Set Roku Channel to Autoplay?

Is there any way to set a Roku channel to start playing automatically after a set amount of time?

Assuming the channel is already launched on the device, you would set a timer so that if no activity happens in a given time period, the channel initiates video playback. Any time there is activity from the user, you would reset the timer to 0.

No, I am looking to auto-launch a channel from the home screen after a set amount of time waiting...

No, however... you could have a screensaver that calls the ECP to launch a channel, I suppose...
