Forces ATV to stay awake/screensaver

Post by RewNex » 04 Mar 2018, 06:38

Hi all new here.

When playback is ending the screensaver should kick in (which it does) but then after depending on atv settings it should go to sleep which it does not, so when falling to sleep watching a movie waking up in the morning everything is still on tv, receiver and atv, MrMC is the only app that does this that I know of and will highly hope it can be fixed,
thanks for an otherwise awesome playback experience.

I assume you mean the tvOS screensaver, yes ? When the tvOS screensaver is running, we are pushed into the background and no longer have any influence.

Yes your right its the tvOS screensaver, somehow it goes on for hours if MrMC was the used app before kicking in, I have thought of if it could be "keep audio device alive" which I had set to always and are now testing it with 5min instead.

It's my experience as well that if MrMC is still running the ATV won't go to sleep. Even though the tvOS screensaver activates.

Just tested with current 3.5.1 TestFlight.

ScreenSaver set to kick in in 5 min.
System Sleep set to 15 min.

Worked as expected. ScreenSaver kicked in 1st, then it went to sleep.

So the "keep audio device alive" setting had nothing to do with forcing Appletv4k to stay awake, I'm still on 3.5 so can't wait till trying 3.5.1 that you say dosen't have this issue.

Are you using the aerial screensaver, or another one?
