Screenshots

I just discovered the new Screenshot feature. Nice! I could have used that when I drew a whole Mah Jongg board one tile at a time.

Re: Screenshots

Discovered it myself this weekend. Very handy, indeed! Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work with grid screens, or rather, it only captures the overlays (poster frame, description bubble, and overhang), but not the actual posters. Smiley Sad

Re: Screenshots

Being lazy here...but how does it work? Is it a new telnet command?

Re: Screenshots

Utilities page on the sideloading "web site". I think it may be new in the 3.0 firmware. Not sure if it's in the latest 2.9 or not.

We're still pretty early in the beta period and this particular feature is not yet done.

I assumed as much. Just pointing it out as an issue at the moment. Three channels I'm working on at the moment use the grid screen, and I got excited about not having to use my SlingBox for my screen caps, but alas.. Smiley Wink

Re: Screenshots

Hrm, I'm not seeing this on 3.0-2128.

My "Utilities" page only has Inspect and Rekey.

Re: Screenshots

Just got 2186 today, and this is the feature of the release for me so far.

A big, big "thank you" to the Roku engineer that's implementing this. I was looking into buying some video-capture equipment specifically for this purpose, so you just personally saved me around $200.

Re: Screenshots

You should absolutely see it, but it only works for sideloaded apps, so check that, too.
