YouTubeTV keeps signing out on Roku device

So I have been dealing with this annoying problem for a couple of months where youtubetv will signet seemingly at random times on one of the Roku devices I got in my house. Is there a solution? My two other tvs that run YouTubetv on fire sticks don't have this issue

Re: YouTubeTV keeps signing out on Roku device

Hi @rickrock987,

Welcome to the Roku Community!

Thanks for letting us know about the behavior you're experiencing with YouTube, and we definitely want to help you with this. We recommend performing the steps below to resolve the issue.

  • Remove the YouTube channel by highlighting it and pressing the star (*) button.
  • Restart the Roku device from Settings > System > System Restart.
  • Install the channel again.

You can also do a system update to make sure that the software version of your Roku device is up-to-date for optimized usage for streaming. To do this, go to Home > Settings > System > System Update > Check Now. Kindly check and see if you notice any difference.

For more troubleshooting steps with any channel playback issue, follow our Support link: How to resolve a channel playback issue | Official Roku Support

Keep us posted on how it works.

All the best,
Kash

Re: YouTubeTV keeps signing out on Roku device

Started seeing the issue occur about 2 months ago when I first signed in on my roku tv.  I have 6 roku's and this is the only one I am having an issue with logging me out of YoutubeTV. No changes recently. It happens every couple of days. If I am lucky, I can go a week without worrying about it. But it keeps happening.

Re: YouTubeTV keeps signing out on Roku device

I am having the same issue. I just recently purchased the Roku Express and was able to sign in on the first day, but had to re-sign in the second day (yesterday) and am having to do the same now. It appears as if once I am signed in for the day, I can come back to it without issue, but each day requires a new sign in.

Re: YouTubeTV keeps signing out on Roku device

I followed the instruction mentioned and it worked. This time for almost 3 weeks. Then it happened again, and now it is doing it about 2 times a week like before. 

I do not have that information you are requesting as I am not anywhere near the tv at this time. I can tell you that the Roku does update regularly as that was the 1st thing I checked when it started happening  months ago.

The problem fixed itself for about 6 weeks, but has now happened again twice in two days.
