[Apple TV] Enable screen saver

It would be nice if Spotify for Apple TV allowed the tvOS screen saver to work, like Apple Music and radio streaming apps do. It mitigates burn-in for OLED tvs and probably lowers energy consumption for the tv.

in addition to the problem of not activating the screen saver, the app always disconnects the audio output from the HomePod.
every time I need to reconnect .

Definitely.

Not only critical for older, high end plasma TVs but also critical for new OLED TVs.  Look at RTINGS.com if you don't understand this.  For those of us who want higher quality TV displays, we shouldn't have to be afraid of burn in because of our choice of music app.  (no flames please, I know some higher quality, expensive LED LCD TVs are also good displays.)

To an earlier poster in the old thread that said this was an HDCP issue, no, because I can turn off my TV and the TV will be blank.  There will be a temporary pause as the HDMI resyncs, but then the music from Roku Spotify comes back on.  If this doesn't work for you it is a setting in your TV and/or your receiver.  But, this annoying because:  you have to choose do it, you don't know what song is playing without using your phone, and the resync delay.  Better would be a rotating screen saver like Pandora does (but better, don't have any fixed location white hot spots for volume, title, etc.).  This is better than TV off - more interesting, and you can tell what is playing.
