streaming playback times out after 1 hr, 4 hrs, etc. depending on source

FYI, I have a Roku 3. I have seen this problem lately, maybe for several months, not sure exactly. I watch a live stream, like from YouTube, International House of Prayer, or Home Shopping Network. After a certain time a screen message asks if I'm still there, expecting to see some button pushes on the remote. If no button is pushed the stream stops and goes to a screensaver. Has anyone else noticed this and is there a workaround?

Settings/Network/Bandwidth Saver>> on or off

Trying it, very optimistic. Thanks!

OK, it worked. Thank you - had two streams on two machines running all night.

Am I correct in thinking this bandwidth saving feature default = on has been like this for a month or two and that the programmers did something to cause it, or has it always been this way?
