Re: Roku Connect - New Channel to Stream From Computer to Ro

I've try it under Windows 2000 server but:
1) i've modify some php.ini parameters because application tell "undefined variable". i've fix it
2) application web works fine with Mozilla, not with IExplorer 8 because missing buttons config & index
3) roku application don't work. In debug i see Error invalid or missing PHY in routine category.

I like the project goal but i cannot test more because roku application dont show more.
Cheers

Does anyone know what might be causing this error? I've looked at other forums and it appears that one cause is defining min bandwidth. The weird thing is I can't reproduce this on my own machine. I'll keep trying different environments and see what I get.

"Invalid or Missing PHY" is usually caused by a bad URL. If it's happening on the poster screen, then it's probably a bad HD/SDPosterURL.
