How see errors?

Hi

When you upload the zipped project to the roku box via the browser plug-in installation screen - if there's an error it just says "....Failed".

How can you do any serious development if you have no idea what the error is?

How do you get proper error results that would allow you to correct any errors?

Re: How see errors?

Most helpful. Thank you.

I tried adding stop to the source code of a sample...

I have Telnet installed and I can connect to Roku - I see the BrightScreen Debugger prompt>

But then pressing C and S (or whatever) don't have any effect other than appearing in the Telnet window.

The Roku debugger doesn't show any more information or reshow the prompt it just lets you type down the screen.

Any ideas?

When a channel stops, sometimes it exits completely back to the home screen rather than stopping in the Brightscript Debugger. If that happens, just try again. This is a firmware bug that will be fixed in a future release.
