Ever want to control your Roku from your PC, Smart Phone, Tablet, Mobile Game System, eBook Reader, or other browsing device, for free? All you need is a modern browser!
Just browse to Chrome, Firefox and Opera extensions. These add an icon to your browser toolbar for easy access to Remoku without leaving the page you are on.
Your safety and privacy is important. Despite being a web app, once you install Remoku, no information is sent outside your local network. The source code is available for public scrutiny. If you try Remoku and have any problems, please report them here in the thread or via the Issue Report Form. Comments and suggestions are also very welcomed.

I see it has a Play Timer under Goodies.
Anyone test this out yet?

If both of those are true, then the browser(and thus Remoku) should be able to talk to the Roku. If you can't see the list of apps, we'll have to troubleshoot why. First thing to try is restarting the Roku (just unplug it and plug it back in, then give it time to fully boot up). If you can see the list of apps, I'll need the debug info from the about box (everything between the help link and the wipe settings button) to get started investigating why Remoku can't talk to the Roku.
I haven't been able to get this to work. I've tried on both Chrome and Firefox. I have my network IP address filled in, along with the IP of my Roku, which I manually added.
When I press a button within the application, it says 'Sending request to [my roku IP]' but nothing happens.

And yes, the shoutcast launcher is (more or less) identical to TheEndless'. Thought it would be a convenient place to have it. If I come across (or anyone brings them to my attention) other channels that take advantage of launch parameters, I can add them as well.
I assume the dump core macro is the sequence that can re-boot a frozen Roku, correct? And the SHOUTcast launcher is like the one that Endless set up where you can put in a URL and it will play on the SHOUTcast channel?
