Re: I buyed TCL-Roku TV

Hi,

You don't need those specs to do development, we have not yet updated our website with the specs, I'll see if we can make that happen sooner rather than later.

However, I would suggest purchasing one of our low-end devices in addition to the TV as the TV does not support SDTV mode, so you won't be able to test your channel in that mode, which is a requirement if you want to publish your channel on anything other than the RokuTV, Roku3 and StreamingStickUSB.

Re: I buyed TCL-Roku TV

Hey KyleKim (or another good samaritan) -
can you let me know what's the Roku model# of that?

The TCL model is 48FS4610R but Roku likely reports different number internally. Can check in console:
BrightScript Debugger> ? createObject("roDeviceInfo").getModel()
3100X
Alternatively that can be seen with the remote - in main menu / settings / player info, tends to be in format 9999x

All Roku TV models and brands return 5000X for ifDeviceInfo.GetModel()

10q!
I was this close to ass-uming it will be "4610x" because of the TCL models numbering.

I suspect that should read 5xxxX. I've seen 5000X, 5101X, and 5103X in my analytics logs.

I copied those characters straight out of the brightscript console. What shows up in logs may be different. My understanding is this model # will be the same for all TCL and HiSense manufactured Roku TVs, at least those sold in the United States.

I was wondering about this discrepancy between your observation and Joel's determination. I think i know now what happened, there has been a change:
  • In the original firmware RokuTVs come with (~ 6.0.2541), the correct model designation is returned, e.g. "5101X"

  • At some later point of time (including today's current fw 6.0.5044), that was changed to return genericized string "5000X"

I guess that was dictated by some, errr "business reason". The Settings / System / About menu still shows the correct model# though. Not a very nice thing, if we encounter some problem that is specific to one manufacturer but not the other (e.g. crashes in Hisense but not in TCL), there'd be no way to know which set we running on.

Just tested and can confirm my TCL Roku TV returns 5000X in console, shows 5101X in the about screen.
