YouTube TV restarting

Question

Model 55UM7300 has been exiting shows that we’re watching requiring us to restart them again. This happens when shows are in the Library or if we pause a show while watching it Live. 

We do NOT have this issue on the OLED65C9AUA that we bought at the same time at Costco on 12/1/19.

I've had this same problem with my two newer LG TV's. A 6 month old LG TV does not have this issue . I have done extensive testing trying to find a pattern and/or the "trigger" to reliably duplicate the problem but it seems to happen completely at random.  I have also have the same issue while viewing on my Android phone and casting the program to the same TVs. 

Sometimes the problem happens not at all during a program, other programs require multiple restarts, again totally at random.

I have been in email communication with YuotubeTV technical support on and off since 10/15/19 providing feedback, my testing results and tv error logs.  I receive only thanks yous and "we're working on it"  and "please be patient" in return. 

Also note there were many people here in the LG forums with the problem however the thread has mysteriously disappeared.

I strongly suggest anyone else with this problem comments on this thread and contacts both YoutubeTV and LG support to make them well aware of the problem.

I should mention,  while I have the pause and exit problem, my bigger concern is the program will crash while watching and revert back to either the program guide screen if live tv or the show's  library screen if viewing originated from there. 

I have put up with it for awhile accepting it as a program qwerk until it happend 3 hours into a live NASCAR race with 2 laps remaining. By the time I was able to launch the program again I had missed the end of the race 😢

      Having eARC engaged in the TV settings and sending Atmos etc to an eARC enabled Samsung sound bar causes the sound bar to power down after appx 18 minutes and diverts the audio to the TV's inbuilt sound system. Disengaging  eARC on the TV resolves the problem and still sends Atmos via ARC. This has only occurred since the most recent software upgrade. Anyone else experiencing this?

      My TV was bought in 2014 55UB850T-TA with WebOS TV version 1.4.0-2337 (afro-ashley). 
      I recently purchased the Disney hotstar subscription. But in the above version the LG content store does not show the Hotstar
      As per the news in this link we are eligible to upgrade to WebOS 2.0. But the automatic updates does not say it as WebOS 2.0 but still WebOS 1.4

      link hidden, please login to view Why this discrimination for old users of LG TV? How will I install new apps in this TV?

      Hallo, I bought a 55un74006LB smart tv in Italy. It seems not to have usb recording capabilities, according to the information on the italian website, but the UK site declare it has. I think it's the same product with the same functions, so how can I turn the live tv and usb recording on? I think I found the options in the service menu but I cannot change the values. Any suggestion?

      Just bought an LGLED-65UJ630 65INCH TV. Right away I started to get the message "This app will now restart to free up more memory". After searching the internet and forums, I now understand that this problem is huge, it has been going on for years now and it is right across many models of LG TV's.
      I have tried everything to fix this problem. It has the latest firmware. I did the factory reset and that lasted 4 hours before I got the message back. I turn off the TV and leave it for 10 minutes, maybe one hour later I get the message. I delete browsing history, maybe 10 minutes and I get the message..... you get the message.
      As I understand it, the problem is that LG TV's don't have enough internal memory, but they have shipped a ton of their "smart" TV's with this problem.
      My question is, has anybody heard anything from anybody, anywhere about a solution to this problem. I really want to keep this TV, but it is not fit for purpose in this state.
