genkey problem

I can't generate keys with genkey tool. Genkey has no output, this is my result:

C0D03J002582
ETHMAC 00:0d:4b:5a:e6:f2
WIFIMAC 00:0d:4b:5a:e6:f3
>genkey
>

I'm using puTTy and win7. Debug console works great and I had no more other troubles with developing my app. But now I can't publish it without keys.
Please help.

Re: genkey problem

I think I had a similar problem and fixed it by rebooting my Roku.

Re: genkey problem

Unfortunately nothing helps, reboot, even factory reset.

Re: genkey problem

Do other commands work? You should be able to use the "press" command to simulate keypresses (eg. "press home" should act like pressing the home button). Also, "exit" should terminate the telnet session.

Re: genkey problem

what happens if you run genkey a second time immediately after the first failure?

Re: genkey problem

I've seen many times where the first 'press' command is ignored, so maybe the first command of any kind is sometimes ignored. I've gotten into the habit of just typing 'press/CR' when the console opens. I single return would probably have the same effect.

Running genkey second time immediately after the first failure, works!

Thank you.


Sounds like a non-visible character is being sent by your terminal which is fouling up the first command entered.

Re: genkey problem

Genkey is not working in my telnet sessions. Using Vista "cmd" and "command" terminal programs.
It simply goes to the next line after I hit return; hit it twice and it goes to the next line.

What is "tcp_port"? You should be telnetting to port 8080 to use genkey.
