Re: Remoku (updated Firefox add-on: February 14, 2014)

The developer menu macro does not pop up:
{"keypress":"Home"},{"keypress":"Home"},{"keypress":"Home"},{"keypress":"Up"},{"keypress":"Up"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Left"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Left"},{"keypress":"Right"}

I tried adding {"wait":"00:01"}, at various locations and even between each keypress. Any ideas how to get the developer mode macro work? Works fine if manually push the sequence with the remote. The Secrete Screen macro works fine. I'm on a Roku 3 v5.3 build 4016.

As far as I knew, Roku had intentionally disabled entering any of the Konami-style secret key sequences for network remotes, due to security concerns. I'm surprised to hear the secret screen works.

Re: Remoku (updated Firefox add-on: February 14, 2014)

When I get home tonight, I'll try out all of the macros of which I'm aware on my Roku 3, 2 XD, and XDS, just to see what happens. If there are others that work, or that only work on certain models/firmware, it'd be nice to know and have documented.

I am using "Task Scheduler" to run a "AutoHotKey" script to open Remoku.tv, send a few clicks, and a run Remoku macro. I do this to start a live stream every morning as an "alarm clock"-type function. Is this the only/best way to do it? would like to be able to open the webpage as "http://remoku.tv/macro/Home" (where "Home" would be the name of the macro) and have it run the macro on its own. Is this possible? Alternatively, is there an easier or more direct way to control the roku?

AHK Script:
run C:\Users\David\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe  --app=http://remoku.tv/
sleep 15000
click 230,60
sleep 1000
click 200,120
sleep 1000
loop, 9

send {down}
sleep 100
}
send {enter}

sleep 1000

click 340,120


Macro:
{"wait":"00:15"},{"launch":"199"},{"wait":"00:15"},{"keypress":"Select"},{"wait":"00:05"},{"keypress":"Down"},{"wait":"00:05"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"wait":"00:05"},{"keypress":"Select"},{"wait":"03:00:05"},{"keypress":"Home"}



I'm trying to do something similar. I want to launch SkyNews Live Feed. The best I've come up with so far is:

{"keypress":"Home"},{"launch":"27181"},{"wait":"00:20"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Right"},{"keypress":"Select"}


But the problem is that the "Live Feed" channel isn't always in the same spot. I wish I could just use {"launch":"27181?paramForLiveFeed"}, but I have no idea what the param would be for that. Is there some way I can get the url for the channel I'm watching?

I'll look into it, but channels have to specifically add support for launch params before remote apps like Remoku can take advantage of them. More than likely, Sky News hasn't done this, so navigating to the content has to be done via the up/down/left/right/select keypresses. If I can find a deterministic path to get the live feed up, I'll let you know.

Oh, I thought I was just missing something. You don't have to go through that much effort just for me.

Can support be added for using public IPs with re-mapped ports?

Missing Remoku toolbar icon

Can you help me locate the Firefox add-on icon? It mentions being in a toolbar but I've looked in all of them. I am able to use it in its own tab for both my Roku 3's.

Edit:
Sorry if I should have started a new thread.

Just replied to your email, but here is the gist.. Smiley Happy
Hi Bryan,
I've been sidetracked on other projects for too long Smiley Happy ... I thought about this some...and I don't want to encourage users to expose their Roku to the public internet(too many opportunities for chaos), however I can include a port override as a 'hidden' feature(no ui) fairly easily. I'm envisioning it as an optional url parameter or hash (e.g. you load http://remoku.tv/?port=8184 or remoku.tv/#port=8184 and that changes the specified port). I'll be able to work on it this weekend.
Thanks for the prompt(seriously) Smiley Happy
