Re: Where is screensaver documentation?

Besides tmp:/, I found another means for main/screensaver "interprocess" communication: roRegistry. Registry i think is better choice for fast messaging between the two, since all happens in RAM and there is no need to reg.flush() - one can do reg.write() and the other right away reg.read() and see the result. Let me know if there is issue with relying on that behavior.


This technique is being reviewed by RokuMarkN for thread-safety, i.e. what happens when one both screensaver and main app write to the same registry key at the same time, or one is reading at the same moment the other is writing.

Re: Where is screensaver documentation?

I would also like to see the official documentation from Roku on implementing a screensaver if it is possible? I can't seem to find it anywhere online Smiley Sad When I search for Roku stuff it doesn't seem to be official - more just interesting info
