YOUTUBE screen is so big it does not fit my TV.

Jump to solution

This is a brand new problem, it was fine until last night. I have tried re-setting my ROKU, I have un-installed and re subscribed to YOUTUBE, and now I can not even sign in because the screen does not fit my TV. HELP! PLEASE! I need to access YOUTUBE for learning!
I wish there was a way to TALK to someone....this is not helping at all.

Thanks for continuing to share your experiences here. We have an update to share. 

YouTube has released an updated version of their channel (app) for some devices today that should help address this issue with display size. Please try checking for a system update in Settings>System>About, or remove the channel, restart your Roku device entirely, then add the channel back once more to download the latest version. 

Let us know if this helps!

 

Thanks,

Tanner

Same here. Is like it's zoomed in too much. Menu, videos and banners are getting cut because it's too large.  It was ok this morning but now it's too darn large.  Please resolve this.  I hate watching youtube on my phone.

Same here, Roku 1 SD, looks like the HD signal is crammed in a 4:3 screen

I think this problem is with the old ROKU unit. I had ROKU 1 for like 10 years and it's only happening on my kitchen TV which is an old analog 13-inch TV using RCA jacks.  All channels on this old ROKU are operating perfectly except Youtube which I like to watch cooking videos while I cook the same recipe.  I would be pretty upset if I buy a ROKU Express the only unit that has the RCA port connectors for analog TVs and then I might experience the same issue with Youtube.  Is anyone using a ROKU Express with RCA jacks and experiencing problems with Youtube?  I think I'm the only one with a ROKU 1 unit on the planet. LOL  I think it's time to upgrade to a new TV and ROKU unit for the kitchen. LOL
