BIF Files, DP Preview

Helo all:

Moving this to a new thread.

Can anyone confirm (Roku included) that BIF files actually play in DP created channels?  I've created complaint JSON with 2 different apps and BIF files still do not show up during REW/FFWD, although they appear fine in my API built channel.

Lastly, is the Preview function for your DP channel on the Dev site limited to what the front page and splash screen look like, or is there deeper functionality (arrowing down, using the * key, etc.

Thanks, and happy holidays!

We've talked about this privately, but I am also having the same issue.  I haven't been able to get BIF files working at all.

Anyone?  I'm actually holding off on moving from my SDK based channel to a to DP based one due to this.  

Roku, can you confirm this is indeed possible?

Thanks!
