Programically get channel version?

We're feeding usage data from the Roku into our customer support system. Generally we fix a bug, release a new version and hope our user's system updates it for them, but during this process we don't know for sure if the user is on the old channel or the new one and therefore we don't know if we've fixed the bug. I'd love to feed in the channel build_version to our support system, but I'm unable to find documentation on how to retrieve this value. One suggestion was to parse the manifest file, but not recommended. Any suggestions?

Re: Programically get channel version?

roAppInfo.GetVersion() should give you what you're looking for. If you're looking for just the build version, you can use roAppInfo.GetValue("build_version").
