Re: screensaver?

Hi

I made a channel and I want to use a private screensaver (made by me also for that channel). But all the time is use Roku home screensaver, how can I discover what i do wrong.

I have two project with a channel and with a screensaver with this two manifests:

Channel manifest:

title=AppPreviewScreensaver
major_version=1
minor_version=1
build_version=1
mm_icon_focus_hd=pkg:/images/icon_focus_hd.png
mm_icon_focus_sd=pkg:/images/icon_focus_sd.png
splash_screen_fhd=pkg:/images/splash_fhd.png
splash_screen_hd=pkg:/images/splash_hd.png
splash_screen_sd=pkg:/images/splash_sd.png
splash_color=#000000
splash_min_time=1500
ui_resolutions=fhd
confirm_partner_button=1
last_updated=22.05.2018

I made a screensaver (a different channel) with this manifest:

version one:
screensaver_title=AppPreviewScreensaver
major_version=1
minor_version=1
build_version=1
screensaver_private=1

version two:
screensaver_title=AppPreviewScreensaver
title=AppPreviewScreensaver
major_version=1
minor_version=1
build_version=1
screensaver_private=1

I need to map the screensaver to the channel somewhere inside of the code?
I need to move the screensaver to main channel project ? And add extra function RunScreensaver.

Thanks for your help

Yes, you should have a RunScreensaver() function in your channel that launches your screensaver. If it is a SceneGraph channel it should create a new scene for the screensaver component.
This - screensaver_private=1  - determines whether your screensaver will appear in the Roku's screensaver list, so it can be set as a system-wide screensaver, or not.
