    It's been so bad the last 3-4 days I've contemplated moving to firetv but there is too many free streamer apps that are missing on that and the other platforms that I use often enough that it would be missed. That plus I have 4 units I would need to swap out so the cost would be excessive. All i can do right now is hope roku can get its head out of the dark place quick. I can't believe the stalls and skips youtube is experiencing, as I'm sure a large majority of streaming users jump on the app every day.

    After almost two weeks of really bad service of both youtubetv and youtube, all after the f/w 'upgrade' on roku to 9.3.0, either roku or YouTubetv/youtube made changes that got youtube back running to where it was before on 9.2.0 and youtubetv to better than it has ever been since I switched off of psvue *which had a cornucopia of problems that could never solve in the two+ years I subscribed*, it even seems that the first problem i noticed on day one if subscribing to yttv, the audio lipsync on their dvr service, seems to be solved. This latter problem appeared to be isolated to roku and Samsung hdmi tv's, as other models seemed to avoid it (proscan, visio, and others). Will continue to monitor that, but as I watch almost everything off the dvr, I'll know if it comes back.

    Yikes, sounds like Roku users really went thru the ringer. You would have thought that platform would have been a priority.
