I have a photo screensaver that comes up after 5min of inactivity. The screensaver comes up fine when Emby is left on a non-playback screen (such as the home screen or item details screen).
However, if a TV show is paused, the screensaver NEVER comes on. (If you have the auto-logoff feature enabled then that will eventually allow the screensaver to appear, but setting that to the lowest option of 30min would be pretty annoying)
This is necessary because 1) I like seeing my screensaver and I often leave playback paused 2) in order for my TV to auto power-off after an hour it needs Emby to report that it's idle
I see two possible solutions:
1) After X minutes (maybe default to 10 but provide a setting), Emby will report that it's idle so that the screensaver can appear. Playback will not end so that closing the screensaver allows easy resuming.
2) Exit playback automatically after X minutes. If the screensaver is set to 5min then it would appear after X + 5 minutes automatically. (This is less ideal than #1 for several reasons, but if it's significantly easier then it's probably good enough)
