YouTube Requires Pairing to View Videos

Lately when I use the YouTube app on my TCL Roku TV, when I try to watch several videos in a row it won't show them it says it needs to be paired with my phone. My roommate is also having this problem with YouTube on his Samsung tv. Is anyone else having this problem, it's a major pain in the @$$?I don't want to pair my phone because sometimes my phone is turned off when I'm watching my TV, and I shouldn't have to pair them to watch YouTube.

Re: YouTube Requires Pairing to View Videos

I've never encountered that, and I'm using YouTube almost daily on multiple Roku devices.
Roku Stick (3600), Ultra (4640), Ultra (4670), Premiere (3920), Insignia 720p Roku TV, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Nvidia Shield, Windows 10 Pro x64 running Serviio and Plex on a wired Gigabit network.
