Hi, I'm trying to find a way to create separate JSON files for my series lists so that I can update a series without having to update the whole feed. Is there a way in the DP JSON feed to link a Series Object to a new JSON file which lists the episodes? I'm looking for a field like seriesURL where I can link one JSON file to another in a RESTful type of way.
Thanks for the clarification! What about creating multiple pages? For example, a separate episode screen for a series, so that the main/intro screen doesn't have to contain every episode. How can we create an item that opens a new Roku page with a subset of items?
You'll have much more control of the layout of your channel if you use the SDK. However, you should prepare for a learning curve if you have no programming experience since Brighscript (the SDK language) is not a typical programming language.
Using a "Series" object in a DP channel feed will open a separate page with the associated episodes.
