YouTube TV Home Screen Select not working

I just upgraded my Roku to the newest 2019 Ultra. Now when I go to YouTube TV and try to select a show displayed on the Home screen under "Top Picks For You" it just spins and spins and never opens the stream for that channel. I have to exit YouTube TV and start all over. I then go to the Live listing and select the show from there... Works fine most of the time.

I've rebooted several times, I'm on a hard wire network connection, not wireless and no change.

Seems to be most frequent with ESPN and CNN.

If youre having problems with a Premium (paid) Channel I would definitely deal with them directly.

You Tube TV is different than You Tube Channel which runs fine on mine.

But you can always vent here.

There was just a Major Update so make sure youre running 9.2.0

Roku Ultra ---Ethernet rules---

From now on if people dont upvote me and do as I say I will consider holding my breath and selling my Roku's.

Currently running 9.2.0 build 4131-46

My older Roku Ultra in another room has no problem with selecting shows/channels (including CNN & ESPN) from the home "Top Picks For You" options and the Roku Ultra I replaced never had this issue.

Well keep track of the time for exchanging it. Maybe you got a funky one.

Did you check out the link?

Just rented the movie Richard Jewell and it will not play. The money has already been taken out of my account. It acts like it wants to play but don't.

@ruxpin 

Thanks for the post.

What channel are you having this issue with? Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves. Have you tried reaching out to the channel provider yet to see if they are able to resolve the issue?

Thanks,
Danny
