    I own two different Android TV boxes and have tried 3 others and none will show LIVE YouTube events. All will play other recorded videos on YouTube but not live ones.

    I have tried different browsers with the following results:
    Built in Browser: A black screen with the message at the top "an error has occurred"
    Chrome Browser: Just a black screen - nothing else happens
    Dolfin Browser: A black screen with a loading film image and % loading, followed by the message "no network connection"
    YouTube app: A black screen with an intermittent, very brief flash of the play button.

    With all browsers I can switch to any other pre-recorded YouTube video and it will play without any problems (so there obviously is a network - ethernet), but not YouTube LIVE.

    My Android phone and tablet and those of friends and neighbours (on the same network via WIFI) will play live YouTube streams without any problem but all 5 TV boxes will not. All 5 give the same messages etc as above, so it is not just a faulty device but must be a settimg somewhere - or wont Android TV boxes play live streams? If not, why?

    Can anyone throw any light on this?
