Ive had an issue with the YoutubeTV app for months now and I cant seem to figure out a way to fix the issue. Even YoutubeTV support has no idea. Has anyone had the issue where they start up the YouTube TV app on their TV and the live guide lists shows for when they last powered down the TV? For example.... Say I watched TV the night before and turned off the TV at 9pm. (fully close the app and shut off the TV). Then say at 6:30am I turn on the TV, start up the YoutubeTV app and when I go to the live guide it lists the shows at the 9pm hour from the previous night. Has anyone else had this issue and were you able to fix it? Its almost like its holding on to cached memory but there is no way to clear the app cache. YoutubeTV claims that every time the TV is turned on/off that's when it clears the cache but that obviously isn't happening with the YoutubeTV app. The work around for now is re-closing the YoutubeTV app and opening it up again. When I restart the app then the live guide refreshes with the current time.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

As this feature (Screen Off) is mainly used for music, I think the `mute` button should have the same behaviour as the volume buttons and keep the screen off after pressing it.
I have a Sonos Arc, which is connected to my LG TV (lg65nano956na) using eARC. I have Google Assistant setup on the ARC, and everything is working fine. I am able to ask Google Assistant to Turn ON or OFF the TV, using voice commands - where Google Assistant then uses the Sonos TV Control Integration to execute the command, as my TV itself does not appear as a smart device in the Google Home app.
I am however facing one isse, that if the TV is already “OFF” and Google Assistant is asked to turn it “OFF”, then it turns ON. This in itself is not an issue (as it does not make sense to do).
The problem arrives when I use the “Turn OFF everything” command, to turn OFF all my smart devices. In this case, all my smart devices turn OFF, including my TV.. unless the TV is already “OFF”, in which case Sonos TV Control turns it back on.
I posted the above on the Sonos forum, and they suggested that it seems the CEC command acts like a toggle Switch , which is why it does not differentiate between ON/OFF commands.
Question is if there is a way to change how the TV reacts to the commands?
