Firestick Screensaver

    I have recently moved to the Middle East and have a new TV (Samsung Smart TV) and my first Firestick (4k model bought 6 weeks ago). It has not been taken out of the Amazon app environment so I am only using the apps freely available on the Amazon store. I am using ExpressVPN.

    The setup is great for getting me live and catchup TV from home as well as the usual Netflix/YouTube etc.

    I discovered the screen saver facility and loaded a pile of photos to my Amazon account so I can see family and friends from home (I am batchelor status here). I love it.

    The problem is that the screensaver only works for a certain short period of time before the screen blacks out. If I am listening to a radio app on the Firestick the radio continues after the screen blacks.

    I've checked the TV and Firestick settings and cannot find a setting which creates a timeout.

    I would like the the screensaver to continue for longer. If I use the Amazon photos app in slideshow mode I can't listen to the radio app at the same time.

    Any idea why the screen is blacking out and what settings need changing?
