Hi all,

My venerable RCRP05B is starting to fail after 7 long years of abuse (kids) and I grabbed myself a Nevo C2 off ebay. One thing I wanted to do was use the actual Roku icons for the soft buttons and I found a way to get them directly from the device using only your web browser!

1) find the IP address of your Roku in Settings -> Network -> About (may slightly differ depending on device, I only have a Roku TV)

2) Enter the following address in your web browser of choice:
http://yourRokuIPaddress:8060/query/apps

It will return a list of the apps currently installed on your Roku. Here's part of mine:
Code:

<apps>
   ......
   <app id="tvinput.hdmi2" type="tvin" version="1.0.0">Computer</app>
   <app id="tvinput.dtv" type="tvin" version="1.0.0">Antenna TV</app>
   <app id="13" subtype="ndka" type="appl" version="7.1.2017082110">Amazon Video</app>
    ....
</apps>

and so on. Note the id attribute after the apps you're interested in.

3) Open another tab and enter:
http://yourRokuIPaddress:8060/query/icon/id of the icon you want

So if I want the icon for antenna TV, I'd put in
http://yourRokuIPaddress:8060/query/icon/tvinput.dtv

And voila! You're given a 290 x 218 transparent PNG of the icon used in the Roku menus, ready to be resized, edited, and loaded into your RMIR file. Do note you have to right click -> save as and change the file type to "All Files", then append ".png" to the end of the file name.

Merry Christmas!

Great find. Thanks!

Another way to browse/download all icons is on the channel store site:
