Firmware version 2.9 has been out for a few weeks now. How are you still on 2.8 (unless you're referring specifically to the SDK documentation, which hasn't been released for 2.9, but is implemented in the current firmware)?
- I'm pretty sure this was supposed to be fixed in 2.9, but I've never used the SSDP discovery, so I'm not sure.
- This is limited to the grid screen (like Netflix). keypress/Left and keypress/Right should work on all other UI screens. This is still the case in 2.9. The workaround is to send a keydown followed by a keyup
- Not sure what you mean here. FF and REW work as expected on my boxes, both via IR and ECP, in Netflix and on the home screen.
1. The SSDP discovery functionality is not working over wifi in Roku player software version 2.8. It works when the device is connected over Ethernet.
Also when I send keypress/Rew on the home screen nothing happens

I had a Verizon Fios-provided Actiontec router that simply refused to pass certain traffic (udp packets) between the ethernet and wifi interfaces, and despite weeks of research and config tweaking, I was never able to get it to work. It blocked bonjour traffic between iTunes on different pcs, prevented Tivos from discovering one another and their desktop clients, and also blocked SSDP discovery of Rokus. Ended up replacing it with an off-the-shelf netgear and haven't had a problem since.
I don't know why, at least with my Roku, I am only able to discover it when it is connected via Ethernet. When it is connected over WiFi, my SSDP search fails all conditions being equal.
