Roku3 Utilities Screenshot

Will there be a firmware update to allow taking screenshots at 1920x1080 since that is required for the channel store now?

Re: Roku3 Utilities Screenshot

where is that man-dated?

on a side note, i don't think Roku3 can does FHD UI.
for 1080 UI, 4k player required.

"up to" < "required"

The "up to" refers to the number of images (6), not the size of each image.
Try uploading an image with a size other than 1920x1080 and see what happens.

For now we upscale them in a graphics program before uploading, but it'd be nice to remove that step like it used to be.

Re: Roku3 Utilities Screenshot

Any idea when/where/how was a requirement for 1080 imposed and 720 dropped?
If it was intentional, i would imagine announcement was made.
Otherwise it may be a simple mistake - i bet 90% of players in the wild are limited <= 720p UI, meaning prevailing majority would be doing downscale with loss of quality.

The option for 1280 x 720 screenshots was removed from the GitHub documentation on Oct 14, 2016 by Danny Ng: https://github.com/rokudev/docs/commit/daf8bd70d0537269e3a5066f0cf2e3be223f6857 because of the "new submission flow".

I don't remember seeing an announcement to that effect, however.

Re: Roku3 Utilities Screenshot

To add to the confusion, even though the Publishing Channels documentation was updated to remove any mention of 1280x720 screenshots, the Channel Artwork documentation was not: https://github.com/rokudev/docs/issues/27.
