Hello @cwong,

 

Thanks for your post! We hope you've been keeping safe and well! 🙂

 

This is certainly a strange one! Does this issue happen with any other app when used via Ignite TV? It does sound like it may be isolated if it's only happening through the Ignite TV platform. 

 

Have you attempted to reboot your Ignite TV modem to see if this helps? You can do so by selecting the 'A' button on your Voice remote and then select 'Restart'.  Please let us know the results!

 

If the issue persists, please send us a private message to @CommunityHelps so we can assist you further. For more information on how our Private Messaging system works, please check out our blog.

 

Thank you!

Laura,

i do not know this issue with any other app via ignite tv, i do not see there is any chinese related apps or videos...

it only happens in the ignite tv platform ... i tried using the same youtube account in the web browser, smart tv, iphone without the chinese displaying issue...

i tried reboot the system many many times but no help to resolve this issue...

the chinese subtitle on the videos also showing the funny rectangular font...

i tried to change the preference of language in youtube, but it also display some funny characters, but i could guess which are the chinese options, i picked one of the three chinese options but there is no help to resolve this issue...

any solution from the public...

cheers and thanks

I have the same issue. I have FireTV and it was works ok. I don't have to make any change to have the Chinese Characters to display and I am using the same Youtube account. So definitely is the YouTube app from Rogers

Same issue here, Rogers Ignite YouTube third party app support many other small languages but ignore Chinese letter. Looks like they won't fix the problem, will return it to Rogers and stick with my Roku Tv for free.

I contacted support with a similar issue on my SmartStream and was told it's a Youtube issue. 

Apparently the Youtube app on the SmartStream is an app made specifically for Rogers that's separate from the app on smart tvs or browser. I believe Youtube just didn't bother adding Chinese support to the app so all the characters just display as rectangles.

I have the same issue, I am also using amazon fire tv stick, the stick is better than the Rogers Ignite box. I don’t know why Rogers made this device, it is useless, there are a lot of tv stream stick/box on the market, does Rogers want to help the company makes the Rogers Ignite TV box.
