If anyone else is having this issue, please report it via your Roku device. Here's how you do it:
Done...hopefully many will do this so we get their attention asap
I cut my xable and watch youtube 90% of the time, especially music
Same problem. Using Roku 1 on a 4:3 TV.
I did a factory reset and YouTube was back to normal. However I noticed that text screens in other apps such as Amazon Prime were a little squished. I checked the Display Type in the Roku settings and it saying I was connected to a 720p widescreen. So I set it back to a 4:3 standard definition. Mistake. YouTube went back to being "zoomed in ".
Sounds like u have hi/def tv ,hook up thru hdmi, all of the problems are us folks using rca/composit hook ups on older tvs
Nope, using composite. Since my last post I did the reset again. Once again back to 720p. However this time my actual video was distorted. Looked like a 16:9 being forced into 4:3. Even in YouTube. It was not "zoomed" but the widescreen video was being forced into 4:3.
So I went on ahead and set the Display to 4:3 SD from 720p. The odd thing is that even though it was in a 720p, 16:9 ratio there was no choice for a 720p. Just 4:3 SD or 16:9 SD. Choosing 16:9 SD seemed to have no effect on anything.
I have just sent an email off to hopefully a human being at roku support. It. Said will get back within 24 hours so maybe we can find out if they are working /aware of the problem....I got a feeling a smart tv will be in my very near future... then sadly the roku player goes in the trash....
Thank you for emailing them. Im on a Roku 1 on an old panasonic big screen. They wont let you call or do online support for that model, ugh.
today when I checked, the initial screen was appropriately sized. I was able to sign in, and access my feed. That is the good part. When I try to watch a video, it gets too big again. One step forward one step back.
I am also on a ROKU 1
