When deploying a brand new Roku to a project you must ensure that the Roku has been COMPLETELY set up and linked to Roku account before moving forward with this driver.
IMPORTANT: On the TV go to Settings – Power – Fast Start and enable that service. If you do not enable this setting you will not have proper control of the tvs power functions.
Roku’s will not be discovered until this is done!
Step 1: Install Roku TV Driver.
Step 2: Put in your BlackWire License Key
Step 3: Go to Connections – Network and then drag the RokuTV UUID from the right column of composer to the TV driver line. This will ensure if the device changes IP address the driver will continue to be able to control it.
On the Available Devices column look for urn:roku-com
IMPORTANT: If your project is on Composer 3.1.1 you need to update to 3.1.2 or newer.
