    You can set the app to start at a specific channel, but I don’t think you can set it to last channel viewed. The thing is it seems like every time there is an update Spectrum sneaks it back to their news channel.

    You have to go to the main screen where the guide is then go to the settings wheel in the lower left corner. Then go to preferences and turn on Startup Channel. Then you have to go to manage startup channel and pick the one you want. That will stick until the next update.

    Thank you so much, LGT!

    Clicked on the Setting sprocket as you suggested, Preferences / Startup Channel, which was set to ON. Toggled that to OFF, then had to back out to main screen, returned and toggled it back ON, and ithat presented the Manage Startup Channel option, clicked and set to my preferred.. Exited the app, restarted it, and that worked!

    Then had a thought - returned to Preferences / Startup Channel, and toggled it to OFF.. It now returns to last channel watched (although that is not an indicated option)

    Thanks again, “problem” solved!!
