Hey there pjmvc,
I'm sorry about the late response, thank you for being patient! I agree that those black bars on the YouTube suggestions are unappealing. Would you be able to submit feedback via Google TV so that the developers know that they don't look very good? That would be the best way to let Google know!
I look forward to your response, and if you have any other questions or concerns for me, please let me know!
Just wanted to jump in here to check to make sure that you saw our response. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns as I will be locking this in 24 hours.
Have a great day.
It looks like we haven't heard back from the OP so I'm going to go ahead and lock the thread. If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to create a new thread.
Have a great day,
