    So, I have a Logitech Revue Box 2.1 and have been waiting anxiously on the upgrade to 3.1 Honeycomb

    Before I upgraded, I used to play Live Youtube Channels from (youtubedotcom/live) in Youtube Leanback (after adding the channels to my favorites on my pc)
    - Login on my PC to my Youtube Accout
    - Add the LIVE channels to my FAVORITES from (youtubedotcom/live)
    - Run Youtube Leanback (YouTube App) on the revue (running 2.1)
    - Go to My Youtube and sign in to my account (if not signed in already)
    - Play the Live channels on my FAVORITES list

    After I upgraded to Android 3.1 (Official Update), I tried to play the LIVE channels from the Favorites list but I get either of 2 error messages:
    - Unsupported Video Format
    - Could not Play video, press play to retry

    That doesn't sound right since I opened Google Chrome, Opened (youtubedotcom/live) and was able to play everything as normal

    Any idea why I can play the LIVE channels from Youtubedot.com/Live in Google Chrome but not in Youtube App?

    Thanks in Advance

    So for Clarification..

    I have been trying to use Youtube APP on Google TV 3.1

    For some reason, it does not play videos from youtubedotcom/live

    But, Here is the solution (Kind of anyway)
    I can open google chrome, go to youtubedotcom/leanback then login to my account and I can play the channels like on the old 2.1

    Not sure though why the app won't play the same videos.. I'll leave that for the developers in this forum to explain

    This brought back my enjoyment of the Leanback on GTV 2.0. Perfectly simple and obvious...but somehow I didn't think about it.
