YoutubeTV Live guide issues


Pauldog00

Question

Hey all,

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.

Thanks

I have found a work around that doesnt include having to turn the TV off and on.  If you clear the YoutubeTV app from the "recents" section of the apps taskbar (pressing the home button)  this will fix the issue.  I wish LG WebOS could put something in place where when you turn off the TV every time it clears the apps out of this section.

      I have LG TV UF6800. TV is working well. The youtube app had worked well until a couple month ago. The yoyube hangs very often after playing advertisement. It also hangs after playing a long video (around 30 min). By "hangs" I mean it is still there, showing the youtube UI, but we cannot play any video. Just black, staying there forever.
      I am using wired network on the TV. 
      I tried updating app, nothing. I googled and tried unpluging power while watching...., no help. BTW the youtube (with the same user) works well on PC and iPad.
      If you think this is not LG's problem, please advise to whom I should contact.

      Below are the details of my model and OS information.  With this version, there is no support for Sony LIV and voot app. It will be beneficial if such apps are also provided.

      On an LG CX 55, two minutes into episode 4 -- "The Tomb" -- of the series Moon Knight on Disney+ there is a scene with statuettes in niches each lit by an oil lamp. As the flames flicker, dark blotches jump around some of the niche walls.
      These are certainly unintended artifacts.
      Can someone confirm wether this is a CX (only) issue?

      Hello,
      We are a company developing streaming apps for our customers. As-to enhance developer / tester / any other teams experience into LG universe, and be able to quickly test any environments we have (dev / staging / production), we'd like to be able to install apps that aren't removed after Developer Mode expires, or aren't visible/listed to the public store.
      We looked upon the idea to extend Developer Mode session with a Crontab with specific accounts for each TV, but some TVs are stopping the Developer Mode when being powered down, so it doesn't seem the most industrialised idea.
      Let me know what we can do to answer that issue !
      Thanks !
