Clarifying things has never been my strong suitamet wrote: @timstephens24
could you clarify please, is it playing behind the screensaver?
how do you start it? is item selected in a list and you hit play on remote ? if you could explain how I can reproduce, we have more chance of getting it fixed ... I found no issues testing now
For selecting: I go to TV Shows, choose my Plex Library, then select the show, select the season, then select the episode. I have it set to prompt me what to do (Play, Show Information, More...), and I choose Play. Then I hit pause. Now I type up an email, do some things, etc. For this test I waited 5 minutes. Came back into the room and the screensaver was playing. Then I hit play on the Apple remote and the video starts playing, but the screensaver still plays in the foreground. Here's a video:

My settings for the screensaver:
Start After: 2 minutes
Show During Music and Podcasts: No
Also here's a log where I did it twice:
And another log:
Also I've tested it out in 3 of my 5 rooms with Apple TVs. If I play a video in my living room where the Apple TV is hooked up to the TV, and from there a SPDIF connection to a soundbar, it works the way it should. If I play the video in my office or basement, where the Apple TV is hooked up to a receiver and then to the TV, this problem happens.
Edit to add: The logs are from an Apple TV with 10.1 beta on it, but the other Apple TVs that this was occurring on isn't running the beta.
