Restarting Application Issue


I wrote a function to restart the app in main.brs. I call it from the main app. However, it sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. For example if I try it on a Wired connection, it works. On Wireless, it doesn't. However, it is not always true, sometimes it works on wireless with other devices. I have the latest Roku Premium box that was just released (large box).

Here is the code. It doesn't return me any errors. Function runs, but nothing happens when that URL is hit.

sub restartApp()
  print "restartApp()"
  appId = createObject("roAppInfo").getID()
  uri = "http://localhost:8060/launch/"+appId+"?restart=true"
  launchRequest = createObject("roUrlTransfer")
  print "restartAppComplete()"
end sub

Re: Restarting Application Issue

DId you ever find a solution? I would guess it is probably because of loalhost thing. You might want to get the local ip address of the device and use that.

Re: Restarting Application Issue


As I understand ECP has been deprecated from "in app".  Is there another way to restart the app programmatically?
