+1 more (which is why I found this topic), changed from the 2017 ultra to the 2019 ultra at the end of november, have immediately noticed the youtube causing roku to crask bug since then. OCD system updater on my rokus and never had this problem on the 2017 ultra, but perhaps I updated to the 2019 just when the system software was updated...
I’m having the same issue and I have zero control of the Roku when it freezes. I have to wait until the system reboots itself. I don’t think we have lemons, I think it is an issue that needs to be addressed.
Same issue here, brand new Roku Ultra 2019 and it freezes up and reboots on it's own. I have 2 brand new Roku Ultras 2019 and they both locks up and then reboots. It is not just Youtube that does it but also on Hulu. This is not at set times but it happens at random. Some days it will just play fine then at other times it just wants to mess up.
I have a brand new Roku Ultra 2019 and I have never had a Roku before. I just set it up yesterday. It is crashing every 30 minutes on the You Tube channel. It pulled in the latest update when I set it up - but it is unusable for watching You Tube. I'm starting to regret my Roku purchase, but I can still return it for a full refund.
Is there a fix for this?
@MV Thanks for getting in touch. I'm sorry to hear about the issue you're running into. We're currently working with the channel provider to investigate this issue. Could you please provide more information about your specific setup and the content you are watching in YouTube?
- What is the exact title of the video you are watching inside YouTube when you observe this issue?
- Does this issue occur in any other channels on your device?
- Have you tried removing the channel from the Roku home screen, restarting the device from Settings>System>System restart, then once the device has rebooted, add YouTube back once more and try again?
- The next time this issue occurs, could you please generate an issue report tracker ID by pressing the Home button 5 times quickly, followed by the back button 5 times quickly on your remote?
I'll help pass this information along to the team so they can continue looking into this from there.
It is on the Cookie Swirl C channel streaming multiple episodes.
I'll try and send an issue report the next time it happens, but it freezes and then the Roku Ultra reboots itself so I'm not sure that will be possible.
I'll try removing and reinstalling, but it was just installed for the first time yesterday.
