We have a Samsung 46" HD TV (not a Smart TV). Prior to Saturday (and still), we have our TV service through XFinity/Comcast. Using their remote, we can get to a menu that offers Netflix, YouTube, and some others. For YouTube, we have been able to "set it up" to immediately display a full screen list of Korean Dramas/Movies (can scroll down for more). The same is true with our larger Samsung 65" Smart TV (for that one, we can get to YouTube with either the SmartHub Samsung includes with that TV, or (just like our other TV) the Comcast/Xfinity remote.
The other day we received a Roku 4661R device. Connected it to the 46" TV, successfully went through the set up, and added YouTube. But when we select YouTube, it shows Recommended "stuff". Also, when we do a search of Korean Dramas, the next screen that appears still contains the search "keypad", and a one row, horizontal list of Korean Dramas. To see more of them, it is necessary to scroll horizontally.
I looked through the settings of both Roku and YouTube, but could not see anything. So, what I'd like to have happen is:
1. When YouTube is selected, do not have "Recommended" appear. Instead, have the "list" of Korean dramas appear.
2. For that list of Korean dramas, need to have then fill the entire screen, and also let us scroll at least vertically for more.

Secondly, I do have a google/gmail account. But don't see how that makes a difference.
