Setting up ads for Roku screensaver

Can I setup ads for Roku Screensaver custom app? Is there any way? I did a simple app where in main.brs I called 'RunScreenSaver' function also implemented code for RAF. Everything is fine,
1. ads are playing
2. Screensaver shown fine

but when I select it as a screensaver from settings, it loads fine but ads got stuck.

Re: Setting up ads for Roku screensaver

I can't find it now, but I know at one time ads weren't allowed in screensavers.  However, there's no way to play a video in a screensaver.

How did you get actual ads to show?  All of our RAF attempts result only in Roku product ads.
