Android TV: Screen saver and skip while paused

Post by cncb » Mon Oct 28, 2019 2:52 pm

I have requested these before but could not find the old threads. These are both for the Android TV app:

1) The screen saver is never activated while in the app when not performing any actions or when the video playback is paused. I'm pretty sure that someone from SD said this would be enabled in the future but that was a while ago.

2) During playback, I prefer to skip around while paused. In the Windows app this works well, but on Android TV the "paused video image" never updates so you can't tell where you have skipped to until you start playing again. Likewise the progress bar is not updated until you start playing again.

Any comments on these issues? I failed to mention this is specifically the nVidia Shield TV.

Let me talk to the dev team. Not sure if this is something that's just part of the Android system or not.
