Re: Youtube app is laggy and keeps freezing

Hello Raheem15,

 

Thanks for letting us know about this.

 

Has YouTube showed any signs of improvement since your post?

 

Also does this happen on any other app such as Netflix?

 

I have sent signals to your box so if you could reboot by the mains and let me know if it's still the same please.

Re: Youtube app is laggy and keeps freezing

Thanks for getting back to me Raheem15,

 

I would like to investigate this further so I'm just going to need you to send me a private message with your address, post code and name on the account please.

 

You will be able to send me a private message by clicking on my name and selecting 'send me a message' on the right.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you

Re: Youtube app is laggy and keeps freezing

Hello Misscathro77,

 

Thanks for posting and I'm sorry to learn you're also experiencing problems with your TIVo® box.

 

Is it freezing on certain apps or live TV?

 

I have sent signals to the box so please ensure all cables are secure at the back of the box and reboot by the mains to check if there's any improvement.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

It's quite simply the case that the YouTube service is faulty and has been for several weeks (months?) now.

Re: Youtube app is laggy and keeps freezing

It's been a month since the last post here and this problem is still happening. Have the technicians not managed to sort anything? I have just received a new tivo box and YouTube is laggy . It pauses every 10 seconds or so.
