I just bought a 2019 Ultra and running YTTV version 1.0 build 91000019 and get horrible issues.
works fine when I force display to 4K 60hz (HDR off)
HDR on at any resolution screws it up.
is this a Roku issue or an app issue? Figured with the brand new 2019 device it would have been fixed.
I have 3 TCL TVs here at the house w Roku. One of them started buffering w YouTube TV only this week. Works with all other providers. Not finding anywhere to change driver or bit rate. Where is display type and autodetect located?
TCL TV does not have display options in the setting. This setting only available on Roku streaming devices. The solution is press ok or pause and go to the 3 dots to select 1080
I have playback issues of buffering or grainy video, at least once or twice, just about every day. I have a Roku ultra, and ATT fiber with the 300MB service. Per the thread recommendation, I changed the video quality from Auto to 1080p, and will see if that helps. However as others have stated, i do not have buffer issues using Netflix, or other Roku channels.
I have started pausing playback, going to the 3 dots, send feedback, video is freezing and buffering. Maybe if enough people provide negative feedback, they will fix the software.
I have Roku Express and am having the same issues—maximum video quality is 720p. And the picture is a big downgrade from similar streaming services, such as Spectrum, Netflix, etc. which all utilize 1080p.
I’ve contacted youtube and they’ve been great—very responsive in trying to isolate the issue. But so far, they can’t seem to solve it either.
BTW, this is only with Roku. The youtube tv app works great with Apple TV, where most live channels easily permit 1080p video quality (and it’s a big difference).
I just started a free trial of the YouTube-TV app on my new Roku Ultra this evening. Picture quality is really quite bad, compared to OTA and even my Xfinity cable box. Seems like the video stream is highly compressed with YTTV.
Picture has blocky artifacts that are especially noticeable, jittering-around on the more solid-colored background walls in program scenes. I've tried setting everything to 720p and 1080P. Nothing seems to fix it.
I'm not going to be able to cut cable, if this is what it's going to look like. It's very distracting, and at times even hard to watch, compared to my cable box.
