How to make Filter by Favorites Stick Upon App Restart

NimzovichNimzovich Posts: 7 ✭✭✭

Every time I start the app it reverts back to Filter by All Channels. Is there any way to make the filter selected stick upon restart? It’s a PITA to have to reset your filter every time the app is started (I know this is a first world problem, but it’s a problem nonetheless). The necessity of having to navigate by scrolling is the worst feature of using the app. At least with filtering by your Favorites you reduce the amount of scrolling. The app should restart with whatever filter was last used.

    Thank you. In checking on this the the Roku app does not have that option currently. You would have to navigate to the option to set the filter to favorites. There are multiple things you can set up like start up channel but the favorites sort is not currently one of those options.

    We will provide your feedback to our developers that this is something you would like to see happen.

    Here are three additional things your developers should consider to make navigating channels easier:

    1. A virtual channel entry pad where you can input channel numbers.
    2. Currently you can use the rewind button to go to the previous channel selected. I would let the rewind button move back one channel in your favorites list and the forward button move forward to the next channel in favorites.
    3. Allow the Roku's voice capability to be used to enter channel numbers.
