View on roku flatscreen

1jazevedo

The default screen view of pandora on my new roku Tv was excellent - it showed the album cover hovering around my flatscreen and I loved it.  However after fast forwarding one song the view changed to a small icon of the album including progress bars and thumbs up vs down.  I hate it.

How do I get it back to the view I like, the default view?

Hi - I’m sincerely grateful for your reply.  Glad you spoke to your engineer.  

I wish that the advice your engineer provided was accurate.  But it’s not.  The screensaver is a different then entirely on my roku.  

there is a way to “back out” of the progress bar screen I am sure.  As you can see from the images the image I WANT to see (default) sits BEHIND the progress bar/album cover image on 1st picture.

 

this really does make me sad.  I know this is trivial and you have a great service.  But not being able to see the screen I wanted is truly a let down.

it’s not your fault.  It’s roku.  Any additional insights you might have would be valued.  This is not a screensaver issue by any means.

Hi @1jazevedo - thanks for posting!

I moved your message over to Other Devices, to keep things organized. 

You first description sounds like it may be a screensaver on Roku. Can you do me a favor and please send over a picture of the view you're seeing now?

Thanks!

Tanner I’m so happy you replied.  I will send TWO pics. 1) what I have now and 2) what I had that I want back.

 

 The Fist (below) is what I’m seeing now has the progress bar showing and thumbs up/down.  I DONT WANT THAT.  but look closely into the background of this picture and you will see that the view I want to see is sitting right behind the progress bar. also see how the previous songs always show?  I want that to go away.

Luckily I have a photo of how it used to look.  below picture is what I want!

 I’m sure there is a way but I have hit every button on the remote, deleted and reinstalled the Pandora app as well.  It’s stuck on the view I don’t way.  

please help thank you!!!

Thanks for the photos @1jazevedo.

I was talking to an engineer about this. The first picture in your post is the actual Pandora user interface with Roku. The second picture is a screensaver that is activated by your Roku.

There should be a setting in Roku to adjust how fast the screensaver comes on. You can place it on the minimum setting. This will allow the screensaver to start sooner. 

Hope this helps.
