screen saver during playpack?

spamsucksspamsucks Posts: 3Members ✭✭

The screen saver on my apple tv comes up while I am watching a video from plex. I can switch to other apps in the apple tv, and it doesn't happen. I am up to date with Plex and on the Apple tv. The show will pause, and the screen saver comes on, and will resume when I do something with the remote (IE hit a button) so its not still playing in the background.

    I honestly didnt see that when I searched for the issue. I am sorry to double the post.

    This is happening to me, as well. Just noticed it for the first time today. Had you previously used Plex without this issue?

    Edit: Whoops. My content blocker was hiding all the responses to the original post. Sorry about that.
