disable timeout when paused

Roku returns to the home screen after a set amount of time of inactivity (paused screen) in an app. I would like for this not to happen. How do I disable feature?

Please note that I am aware about the bandwidth saver option. This is a different issue - this is about when I pause the Roku for a while it will automatically take me back to the home screen whereas I would like it to keep me in the app.

Re: disable timeout when paused

This may be something programmed onto some individual channel apps.  Does it happen on all channels or just some specific ones?

Re: disable timeout when paused

Like @makaiguy says, it's likely programmed into the specific channel. No, there's no Roku-wide ability to disable it. 

Roku Stick (3600), Ultra (4640), Ultra (4670), Premiere (3920), Insignia 720p Roku TV, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Nvidia Shield, Windows 10 Pro x64 running Serviio and Plex on a wired Gigabit network.
