Every channel on my device is working EXCEPT YouTube. It's a recurring problem. What gives?

I put YouTube on my roku device because I've purchased a lot of my favorite shows and movies there. Ever since uppi removed YouTube TV from your selection of channels, my basic YouTube channel has constant problems. Most of what I have there is not on any of the other channels. I'd really like to be able to watch what I want, when I want. When will this be fixed?

What model Roku device do you have? Some users have reported issues with the basic Express models, while others have had no issues. I used it for a couple of hours yesterday on my Ultra 4670. 

But Google is who is responsible for the functionality of the channel. Roku has not released any OS updates that might have caused problems. So unfortunately, Google is the one that has to resolve the issue.

Dumping Roku and going full-on Google buying Chromecast.

And that might be exactly what Google is trying to do. I have Android powered devices, but I won't pay for a Google device.
