Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

New version available - V2.1.0

A new version of Roksbox is now available. Version V2.1.0 provides the ability to skip the main menu and go directly to your default media screen. To set Roksbox to skip the main menu, go to:

Options -> My Options -> Menu Preferences -> Show Main Menu

From the Show Main Menu screen, choose "yes" to show the main menu, or "no" to skip the main menu and go straight to your default media screen.

If you want to change your default media screen, go to:

Options -> My Options -> Menu Preferences -> Default Media

From the Select Default Media screen, choose "Video Screen", "Music Screen", or "Photo Screen".

Good to hear. I'll work on your request next (I haven't forgotten about it).

Coincidentally I'd already re-installed Roksbox Cloud yesterday on another Roku account, and saw the default media option. Didn't realize it's new :mrgreen:

Hi,

I've been using Roksbox for several years now and love it, but I have a few questions.

1) Has anyone been having problems with themes? I have three Rokus running Roksbox, and they are each set to show themes automatically, but I've noticed for some time that they aren't working. Most recently was the 4th of July, no theme, just the black background. I could manually select the 4th of July theme and see it, but as soon as I changed back to the automatic option, it was gone.


If you're using Roksbox original, the auto themes should work now. If you're using Roksbox Cloud, there aren't any holiday based themes. However, some of those themes are nice (I like the Halloween one). Maybe I will add the holiday themes to Roksbox Cloud.

2) I also noticed we had a recent software update on Roksbox. Maybe I’ve just never found it, but is there a page that shows what was added/changed in each update (and maybe when they were released)? If not, would it be possible to have that? Right now I kind of stumble across new features by accident.


Unfortunately I don't have anything organized for that right now.

3) This is a request I’ve made a couple of times, but is there a chance of getting a delete option added for movies? One of the things I use Roksbox for is part of my homemade DVR setup, and it would be great if I could delete TV shows after I watch them. Especially with a verification first, so I don't delete something by accident! Right now I go to my server periodically to clean them up.


This would be very tricky to do. You would need something like PHP on your local server in order to do the deleting, which would make the setup much more complicated. I will give it some thought as a possible option for those who might be interested.

Thanks as always for your great product!

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Is it possible to have both a webserver AND usb configured? It seems whenever I configure one, the other no longer shows up. I want ROKSBOX to be my one-stop shop!

Although I rarely use the USB option recently I had a need to test it and I set up and ran the USB for a while. (Worked well by the way) Then I changed back up the web server and all my settings remained. All I had to do was choose the web server and all my settings remained.

Has anyone ever used a Raspberry Pi to stream movie files to Roksbox?

The best way to do this is to create another account. Then use the second account as the USB account.

From the main menu, go to:

Options - > Manage Users -> Add User

Give the new account a username such as USB, a description such as USB Access, and optionally a password. Then you can choose between your original account and the new USB account whenever you start Roksbox, or you can log off and log back on as either account.
