Viewing a recording starts over after FireStick sleeps

When I pause the viewing of a recording that is in progress long enough for the FireStick 4K to “sleep” (screensaver), it restarts at the beginning of the recording. I notice this when recording a long live sports event, not sure it it’s related to the long recording as this is the only recordings I typically view while the recording is still in progress. Quite frustrating. If I back out of the viewing mode and re-enter it will restart at the proper point, just have to remember to do this or else…

How long is this pause? Can you turn off the sleep function on the Fire TV Stick and see if the problem goes away?

Good suggestion, thanks. I’ve disabled the screen saver (was 5 minutes) and will see if this resolves it.
