Screensaver keeps defaulting

Photo Stream only works on TV start up, not when tv is in idle mode. When in idle mode, it defaults to Roku logo Screensaver. How can this be adjusted? We want Photo Stream ALL THE TIME.

Re: Screensaver keeps defaulting

You won't get your selected screensaver while a video is paused.  I that what you're referring to?  You should get when idle at the Home Screen or within a channel/app when a video is not playing.

Re: Screensaver keeps defaulting

It can depend on what your Roku is doing when it goes idle.  When you are in a channel spp, some honor your overall Roku setting for choice of screen saver, some do not.
