What are your current screensaver settings? The screensaver, the time, all related settings.

And, provide the information about your device, including model number, and any version number for any third-party screen saver, as listed in the link Shawn offered.

Re: roku no longer going to screensaver after the update

I have the same problem, worked perfectly until the recent update.

This has been a timely reminder for me. I was about to weaken and buy a 3810 stick so that I could view the BBC's UHD trial, but then this happens and strengthens my resolve to wait for an alternative piece of hardware that will do the job.

Re: roku no longer going to screensaver after the update

Temp solution until Roku fixes it, someone was putting tape over the led, and -> An easy way to solve this is go to settings -> screensaver -> choose a screensaver, or leave it on the one it's on -> click on preview
Shortly after pressing preview the screensaver comes on and the led goes off. The led on mine has now been off for over an hour after hitting preview and the screensaver is on, I chose the clock, didn't know it had that. When you're ready to use your Roku again press the home button twice - or you can back out with the left arrow <- [Side note, the led will also come back on if you change input and back to Roku input, you'll have to click on preview in screensaver again, to turn it off] Hope that helps., Wink
