestion or knows of any one willing to broadcast CBC.ca live, from say Ontario that would be awesome!

Another thing that is great from NoWhereTV is how there are a number of "local" TV news channels. That sure came in
handy when Sandy hit NY/NJ. Also very handy when travelling to see whats up before you get there. : -)

Thanks for NoWhereTV.
