Roku Remote Control Buttons

Does anyone know how to disable the Roku remote control buttons - especially UP and BACK? Or perhaps a work-around so video playback is uninterrupted when the UP and/or BACK buttons are pressed? Thanks.

Re: Roku Remote Control Buttons

There's no way to do that with roVideoScreen, but you could implement a custom player using roVideoPlayer.

Re: Roku Remote Control Buttons

Thank you! I believe we're using roVideoPlayer. Would you mind telling me how to disable the UP and BACK buttons with roVideoPlayer?

If you're using the roVideoPlayer, then you have to already have code in place to respond to every key press (except home), so all you should need to do is locate that code and disable it for the UP and BACK keys.
