Reporting back in. Same issues today so back at square one. I could try purchasing a new Roku Ultra if Roku would refund my existing. Otherwise I might try another model or make. I do have 3 Roku streaming sticks all working well with no hiccups.
Everytime I power on roku, go to YT TV, select a channel to play, it will spin forever on a black screen or sometimes say error, try again. Only way to resolve is if I do a roku system: system restart.
same issue (spin, error on playback) with Netflix we observed. Never an issue with Disney+, Prime, ESPN, Showtime and there were a couple others we tried which worked as expected.
Internet speed is blazing fast at 300mpbs. All network checks on roku pass. Device is wired as right next to router.
We're having the same problem with our Roku unit. It seizes the unit every few minutes, every time resulting in a reboot of the Roku. My wife watches YouTube a lot and it's enough of a problem I'm about to secretly delete the app. She won't know how to reinstall it and I can just tell her it's Roku's fault that it isn't available any more. 😉
Have you already tried removing the channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the channel back once more, specifically in that order.
In addition, how are you powering the Roku device? Is the device plugged into the TV USB port or is it plugged into a wall outlet?
Please keep us posted what you find out and we will be able to assist you further.
I just tried the "remove and restart and reinstall" tactic and almost immediately YouTube seized and rebooted the Roku unit. It is being powered by the monitor's USB port. No other app causes this problem, for what that is worth. My wife regularly watches Hulu, Netflix, the Roku Channel, and several others and I have taken several Great Courses via Kanopy without ever experiencing this problem.
Many channels on Roku are maintained by the channel provider themselves. Since the error only occurs on the Youtube TV channel, that's an indication that there's likely an issue within that specific channel that needs to be addressed with an update from them. We indeed recommend contacting Youtube TV Support to report the issue and get help.
