TCL ROKU TV YouTube TV hangs/won’t stream properly
I have a new-ish TCL ROKU TV model 55S425, and I installed YouTube TV 6 months ago. No issues.
All of a sudden, it wouldn’t launch last night and I got several different error messages including “network not available try again later” etc. I have performed a whole host of steps including 1) power on off restarts 2) app uninstalls and reinstalls 3) network resets. And I have also tried those steps in different order. Nothing is working. It will launch now with an extremely slow response time and then play for a little while and then hang up.
I have also checked the internet connections and reset them the TV itself says the signal is “Excellent”. I have also checked the latest TV firmware update, which occurred this morning.
PLEASE NOTE: The app works perfectly fine on all of my other TVs (3) which have Amazon Fire Sticks also perfect on my iPad and iPhone. All other apps work perfectly
Re: TCL ROKU TV YouTube TV hangs/won’t stream properly
So this is a known issue? The TV just isn't getting as good a WiFi signal and speed as it should (tested area from other devices), and every few days it seems I encounter an issue. I did the software update when the TV was first installed. Hopefully a fix is coming soon?
