Roku Channel Problem. . .and Fix

roku-logoHey, All.

After the most recent upgraded to WordPress 4.2.2, we discovered our Roku channel stopped properly displaying all our video on demand content. After a longer-than-I’d-like process of taking care of this issue, we have it fixed. HOWEVER, we had to submit a new “package” to Roku, which will take up to TWO WEEKS to be approved. (Blech.)

That’s the crappy news.

The good news is that I can provide the secret URL to the fixed Vegas Video Network channel so that you can subscribe to it before it goes public. Here’s how:

  1. Point your browser here: https://my.roku.com/add/NNTZKR
  2. Add the Channel to your Roku Account
  3. Go to your Roku player, select SETTINGS, SYSTEM, SYSTEM UPDATE

This will look for any software update for your Roku (good) AND also look for any new channels. It will find Vegas Video Network and load it on your Roku.

Now, when you look at your list of channels, you’ll find a second Vegas Video Network channel at the end. Use that one until we’re officially approved. Then, you can go back to your original VVN channel.

5/18/15 Update: The channel is fixed. Follow the third step above and you’ll see the corrected VVN Roku channel.

Low Audio Levels Fixed on New LiLV Shows

We received a few emails/post comments about the audio level being very low on the new episodes of Living in Las Vegas. We did some snooping around and found the problem. For episodes LiLV205 and LiLV206‘s MP3/audio files, they’ve been corrected and uploaded. If you reload your feeds, the louder MP3 files will load.

Moving forward, this shouldn’t be a problem for either the video or audio files.

Thanks!

The Return of Living in Las Vegas

LiLV-460 3For the first time in over a year, The Living in Las Vegas Podcast returned to the live streaming video world.

Well, kind of.

In preparation for the return of LiLV, last night, we streaming our rehearsal. The goal was to get acquainted with our new studio AND get my new co-host up-to-speed. We had some long-time fans of LiLV join us in the live chat. . .it was GREAT (and like we’d never left).

Brett Grant will be my new co-host. He’s a great guy. . .funny, smart, and a long-time broadcaster (he owns KSHP here in Las Vegas). If the fun we had during our rehearsal is any indication, we’re in for a boatload of good times.

OUR FIRST SHOW WILL BROADCAST LIVE on TUESDAY, 3/10/15, at 8PM PST. You can join us at http://vegasvideonetwork.com/LIVE.
