Youtube widget on stb abruptly shuts off

My wife and I are thrilled that we can now watch Youtube by streaming to our set-top box, but we have noticed an issue. It seems that after an hour or so, the unit exits the Youtube widget and returns to live TV. This has happened at least twice already, most recently while watching a livestream. Is there any way to stop this happening?

Although I don’t use Fios tv, I believe it is YouTube that does this shut down. I have noticed it happens on Hulu and amazon prime and my DirectTVNOW even if I am on and actively watching. So I think it’s the YouTube doing it. Check online to see what YouTube support says.
