When viewing their uploads there doesn't seem to be a way to get back to the subscribed channel list either?
Finally, someone that's having the same problem as me. I think the new interface is junk.

I've been corresponding with Tivo for almost a week. They have no solution. Other than:
Thank you for contacting TiVo Customer Support.

I've got over 30 subscriptions. 2 of them put all their links and videos into playlists. With this new (improved??!!) version of the Youtube app, you cannot see playlists. I don't know why this is an "improvement". People that post videos on Youtube, put them at the top level, put them in playlists, subscribe to other users. There's a lot that you cannot access with the new version of Youtube.
I cannot place a service call to Tivo to continue on with this because I have very restricted phone service.
I was switched over just under a week ago. Lost a lot of functionality. I was switched from what youtube.com/tv is calling "YouTube on TV for Older Devices (most 2012 models and earlier)" to "YouTube on TV for Newer Devices (2013 models and select 2012 models)."
There's no directions anywhere for how to use this thing. And, I think it's very non-intuitive. I've worked on senior level helpdesks for over 13 years and I'm having trouble with it.
A couple of things that you might find helpful:
(1) If you are playing a video and you press the [down-arrow], you will see related videos. For example, if you are playing a video from Fred, you will see additional videos from Fred. If Fred posts links to videos from Mary, you will see additional videos from Mary.
(2) If you press this button on your Tivo remote,
it will take you back (not always) a level at a time. Most times you can get back to the level where your subscripions and personal playlists are listed (but, not always). Sometimes, the only solution is to hit the [clear] button on the remote which will take you back out so you can re-launch Youtube.
(3) Also, I discovered a kludgy way to see other people playlists: add one of their videos to your "Watch Later" list. While watching their video, you can press the [down-arrow] to see other videos that they have. If they post links to other people, you will see the other person's videos.
If you want to put in a ticket to call them, I can give you the text of what we're tried so far (and the ticket number) ... just basic entry-level troubleshooting which didn't solve anything. It's a problem with the Youtube interface.
