Those aren't fixes, they're replacements. Buying new hardware doesn't fix the TiVo.
Good luck with that.
Not to mention, anything but Tivo is likely to have a more modern/updated app.
Very curious what they, or you, did. I have the same problem with my Tivo Roamio for the past few days. No way to get over to the left hand vertical menu bar! So no way to search, or access my subscriptions. I also tried resetting the Tivo with no help.
I really have no idea. It just didn't work for about a week, then started working. I had assumed they pushed a new version of the app, but maybe not.
Mine is still not working - I just tried all the tricks (restarting, disabling & re-enabling the app) but no change.
I'll keep an eye on it and update here if it starts working.
Of course there are many other ways to stream YouTube - but that's not the point. Tivo is my main box I watch through.
YouTube on Tivo has worked great for years, but is only recently broken for me.
Exactly! I really liked the Tivo YouTube user interface. Now it's broken! I'm hoping somebody knows how to fix this.
There is no way to fix it..... until it updates itself.
My Roamio OTA started doing this today. The remote key function which no longer works with the YouTube app works with other apps. Hopefully a fix for the YouTube app is on someone's radar for a speedy fix.
You really don't know what you're missing, such as the joys of faster video navigating, instant playback, easy skip-around etc. I never knew how bad the experience on Roamios was (with constant 'Loading...' screens, painful FF/REW etc.) until I got modern hardware to run apps.
It's cheap enough, do it.
Same here. Stopped working for me yesterday. Cannot access the left nav bar.
Same here for the past couple of weeks.
YouTube has announced that it will reduce streaming quality for users around the world. March 24, 2020.
I'm not sure if this is when I lost the ability to scroll right and search for a video. One fix was to clear cache but couldn't figure out how to do this. Still looking for a way to fix.
Follow up to last post, I went to another TV with a Tivo Mini and was able to use search. This means it's not a Tivo or Youtube problem. It's probably a cache problem on my main Tivo which I use Youtube frequently???
It is a Tivo or YouTube problem... Tivo has had more than one notice of the problem as has YouTube...
I have done multiple full power shutdowns, restarts and reconnect to the Tivo service. The problem still persists only on the main box.
I suspect there is a slightly different version of the app between the two, unfortunately I cannot get to see the version of the app on the main box since I can't get to the Settings/About menu in the main box.
Still not working here.
Fails with TE3. Works with TE4.
I don't know how to check for TE3 or TE4 but mine definitely is an older system. So why did my Youtube allow search up until a few weeks ago(?) is still the question. Is the answer that Tivo is not supporting TE3 anymore? Has anyone been successful in getting this resolved? Just asking, thanks.
You can tell if you are on TE3 or TE4 by going to System Information and look at the Tivo software version, v20.7 (TE3) or v21 (TE4).
Also, the menu backgrounds are blue in TE3 and black in TE4.
My Roamio in TE3 still works in YouTube to access the left side menu.
If you run down the options on the left, there is one that will show you the version. I have several, but they all start with 202004xx, so the app has recently changed. Menu on top is an older version.
