change default uverse startup channel (July 2013)

I see that Uverse has quietly done a software upgrade recently and now, whenever I power up the set top box, it defaults to On Demand instead of the last channel I was watching (as before).  How do I reset the default startup page to last channel instead of On Demand?

I'd do a hard reboot by unplug/plug in power after 30 seconds. This will fix many DVR problems, let us know if it worked, good luck. Smiley Wink

I do not notice this behavior.  Mine starts up at the channel that I was on when I turned it off.

That is odd behavior and has nothing to do with the latest software upgrade. 

 

As stated, it should resume where ever you left it, whether it's a channel or the DVR/On Demand screen. 

 

Reboot.

Hm... I have seen the guide start back at 1 lately, even though the channel being shown is the one I was last watching.
