Roku media players are a great way to stream content to your TV from services like Netflix, Pandora, and more . This module makes it extremely simple to add a Roku interface to your BitWise user interface.

  • Channel List - Automatically creates a scrolling list (including artwork) for easy selection of any channel installed on the Roku player

  • Auto Layout - If the content area is large enough, the Channel List will appear next to the Remote Control section. Otherwise, a button will be automatically generated to let the user switch back and forth between the Channel List and the Remote Control

  • Text Entry - When the on-screen Roku interface contains a text box (such as for a music search ) just tap the 'Text Entry' button and type your search entry using your device's native keyboard. When you tap 'OK', the text you entered will be sent to the Roku. This is MUCH faster than 'typing' with menu buttons like you would with the Roku remote control

  • IP Address Discovery - Since Roku players don't allow you to set a static IP address, this module uses the serial number of the player to automatically discover it on the network
  • Color Match - Detects the dominant color of the page background, ensuring the GUI content automatically looks great with any of our GUI Templates
  • Multiple Instances - Quickly and easily create unique copies of the Module for projects that include more than one of this device
