Roku Express times out after inactivity.

My Roku Express times out after inactivity.  I've looked in Settings to try to extend the inactivity time constraint, but with no success.  I have a unique reason for this, I live with an elderly parent who cannot operate the system, and I need to be able to leave his preferred subscription channel on for a longer time when I'm not available to work the system for him.  Can anyone help?  Is there a way to extend that inactive time before it goes back to the home screen?

Re: Roku Express times out after inactivity.


Thanks for the inquiry.

You may be experiencing the Bandwidth saver feature on your device.

From the Home page, select Settings > Network > Bandwidth Saver > Off to see if that resolves your issue.
