how to debug a channel in the channel store

I am having serious issues with my new channel, when i use it on my local machine works just fine...

but the private channel just keeps tossing me out, its at the appvideo screen, and its very strange it does everything it is supposed to on the channel here locally but in the channel it will just go back each layer and then out to the main menu

Re: how to debug a channel in the channel store

The only differences between the side-loaded and store-loaded channels are the devID and private key that signs the package is different. The most likely difference this makes to your code is some state loaded in the registry that is different between the two.

Re: how to debug a channel in the channel store

kevin, but why would it be working just fine locally and not in the private channel?

i just linked using the same userID as the local and it does the same thing. i push play to watch video and it goes back one layer and then to home screen and then out of the channel all together.

It shows NO errors in the local channel...

what does the rekey do? and does that mean the user would have to once again relink if i do that?

Re: how to debug a channel in the channel store

Rekeying - if the key is different, then yes. You can clear all keys by doing a factory default on the box which will force relinking as well. If your local copy of the channel works and the private channel copy doesn't, then you might want to reupload it to verify the code is the same, and probably increase the version number to be certain the channel gets updated. In the debugger you can look at all the saved data for the registry for the channel, as well as clear it out manually if necessary, for just that channel for your local copy - I don't think that works for private channels now.

Re: how to debug a channel in the channel store

Thanks you think the changing the channel version will help? im a bit concerned cause it it would be v 1.6 and it only goes up to 2.0

I thought it was working but now its not again, its pretty odd...

I went ahead and uploaded it again and changed it to a new version.

what do we do after version 2.0??

It will give you new choices after your version is 2.0.... you'll get to choose between 2.1 and 3.0.
