I'm noticing some videos won't play the whole way through - even though the whole video is downloaded. Here is a 10 minute video that consistently quits around 4:10 on both my HR24s. They play the whole way through on my iPad and my PC:

No youtube for me either :(

I rebooted when I came home... I know my internet connectivity works, as I used DLNA to watch some online stuff, but no Youtube search under smart search.

How can I check if I got the update?

Count me as another person with no Youtube. My HR20-700 rebooted sometime in the middle of the night (as evidenced by the out of sort Playlist) and all I get is the Keyword red button. I have internet connectivity, but no Youtube. No Parental Controls. Guess this is not working as expected for a lot of people.

HR24/100

Software 0x454, updated at 02:23 AM, so overnight. Rebooted again at 6:30-ish PM, and it is now 9:15 PM.

No go.

Is there any way to change the video quality options like for 360p or 480p or hd? The same hd video on my google tv looks better then it does on my dvr.

I hope those having connection problems realize network services needs to be running successfully. The youtube feed requires the internet.

It's been over sixteen hours and still no Youtube. I have a HR22-100 receiver (Software:0x452). Have done a reset. Ran a System Test: All Items OK. VOD:Working. TV Apps :Working. Music, Photos & More:Working. I do not use Parental Control. Have checked all the settings on my PC. Using Smart Search I typed AAAAA as Doug suggested:No results. I even checked the Customer Information Channel this morning and interestingly it too is not working. As frustrating as it is not having the new Youtube feature it's more frustrating not knowing why! :mad:

video seems to be only 480i. I watched an HD trailer and have HR20 set for native resolution.

Also is there a good way to type a search (I don't text).

When you type AAA in smart search you should get a Youtube search option on right side of screen. Also I have at least 0x457 software both HR's. My HR20-700 updated today 0x458.

Oh .. Vevo.com is not part of Youtube. You won't find videos from Vevo.com on here.


I find it weird that the vevo music videos show in the search results of wii media center youtube but not on directv. vevo music videos can be viewed through youtube.

I have an HR20-700 running the 456 version of the software. I have the apps working and I can download VOD shows but no youtube option? Is my software out of date?

OK, it's weird .. but it doesn't change the fact that DIRECTV is not supporting vevo.com.

With all the problems I and others are having it appears the new Youtube feature should have stayed on the drawing board longer.

Been using it for weeks with no problems. My 1st search was ABBA, easy to type and I always liked the girls.

The problem I and others are having has yet to be identified. Until it is no solution will be available.
