I have a wired Tivo Stream 4K and since the latest update, I constantly get video freezing while the audio continues playing. I have a great connection, fast internet, and still have not been able to figure out a solution. Its almost unbearable to watch because of how often it freezes. If I back up and then fast forward, it continues to play. I've tried a factory reset, deleting YTTV and reinstalling, rebooting router and Tivo Stream 4k and nothing makes a difference. Help! Any suggestions?

I have the same problem.
I think the Youtube TV update broke it.
So bad I switched back to FireTV for now.
I also tried everything like resets. How do you open a ticket with Youtube tv or Tivo, hope they are reading this.
Not usable, need to roll back last update.

Go to settings -> Apps - Youtube TV -> Uninstall updates
This will revert the Youtube TV app to an older version

Still not usable
Must not be a YouTube TV update as there was nothing to roll back. Or maybe once I reinstalled the rollback option is not there.
Also today there was an Andriod Update, I did that, rebooted twice, reinstalled again.
Still not working.
Seems worse on local ABC and NBC channels , can reproduce quickly on them. Other channels work great.

I was seeing this before the most recent update, but what's strange is that (for me at least) it's only on certain channels and only when watching live TV. I never see the freeze when watching something recorded. I've seen other posts of people seeing similar problems on other devices, so it may be more of a YTTV problem than specifically TiVo Stream.

Also having this same issue as the others with video freezing mostly on youtube tv local channels and pbs. The Stream is a great little device so hopefully this is an easy fix.
Has anyone installed an older version of the youtubetv app and know which is the latest version without the issue? Also which architecture is the stream 4k armeabi-v7a, arm64-v8a or x86?

Also noticed last night that switching the video format to 480p fixes the issue of freezing video. Not really an ideal fix but its something. Is there a way to report this issue to tivo so they can take a look? It must be a codec issue with local channels or at least something that can be easily detected in their logs.

I use TS4K with YTTV fairly frequently to play back cloud recordings and have yet to run into any issues. (Don't tune to anything live though).

Issue is only with live channels like NBC and ABC. Possible codec issue
Open a Tivo case Three weeks ago. Still no answer other than reboot or reset and we cant duplicate the issue. Maybe if everyone opens a case they will believe us that there is an issue. They
