Credits in Direct Publisher

I'm trying to get credits working, but it doesn't show up anywhere in the app or the preview.   I've tried a few different approaches and none have worked.   From my feed:
"credit":[{  
            "name":"Jane Doe",
            "role":"host",
            "birthDate":"2014-01-15"
         }]


Does anyone have a working example?

Yup, same problem here.  I've tried it on Movies and Series with no luck.  Very strange since it appears on Roku's Channel.  Must be some subtle difference or a hack that Roku uses.

It would be really great if RokuCo could release a sample feed with all the objects in place.   Might make it easier for us to figure out the ropes of DP.

Re: Credits in Direct Publisher

They have, to some degree. It's in their JSON spec. I think it's more likely that the DP portal or the firmware on the box has a bug. At times, I get the feeling that Roku is using us to test the DP portal. In some ways, the whole thing doesn't seem like it was fully tested.
