YouTube subscriptions acting up.

Until yesterday, when I watched a video in the subscriptions tab of the YouTube App, I would hit the back button and it would take me back to the list of videos in the same spot as the video I just watched, so I could easily pick the next video I wanted to watch. But starting yesterday, hitting the back button now takes me to the top of the list, and I have to scroll down to find my spot and find the next video if I want to watch them in order. Is this a problem with Roku? Or is this another sign that Google has completely renounced its old "Don't be evil" motto?

That does sound like a pain in the, er, neck.  The most likely answer is that Google probably just sent out a YouTube code update that changed that function.

Ok. Thought it was just me. Same exact issues here on all of my roku sticks and the 4k box. I should have known it was time for another issue with YouTube to occur again. I mean I almost went a whole week recently without any issues.  

And yes some people will say just open the YouTube app on a phone and stream that way to my TV.  Sorry that's not an option here.  Lol

I am experiencing the exact same issue and it is frustrating. I hope it gets fixed soon.
