New Roku update 10 bricked Netflix, Amazon, AppleTV, etc

Since the latest Roku automated update on April 21 Netflix, Amazon and AppleTV do not longer work in my system.

Roku Home looks fine, but once I try to open one the aforementioned channels the display goes blank, sometimes with a thin green line on a side. Going back to Roku Home does not help, as it displays as a cropped image, making interaction with the menus impossible.

AppleTV behavior in this situation is slightly different, giving an HDCP warning before going blank or blank with a ting green line.

Everything was fine the day before the update. Nothing changed on my side to induce this behavior, and all my other devices work just fine as they did before the Roku's doomsday date on April 21.

Looks like Rokyu did bricked all my fav channels by using my old method of forcing it to display at 4k HDR 30hz, but by switching the setting to 4:2:2 and use the Auto Display setting it does work now.

Hope this hint helps someone else, I just got crickets here...
