Please allow user to set the screen timeout

There are many times when I pause a show to work on something and when I come back the system is back on the home page. It looks like I can set the screen/app timeout at 20-minutes or infinite, but nothing in between. I would really like a more reasonable 2-hour timeout, or better yet, allow the user to set the delay for timeout.

Re: Please allow user to set the screen timeout

Hi @Keysaw,

Welcome to the Roku Community. 

I'd be delighted to take a closer look to see how we can help. Does the screen go to screensaver when it passes 20 mins or more? If so, you can define the amount of time your Roku device waits before starting the screensaver using the following instructions.

  1. Press Home on your Roku remote
  2. Scroll and select Settings
  3. Select Theme to open the Theme menu
  4. Select Screensaver wait time
  5. Choose the amount of time to wait, or choose to disable the screensaver
  6. Press OK on your Roku remote to save

Hope this helps. Keep us posted if this resolves your issue.
