Whaaa? That's can't be - how is one to use ECP-documented /input command if not via roInput?
Just looked up and /input was announced as part of rOS 4.1 some 5+ years ago https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc ... 12/21/2011 - has it been secretly discontinued?

I would be first to say (in fact i think i have before) that /input has "issues" in that it is a one-way communication - but baring /input, what other ways does external app have to talk to a channel? E.g. take https://channelstore.roku.com/details/8 ... arty-games for example - i am fairly sure (80-90%) it uses /input and roInput for Android phone to be a touch-pad controller

PS. the alternative of trying to host own web server on Roku is arguably a bigger mess waiting to happen

I stand corrected Smiley Happy The usage as documented in the External Control Guide is (of course) supported.
FWIW, we'll get it added to the component listing documentation.

Done.
Just noticed createObject() still gives BrightSign examples:
sw = CreateObject("roGpioControlPort")
serial = CreateObject("roSerialPort", 0, 9600)

Replace with Roku classes maybe?

TFM shows wrong (or no) dimensions for mm_icon_focus_sd, mm_icon_focus_hd, mm_icon_focus_fhd
see viewtopic.php?f=34&t=96475 for details. Needs fixing!
 Fixed!
