Roku cutting off by itself

I can be watching one channel and after about two hours, it cuts off and asks me if I am still watching.  If I don't answer it, it cuts itself off.  Is there a way to disable that feature?  Very annoying to say the least.

Re: Roku cutting off by itself

There's a "bandwidth saver" under Settings->Network that if enabled will stop streaming after 4 hours.  Some channels/apps have implemented their own "are you watching" prompts.  That's something different and there's no Roku setting that affects it.
