    Just discovered the new YouTube app which:
    1) takes a few seconds to load
    2) does not support multi-key typing (text style)
    3) has a more difficult to use keyboard layout than before
    4) does not automatically search if you pause typing
    5) doesn't play any selected video - just a blank screen

    That's progress :(

    Aiui the old one was written specially by TiVo.

    The new one is the "standardised" one written by google
    - it now looks identical in interface to other YouTube apps on other smart TVs

    Can you not sign into your account on this one? I couldn't see where you might do it anywhere.

    I use YouTube on my TV to show 'favourites' to family that I bookmark on my Mac. I can't imagine ever using YouTube to just browse the sea of crap that's on there. So this seems a step back for me.

    Luckily, my Sony Bravia has YouTube too, so I can just switch to that instead. Seems a shame though.
