Well I didnt realize it was open source. I dont use Remoku - actually never heard of it
before this string. I'm not going to delve into it but I do think its buyer beware.
**bleep** a new remote is what 10 bucks so I really dont get it.and there are phone apps.
Those are not screen shots of Remoku by A. Cassidy Napoli. Remoku is not an Android native app but rather works as a browser script by visiting remoku.tv or by installing as a browser extension for Chrome or Firefox.
Instead, those are screen shots of RoByte by TinyByte Apps. The keyboard support in that app requires a $0.99 in-app purchase as it is considered by the developer to be a pro feature. If you already purchased the feature, I recommend contacting the developer for support. Their email address is listed in the Google Play app store as tinybyteapps at gmail.com.
I would have to agree with boogernose that you should consider starting with the official android Roku app by Roku Inc. themselves as can be found here:
The official app has some functionality that no other third party app can provide such as private listening. It is also completely free with no in-app purchases to unlock features.
If you really need an alternative to the official Roku android app, I would recommend RoMote by William Seemann which is available from both the Google Play Store and F-Droid app platform. There is no in-store purchases required and no in-app advertising. I would provide a link to it but the community moderators have taken on a militant stance on enforcing an extremely broad definition of "advertising." If you really need an alternative to the official app but can't find RoMote based on the information I provided, let me know via the Roku Community Private Messages.
I did fix the issue by discovering that somehow the IP address it was trying to connect to had changed somehow, and I corrected it. It works fine now. You are correct, the app icon is labeled RoByte, but I got it by following the ReMoku app download site somehow. And I did pay $.99 for the keyboard addition. It works very well, and as long as it does and I can use it safely, I'll stick with it. But I'll keep your suggestion handy in case of future problems.
