I am trying to update an SDK public channel today 12-15-17 and am getting an error. All check marks are green, and JSON code checks good. Test channel works. No red marks anywhere, except after I hit the update button. Says an error with your Channel, try again or contact technical support.
I haven't resolved it yet. I opened up a support ticket. Roku said it might be their dashboard having issues. Requested screenshots, which I sent. That was about 4 hours ago. Glad to hear I am not the only one. It was working fine yesterday.
Day two, and no further replies from Roku support. I did try to upgrade another simple channel that was already in the public channel store. Again, same issue. It immediately tells me there was an error, contact tech support. The JSON file for this channel is so short, so I'm 99% sure there is a problem at Roku. So my initial question was and still is, due to holiday break, has ROKU discontinued all channel updates until 01/03/18 including updates on pre-published channels? Anyone else experiencing this same problem? Thanks folks!
Making updates to an unpublished Direct Publisher channel, and although I can see the updates in in Preview pane (sort of, it's always been wonky) on the dev site, the channel, is not updating ... it usually happens almost instantly.
Mine is unpublished. I can refresh the feed status manually, and I can see the changes in the Preview pane on the dev site, but the channel doesn't update. I'm using SON, too. So, this tells me the hangup is between the roku servers and my roku unit....which is why I presume Roku says to allow for 24 hours.
I can see the JSON feed update instantly on my test channel through the Roku player. Go to Settings - System - Check for Updates - Update your software. It will load your new JSON code so you can view it on your Roku box. If you do not see the change, reboot your Roku box. If the change is still not visible, uninstall your test channel, and reinstall it from the developer page. You will see the changes to your JSON code. There is no need to wait 24 hours. I can do all of this successfully. However, when I click on that blue update button, it immediately prints a red error message on the page.
