    Thanks for the link. I've signed up my Mini for the update. I really hope this fixes the Youtube app since it constantly crashes.

    20.7.2 was pushed to my mini this evening. After install, Youtube was able to play multiple videos on my watchlist without issue. I also got the "Skip Ad" option during the ads between videos which has been gone for awhile now.

    Very happy with the fix so far and will report back any issues.

    Skip Ad is still there on 20.7.1 but much more hit and miss with the new YT app. But I definitely want the crash fixes.

    Enrolled for priority 20.7.2 deployment several weeks ago. Still haven't gotten it on any device despite doing manual Tivo network syncs. Anxious to see whether YT issues was fixed. There are no release notes available anywhere for these fixes.

    Noticed this evening my Tivo Mini hasn't yet received 20.7.2, however Plex used to be located under Music & Photo on the main menu. It no longer is even after a restart. What would've caused it to disappear and is there any way to add it back?

    On new firmware, no crashes yet. Still seems unstable at times like it will crash, but it does not.

    Kinda dumb to throw out the baby with the water for an occasional crash. It's not like it happens constantly.

    I got the RC24 update and so far it's cured my mini crashes, but have only had it for a few days and 3-4 hours of viewing time. Definitely an improvement as the old firmware would usually lockup within an hour.

    I've also been experiencing this problem for many months, and just discovered this message thread, and want to contribute my observations.. I have YouTube Red, and play LOTS of videos on both my Tivo Roamio Pro and multiple Tivo Minis -- probably more than I watch any TV channel or other streaming service. The Roamio Pro never locks up, but all four Minis will eventually lock up if I play many videos. The problem does not seem to be the length of a video, but rather the number played. Because I have YouTube Red, I can confirm that the problem is not just caused by ads, as I receive none. Also, after a lockup and re-boot, I am able to watch the video that was trying to load when it locked up. So, it seems to me that the YouTube app could be failing to release memory when a video ends, resulting in a cumulative overload when a certain amount have been played. I usually can play between 6 and 10 before the lockup occurs. When I called Tivo, they said it is YouTube's problem. I don't accept this, however. A mis-behaved app might send us back to the Tivo menu, but it is Tivo's fault if they allow an included app to crash their Tivo Mini boxes. I've received the 20.7.2 update on my Roamio, but am still waiting for it on the Minis.

    Oh thank goodness! I'm glad it wasn't just me. Yesterday after getting the latest version I was able to watch You Tube for the first time in months.

    For me it would crash every single time regardless of the video. I was starting videos on an iphone or ipad then choosing the tivo from the cast icon.

    This latest update seems to have fixed the YouTube crashing issue for me. I updated the kitchen Mini about 2.5 days ago and YouTube has not crashed yet. This is the Mini that I use the most, and it would crash at least once per day. The video stutters when I press the down arrow to see other videos, but the box does not completely crash.

    Had another lock up after the update on one of my V1 Minis today. Same problem, freezes at Loading... screen requiring a power reset.

    So the problem may not be fixed after all.

    I have several Mini V2 boxes.

    The kitchen Mini locked up this past Monday, after about 4 days of no crashes. Since that latest crash, the Mini has not locked up again. This is a vast improvement over the once daily, or more, lockups that were previously happening.

    The Mini in the kitchen froze today again. I guess TiVo lowered the YouTube lockups to once every 4 days, or so. I also noticed that you can now see the links in the videos. It was very strange when a YouTuber would point to the links and you could not see any of these.
