Screensaver coming on when screen casting

It used to be that when I used the YouTube Music mobile app and screencast to my Roku, it would show the YouTube song being played and not turn on the screensaver. I haven't used this in two months or so. Today I was using it and now the screensaver comes on after the set time and *kills* the YouTube music casting. Why, AND please fix this. It is highly annoying.

Re: Screensaver coming on when screen casting

Hello,

I am having what sounds to be the same issue. 

When using Youtube Music app on android phone (Android version 11), it plays without interruption through phone or when casting to a Google Chromecast.  However, when I cast Streaming Stick+ (no brand new, no settings changed other than network setup), it will play for several minutes, then Roku screen saver comes on, music stops, and Youtube Music app hangs, and needs to be restarted (and reconnect cast, etc...).  Very annoying.  Casting other apps (e.g. Youtube app, or screen casting) does not experience this issue.  Casting the same app to other device (Chromecast) doesn't have this issue. 

When it happened, I tried hitting home 5x then back 5x and have the following info:

Issue ID: 64-225-954, model: 3810X, serial: YH00D4656764, software version: 10.0.0 build 4195-50, timestamp 2021-06-06T21:54:31Z

Thanks for any insights you can provide on this.
