More and more recently I am experiencing a black unresponsive screen when loading apps such as Netflix or YouTube. I often have to reboot the V6.
My Roku works fine. I wondered what the cause might be.
Go to Answer
Does the app load first, and then give a blank screen? or just not load?
Can you still use OnDemand?

Thanks for replying.
Netflix flashes up then returns to the app meno. Iplayer just freezes. YouTube is the same.
Network says 48% marginal
Test connection is successful

If, by this, you mean the WiFi signal strength in the V6 network connections screen, then there's probably the underlying issue.
This could cause various issues with OnDemand & streaming, and the apps not loading could just be another one of those.
Has it always been like this?
No it hasn't always been like this. Yes that's my WiFi strength. 47% now.
It seems to have coincided with the 'hub upgrade' that was automatically applied last month that has caused intermittent drops on WiFi
My family use their mobile data usage as WiFi is too unreliable.
We also have 10m cables running as well now.
I'll try a different frequency for the V6 as it's on 5 GHz at the moment
Does YouTube or ITV Hub go to a Black screen and back to the App menu?
Hi sorry for the delay.
All apps were going black. However something has changed as they are all fine.
Unfortunately the TV is pixelating a lot and for some reason the 5Ghz WiFi was disabled.
No idea why

Pixellation on live TV is often a signal fault, if a single reboot fails to resolve.
Thanks for using the forums to get this issue with your TV services looked into, I am sorry if this has been causing some frustration. I would be more than happy to look into this for you.
I am glad to hear the problem with your Apps has rectified itself now, but as with most technology - when one thing gets fixed, something else becomes broken! Lol
I've already taken the time to look into your services and can see Japitts was correct, your set top box's specs are in need of an engineer as they are out of balance.
I've booked an engineer for you now for the earliest time slot, you can see it on your Online Account and even change it if it's not suitable 🙂
Please let us know how the visit goes!
Thanks for looking into this. It's interesting that something seems wrong.
Is it a coincidence that my WiFi rebooted last night and 5Ghz returned?
Thanks for booking an engineer. I'll take a look at my account
Thank you 😊
