If it makes you feel better, CR works great with both / either of Chromecast and / or PlayOn; both of which are Roku alternatives.

The other thing to consider is that the development of this dice probably has virtually nothing to do with the development of aforementioned Roku app. I'd be willing to bet the person / people who worked on this dice (which is probably a piece someone could whip together a prototype of on their lunch break(s) over a small period of time) are not even the same people capable of working the Roku / device specific apps.

Especially since the Roku uses a specialized language (BrightScript) which is pretty much ONLY used for the Roku (ref: http://www.quora.com/Why-did-Roku-create-a-new-programming-language-for-their-device).

Conversely, the dice could be powered by any number of much more common, 'standard web' development technologies. I could probably walk into my local Apple store or Frys at a busy time and find at least 3 people that could make its equivalent; not including myself. I highly doubt I could find a BrightScript developer without moving mountains. I'd probably get quicker and less expensive results training a new resource on it. The training alone would likely far exceed the total cost/effort of this dice thing, nevermind the cost / opportunity cost associated with actually fixing whatever vague "ball-suckiness" is bothering you regarding the Roku app.

I think this (dice) is a great idea. There are several shows I never watched when they were "in season" but came across by digging in the vaults if you will, and was very pleased with the results! (Such as Fate/Zero) This dice is making dredging the deep much more interesting!

So, KUDOS TO YOU CR!


And thank you for all the great apps and features!

Finally, now we don't have to roll percent dice to decide rows and d4s for random shows on Crunchy.

Except the Roku app will still suck balls no matter how much time they put into it, since they are designing it around a console app that was worse than the Roku channel that they replaced.

That's due to Natsume Yujin-cho Shi (which is actually the fourth series, not "season two") being listed separately by CR from the first 3 series, which are all grouped together.

I suspect the separation was for contractual reasons, as the first three series list a different publisher than than Shi.

If the series can't be combined on the same page, the only way for CR to "fix it", would be to code in a number of exceptions to the random selection (and update them as necessary). That's probably more work than could be justified, especially since more lines of code = more chances to screw up.

I really like this, and have already found a couple of new series to watch because of it. Thanks, this was nice for you to do for us.
