YouTube TV has been experiencing quite a few technical issues recently. While some of the problems, including transient DVR delays, are now fixed, others are in the process of being fixed, according to the latest update from the YouTube TV team.

One of the big issues that had been plaguing YouTube TV members recently was the transient delays to the DVR. Basically, people were recording videos but they were slow to show up in the library, if at all.

While we had already heard that a fix was being prepared, it now seems as though that fix has rolled out, and the problem is now considered to be resolved.

The YouTube TV team has also apparently “heard your feedback” on a number of other library-related issues. According to the May update from YouTube post, these include:

  • The relevancy of Catch Up on your Favorites
  • Incorrect Watch badging
  • Ordering of Recently Recorded entries

Exactly when fixes for any of these issues will become available wasn’t provided, but the YouTube TV team is said to be currently working on them.

In the meantime, YouTube TV users can expect any audio/video synching problems during live playback to be resolved soon, thanks to fixes that are due to begin rolling out over the next few weeks. However, a VOD audio/video synching issue appears to require a little more time and work. According to the post, YouTube TV is “actively working” on a separate fix for that problem.

The end of May update also noted that a recent playback issue affecting 1st Gen Apple TV 4K players had been fixed, and that NFL Sunday Ticket had been upgraded to unlimited streams. Both of which has previously been confirmed.
