Re: YOUTUBE TV DVR hangs on playback

Yeah I have already tried removing and reinstalling multiple times which causes an issue in and of itself because of the apps being attached to every tv via my Roku account.

So not only does it not fix the problem but then I have to re-initialize my account on every tv again.

Again, doing the same task in the same app with the same programs cause no issues on one of my Roku tvs but has significant problems on this 55US5800 tv which is slightly older than the one where there are no problems.

Re: YOUTUBE TV DVR hangs on playback

I should mention this only happens with the YouTube tv app for DVR and some live programming when changing channels.

It does not happen with the VOD feature.

@kmunge22 

Thanks for following up. 

If you are still unable to play videos from one channel after attempting the suggestions above, we suggest you contact the channel provider's customer support team to report the issue and inquire further about the channel's features and functionality. Channels on Roku are maintained by the channel developer themselves. 

Don't hesitate to contact us if you need further assistance in the future.

Re: YOUTUBE TV DVR hangs on playback

I have contacted YouTube TV support and worked with them quite a bit.  They do not see a problem on their side.  I would tend to agree as I have no problem with playback using the YouTube TV app installed on my LG television.  In fact, if the playback hangs using the Roku, we immediately go to the YouTube TV LG tv app and it plays fine.

Re: YOUTUBE TV DVR hangs on playback

I have a Roku Ultra and a Sony Bravia and have the same issue on YouTubeTV. I believe it usually happens on longer recordings… like a long sporting event (golf, soccer, football) that I’ve recorded. I tried everything with various levels of success… fast forwarding till I see the preview window works sometimes. Today I was trying to watch The Open (an 11 hour recording of golf on USA network) and none of the usual tricks worked. While watching a black screen with the spinning ring, I arrowed down on the Roku remote. Then arrowed left to the small HD icon and changed the Auto (1080enhanced) to 720p60 and boom!, the coverage started to play. After watching for about 15 minutes I did the same thing and switched it back to Auto (1080enhanced) and it just kept playing with a higher resolution picture. BTW - the 780 picture was not bad at all, I’d have watched it with that no problem but I wanted to see if I could switch back to better HD once it was going. Hope this trick works for others.
