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.

      LG50UK6950. The programme guide is slow to load, and has to re-load for each page. My previous LG tv (a 49UK.....) was the same.
      Samsung, Panasonic, Toshiba and Sony are almost instantaneous.
      Is this a hardware problem, eg lack of memory, or software - in which case is it ever going to be fixed?

      When I try to watch replay or live TV from Belgian casts in the browser I have error messages:
      - for Auvio (RTBF) it is purely incompatible
      - for RTLPlay , the message says that the browser version is too old and has to be updated.
      But...
      It is impossible to install alternative browser on LG smart TV, or to update the LG one.
      WebOS is not really a good idea, or at least it should be more "open" for the apps that are not proposed or updated.
      I know it is possible to share from other machines (tablet, phone or computer) but I want to use my TV "alone" too!
      Do you have a solution (other then buying a chromecast or equivalent device?)
      Thank you

      Yes! Freesat does work on the LGE TV that I have 2021 model. Using a SKY DISH and LNB in the UK. Okay now that sorted out.
      With WEBOS 3.34.95
      Then you launch the guide on freesat the preview window does not display a picture. Just says downloading" If you then select a channel from the guide the TV picture is shown.
      Looks like a bug to me...
      Also on the channel info screen. The displayed info screen box is very big and the font size is very very small even on a quite large TV.
      It would be better is a bigger font could be displayed.
