Hey Samuel,

well THIS was exactly the reason I signed up in this board. Since the last update of the YT app on my LG 55UF7709 I can confirm the exact same behavior. Really annoying. I deleted the app from my TV and reinstalled it with no luck. Currently no solution 😕. I do have an ugly to use workaround so far: I press the arrow keys to move forward and backwards in the stream.

Best
Andreas

A recent YouTube update on my LG smart 55 inch TV has disabled the slidebar on the YouTube app. I'm unable to forward or reverse a video, the video starts replaying from the beginning.  Has anyone experienced a similar issue? 

Hi @Samuel K

Unfortunately YouTube update their app whenever they feel like it and LG has no control whatsoever over their actions.  The YouTube app is an example of a hosted server programme and as such it can be upgraded by YouTube without any quality control oversight by LG:

You will find that the app that is installed on the television is itself very rarely updated, so I am afraid it is YouTube that needs to be told of your problems.

      Hello -
      after no updates for approx. 2 years, the TV updated to 06.00.03 about 4 months ago, now to
      this latest, which is described as a bug fix release.
       
      This release has changed the  TV picture, it is too bright, almost garish, with a decidedly blue color cast -
      Let's be honest, a stable and properly balanced image was never one of the TV's strong points, now it's almost unwatchable.
      Why would anybody update the TV firmware picture settings of a 4 year old TV in such a drastic way?

      I have a 2014 LG Web os smart TV    ( 65UC970T ) and I don't have any access to apps.  There used to be a selection of apps and now there's none. How do I access them?

      LG TV  SJ800V.  (2018 UK model).  Was  06.00.20  then became  06.00.25 and made no difference to this issue:
      Search page on YouTube had a microphone symbol.  This enabled Voice Search.
      Just recently, (whilst being 06.00.20),  MICROPHONE VANISHED.  It can't be got back.  I know of two other SJ800V TVs  with the same issue.
      I know of another two similar LG TVs - but different model numbers - which have no problem.  
      LG says it's probably a YouTube issue. Tried uninstalling and re-installing YouTube but no good... 
      What can be done? This TV is only 4 years old and I and I really don't see why I should have to  go and buy a new one...

      Edit: well, had to reset defaults, fixed after that. 
      Hello. in recent days I've updated my LG OLED65CXRLA to 03.23.35 firmware, after that HDR won't work at all.
      I own this tv since February, and never had any issues with it, and for the first time I've encountered problem and serious one at that,
      Before said update HDR worked without any issues from any source - PC, PS4/Xbox, TV's apps like YouTube and Plex. After update HDR doesn't work from any of said source. 
      How it happens: when I launch any HDR content, tv blicks, in upper right corner appears HDR notice, but picture becomes very dark. It's the same as if for example you try to run any YouTube's HDR clip on display without HDR support.
