Hello,When I put the feed url into Roku I get this error The server returned an unsupported content type. Was expecting ’application/rss+xml’, ’text/xml’, ’application/xml’ or ’application/json’ but received ’text/html; charset=UTF-8’. Any thoughts? Vince

Hey Vince,

It sounds like you have Direct Publisher to grab XML feeds, not JSON. WP Smart TV uses JSON, so you’ll need to switch your app to use JSON instead.

Here is a video that shows the issue.

That makes it a lot easier. The main problem is your JSON feed is not available because you don’t have Permalinks enabled on your site. Set them up in WordPress and that should fix the issues.

Let me know if you run into more 🙂

Hi There,

You need to have "Permalinks" enabled. See this document for instructions:
