YouTube TV overheats Roku

I keep having this issue on my tv. It's a Hisense Roku tv. Not a Roku streaming stick. Not a Roku device. A tv. I only get the overheating warning when watching YouTube TV. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Re: YouTube TV overheats Roku

FYI, this happens on my TCL Roku TV as well. It is positioned with proper ventilation and I have no problems with Peacock or other apps on my Roku tv. I have restarted the tv and uninstalled, then reinstalled the youtube tv app which did not help. We also have a Samsung tv with a roku streaming stick which has never had any problems.
