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.
