Re: Link in commentsRe: Custom wallpaper

@DJ-Greg-G 

There is currently no way to create/use your own wallpaper (unless you are a large corporate entity that pays Roku to allow your promotional wallpaper to replace one of the pre-existing ones for a short period of time).

You can create your own screensaver using the Roku mobile app.  However, it only applies to 4K models, which is why many of the previous posters of this thread couldnt use it - the model they were connected to wasnt 4K, so the option to set a screensaver didnt show up.  Unfortunately Roku doesnt document this anywhere.

You should suggest this (it probably has been many times already):

Re: Link in commentsRe: Custom wallpaper

This is so silly. How hard is it for Roku to put up and developer option for making your own wallpaper? Laziness and pinching pennies on roku's part

Re: Custom wallpaper still not capable

So they are rolling out a big new OS update and they STILL will not allow you to simply upload a photo of your choice to use as a wallpaper? 🙄

 

We are stuck with the horrible pre-school looking computer generated art.

What year are we in? Get with the times, Roku!

@THF90  There are tons of wallpapers to choose from. But Roku OS 11 allows users to set personal pictures as screen savers

Re: Custom wallpaper still not capable

But none of the wallpapers are any good and are all generic looking. The only one I liked was the Classic Vinyl one and they yanked that away a month or so ago.

 

I don’t care about screen savers. I don’t look at screen savers when looking at my Roku, but I do look at wallpaper, which is what I am complaining about. In 2022, it is absurd that you can’t jump on the app and simply upload a picture to use as your wallpaper.
