    I love 1.4.1. Have it on one of my Sony Google TV's. I made the mistake of letting my other box upgrade and hate the updated interface/flow. Looking for a way to get 1.4.1 back on that box. Tried factory reset but that takes me back to 1.3.x. Can the older versions be downloaded somewhere? Or can I somehow get the one I have on one box installed onto the other one?

    I am not exactly sure which version this is but I guess it is worth a try.

    com.google.android.youtube.googletv-1

    This also side loads on Android sticks and Tablets and looks great.

    I thought the recent update fixed the major issues.

    I always use the HD 1080P mobile YouTube app mod instead.
    It has the three wireless types including Wi-Fi.
    Unlike the original app,it has advanced settings for the mod options.

    Just Google "xda YouTube mod" to find it.

    I just wanted to clarify - does the latest version of the GTV YouTube app work good for you? The latest version is 1.7.3 and was updated on 12/26/2013. How would you rate it? I noticed that on the Google Play web site there has only been 1 new rating since the latest update on December 26th - so I kind of had a hunch that means the latest version was an improvement. The one rating was negative and only 1 star - so I was curious for another opinion. One rating isn't enough to be meaningful - but the lack of new ratings might mean most users are satisfied overall.

    *My Logitech Revue doesn't download apps so I can't test it myself.

    I like the newest version, I had been sticking with older versions until a couple weeks ago. I have only updated one box so far and will continue to test it before upgrading the others. Previously I was able to uninstall updates with YouTube but I can't find that option anywhere now.

    I updated to the December 2013 release to check it out but it isn't any better. The thing that bugs me the most is that it looses track of what I'm watching. With the old one I could browse through thumbnails of my subscriptions and watch them individually - with the back button returning me to the list - where I last was. That view showed more thumbnails on the screen too. Now I have to scroll through a smaller horizontal view of them and if I hit the back button by mistake I have to scroll repeatedly right to get back to where I was.

    They also did away with displaying the text summary of the video and the thumbs up rating.

    Yes this lost place bugs the heck out of me too. I really wish they would fix that.
