Youtube crashes after 6 hours. Bandwidth saver has been OFF the whole time.

It's not the bandwidth saver because that setting has been switched off and it continues to happen every night. I put on my youtube playlist of sleep affirmations and when I wake up, it's back on the home screen. Help! I'm so frustrated.

Re: Youtube crashes after 6 hours. Bandwidth saver has been OFF the whole time.

Agree it's not the Roku "bandwidth saver" magically springing back to life -- that kicks in at 4 hours.

But YouTube itself has a similar "are you still watching?" popup -- sorry don't know at what interval it kicks in.   I also don't know if it waits for a response for a while and then shuts down like Roku bandwidth saver does, or if it just waits forever.
