Recent channels viewed list

Hello! Last night while watching tv, I sat on my silver uverse remote. When I looked up, on the right side of the screen, a menu saying "recent channels" was listed. I accidently pressed exit anactor the life of me can't figure out how to get it back on the screen. I have tried pressing every button and different combinations of buttons. Does ANYONE have ANY advice on this? I would be extregreat grateful!! thanks guys!

The same thing happened to me Monday evening on a non-DVR STB with the black remote (using the"Last" button). I cannot replicate it and the STB has not been rebooted.

Try going to the intreactive menu and see if you can see it there.

It was not via an Interactive App, the "Last" button brought it up. Unfortunately I didn't think to take a photo.

Julie - I have not seen anything relating to Recent Channels, visited.  I am studying up on Comcast's new X1 Platform and they are including a list of the last 9 viewed channels - so maybe the OP witnessed AT&T testing an upcoming new feature.  I have never seen a recent list show up, so it could be a test on unknowing subscribers.

Not sure if this has any bearing on what is being discussed but the only time I have seen a 'recent channels visited' type of service is while watching something On Demand and clicking the Last button.  This results in showing a list on the right of the last 5 or 6 channels viewed (including a PIP) allowing you to scroll up and down to select.

Interesting.  I do not watch OD much, so I may have to try it.   Anyone who wants to test this, please do.  Press the Last button at various times and activities, and see if it jumps to the Last channel or gives you a list.

Re: Recent channels viewed list

I just tried it and it shows a list of recent On Demand and recent Channels. A On Demand program has to be playing for it to work.

I concur 100%.  SO, AT&T is either 1) testing this feature out by having the feature only in the VOD section, 2) has tried to implement this everywhere on U-Verse but it's not working anywhere but VOD or 3) they are only going to use it in VOD, which, IMO defeats its purpose.  Xfinity's new X1 platform shows the last 9 viewed channels or titles, so I'm guessing that AT&T is trying to keep up with the Jones's or Comcast's, as it were.

Re: Recent channels viewed list

I know this thread is fairly old, but I've figured out how to replicate this while watching live TV. Press the back button, then last and the list will show up.

Nope.  Didn't work for me.

Looks like the latest STB version 2.4.29140.12 eliminated this capability.

 

If anyone who hasn't been updated to 2.4.29140.12 could check this out and reply, it would be great.

I'm running 2.2.28184.50 and found that it only works when you are watching On Demad and not regular programming...which I find weird.

Re: Recent channels viewed list

Select "Menu", scroll down to "options", in system settings there is an option for "recently watched", select and enable. When watching TV you can press "last" it will show your recently viewed channels.
