I know this thread discussion is mostly about Plex server, but I have an issue with Plex player app on Android TV (Shield Pro).
When playing video from PC Plex server using Plex app on the Shield (Gb LAN wired), if I pause and walk away for a time, the screen first goes into ChromeCast-style screen saver mode, then eventually blanks completely if left alone long enough. After hitting a remote button in either screen-saving mode, screen comes back in file listing. Hit play on current file, and almost always starts from beginning. This sometimes happens even when hitting stop or back button and then attempting to resume at later time.
When using Kodi media player and same screen timeout(s) happen, kicks back to file listing but resumes properly.
FWIW, Plex app on Roku never had this issue, and always just stayed paused, no matter how long we were away.
Anyone else have this problem? Comments / suggestions?
