YouTube for Google TV update 1.7.1

YouTube for Google TV update brings much needed bug fixes… or does it?


YouTube for Google TV has just been updated to version 1.7.1. The update doesn’t change much, but it brings some bug fixes people have been begging for. Improvements include bug fixes to the authentication and sidebar issues (problems collapsing).

This is great and all, but after testing the update for a bit I am still running into some problems. My internet keeps disconnecting when I access YouTube on my ASUS CUBE. I get an error and a “retry” option. I can fix it by disconnecting and reconnecting to my WiFi network, but it is still quite the annoyance.

I have seen reports of other people running into similar issues (including the “fixed” authentication bug), so please hit us up in the comments to let us know how this update is treating you. Are you having the problems with YouTube for Google TV?
