roGridScreen and HTTPS Posters

Hello All,
Did anyone found how we could use image over HTTPS in gridScreen. I am using the certificate files and still I can't see the image appear in grid screen. Same certificate file works for posterscreen,springboardscreen but not for gridScreen.

If anyone found some way out to use HTTPS image in gridScreen. Please do share.

Thanks in advance.
Regards

Re: roGridScreen and HTTPS Posters

This is a known problem, not sure if it's been fixed in a recent firmware update.

The only two solutions I am aware of are to either not use HTTPS/SSL for grid posters, or to copy the HTTPS/SSL grid posters into tmp:/, then display the tmp:/ posters in the grid.

I've filed a bug on this.

If anyone cares to create a simple demo app showing this issue, which I can sideload, please email or dropbox me the .zip

Just checked, the problem still exists in 5.2.

There's a .zip on its way to you.

Re: roGridScreen and HTTPS Posters

Any update on this? Is this a cert issue? Are there anyways to load images without adding another cert.

I am seeing this issue on roGridScreen and roSpringboardScreen.

It doesn't look like the bug has been addressed yet, so I've raised its visibility with our engineering leads.

Unfortunately not. Most businesses don't deliver their thumbnails over SSL so the business case is not there to make this a high priority, however, this bug probably will be fixed in the future.

Hi Joel,

We're working through securing one of the top 10 Roku Apps with SSL (including thumbnails) due to a security issue and to ensure privacy of content. Can we speak through PM about the effect this bug is creating and rational for fixing? It appears as though I cannot PM you directly.

Thanks,
Ben

*edit*
Since I'm a new forum member, it seems PMs are disabled for me. Feel free to email me if that is easier than enabling PMs. Thank you in advance.

Re: roGridScreen and HTTPS Posters

I'm moving a site to all https and the roku channel shares code for image sources, this issue just hit me. At least there's an explanation for what's going wrong. I'll need to create a separate feed just for the roku grid images to be non-https.
