Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
The HDMI cable and adapter sort of works, but causes my Roku SE to think I have an HD TV when I have SD (Standard Definition) and stretches everything which is now 16:9 to fit a 4:3 screen. There is no way to compensate for that through Roku, YouTube, my SD TV, or the HDMI adapter.
I am hoping the YouTube brainiacs fix the problem they created instead of making us buy things, create work-arounds, or stand on our heads to make their channel viewable again.
Footnote: 01/10/2020 YouTube Update has corrected the problem for me as well.
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.
The recent update fixed my issues as well. I've also called and thanked youtube premium and asked them to thank the department that the devs work in for getting this resolved.
Thanks also to Roku, and everyone else for all the help and providing your information. If any of you are YouTube Premium Paying Subscibers. Just call them explain the inconvenience this caused and request a one month credit. They gave me one for the inconvenience for the past month.
