Trouble with YouTube TV Live Guide and viewing channels on Roku 3

Used to be that I could watch a channel on YouTube TV and then go up to the Live guide and look for whatever else was available/playing.  The current channel would continue to play but in background.  Now when I switch to the Live Guide the current channel goes away completely and only the guide is displayed.  The channel that I was watching goes completely away and it is as if no selections have ever been made.  I have rebooted the Roku 3 from the tv.  I have unplugged the Roku.  I have unplugged the tv.  I have removed the YouTube TV app from the Roku and reloaded it.  I have tried everything.  Need solution to this problem please.  thanks for the help everyone.

Re: Trouble with YouTube TV Live Guide and viewing channels on Roku 3

The channels themselves create and maintain their apps.  Roku just provides the platform on which to run them.

YouTube has been dinking around with its YouTube and YouTube TV Roku apps for several weeks now.  It seems every time they get one problem fixed they create another.
