Xbox one smartglass youtube conflicts?

I love using my universal remote and smartglass with my xbox one but neither will work with the youtube app. The only way I can select anything in youtube is with the xbox one controller. Any suggestions with how to fix this problem?

What device are you using SmartGlass on?


If you're on Android or iOS (don't know about win devices), have you tried pairing the YouTube app on your Phone/Tablet with the X1 YouTube app? It's my preferred way of interacting with the Xbox ONE (or 360) YouTube apps.


I think SmartGlass with the X1 YT app is limited, but it should just work. Though I can't remember if I've tried SG with YT yet.
