This is a new issue I've begun experiencing just in the past few weeks: If I pause any program using any app (YouTubeTV, Netflix, Amazon, etc.) and don't press play within about 3 or 4 minutes, Roku seems to reset. The reset isn't evident on the screen until I press play. Then I have to start back from the Roku home screen. This happens whether I'm watching YouTube TV live or a recorded program. When it happens on a recorded problem, it's a nuisance, but not nearly as frustrating as if I'm watching live programming and the program ends before I can return to it because at that point the end of the show is lost. Is there a setting or something else I can try to fix this? I understand why it might happen after 30 or 60 minutes, but it happens in literally less than 5 minutes.
Re: Reset after paused for more than a few minutes
I am also having this problem. I thought it was a bad screen saver, so I switched to Roku’s own. Still have issues. Also, just started downloading channels I didn’t want when I hit play from The screen saver. I’m assuming it’s because it’s an advert from the home screen. It’s getting frustrating.
