roVideoPlayer not working on roScreen when Roku's in SD mode

My game (Retaliate) is set to go live this next Thursday pending a quick fix to a seperate issue in the SD mode version. No problem there. However, in fixing this SD mode bug I noticed my promo videos are no longer playing on the Score Screen. These are just my personal promo videos for the Android version of my game, they are just .mp4's hosted on amazon S3.

There are a few things confusing me about this. Why does everything work fine when the Roku player is in an HD display mode? And why did it randomly stop working? I am 99% sure that this was working perfectly fine when I originally submitted my channel, I have made no changes since then.

Re: roVideoPlayer not working on roScreen when Roku's in SD

Are you calling SetDestinationRect() on the roVideoPlayer and passing in the correct SD coordinates? While the HD roScreen should scale automatically, you still need to position the roVideoPlayer based on a 720x480 screen.

Saved again by TheEndless! Thanks man, that was exactly it. I guess maybe my "99% sure it was working before" was a lapse in memory. Smiley Tongue
