Just an update that the problem everyone is having with YouTube not loading on ROKU is also happening on my Chromecast so I'm inclined to believe the problem is on YouTube's end. All my other apps work fine on both devices.
I'm in Houston, add me to this list of YouTube not working. YouTube works fine on my PC and my SmartPhone. The Roku has NO problem with any other channels. I have reset it multiple times and unplugged it several times. I have uninstalled YouTube and reinstalled. It was working an hour ago. Then the Not Connected error came up. At that time, it let me check the connections. But a few minutes later, it got worse. Now it locks up when I select YouTube. I have to click back to the main menu with the Home button.
I was about to order a replacement when I ran across this thread. So now I have to wait. What i don't understand is why it's only on the Roku when I have no problems on my PC or SmartPhone.
I have the same problem. I think this is happening because they want us to buy a new roku system. It's all about greed. I am so sick of it. And in addition to this problem that seems to occur every time they want you to buy the latest device is, there is no actual customer tech support. No human being you can talk to. I am sick and tired of roku. I think I am just going to use my tv for streaming, it's new enough to where I don't have to have that **bleep** roku device anymore.
