Splash Screen Duration

Is it possible to control the duration of the splash screen that is called in the manifest file?
I'm developing a private channel for corporate use and would like to add a version number somewhere in the channel. The splash screen seems to be the best place if I could only keep the splash screen up a little longer.
If not, are there other ways the channel user can find out the channel app version number?
The channel content is going to be pulled from a corporate USB stick so a internet connection is not always required thus doing a system update to get the latest version may not be possible.
Thanks

Re: Splash Screen Duration

The manifest file has a splash_min_time attribute for that purpose: http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/Manifest+File

For a channel app version number on roku - on the home screen, hit home 5 times, up 2 times, left, right, left, right, left
