Spectrum Smart TV and Cable Box Turn on Configuration
New to the Smart TV technology, even though I have been around cable TV since 1985. Let's say that you aren't watching CATV, but you are watching an APP like Netflix or something. Now, I don't mean Netflix that is available in some markets on the World Boxes, I mean you are in the Smart TV Hub watching Netflix or the app of your choosing.
When you turn off the TV and than turn it back on, are you put back into "Cable Mode" where you will see the Spectrum Cable Guide when your TV and box are turned back on? (Assume that you have the System or All Power button on your remote programmed to control the cable box and remote at the same time.?) Or, when the TV and box are turned back on, will the user still be in the App Hub mode, watching whatever it was when the TV was last turned off?
I ask this because we have an elderly person in the family, and I need to know if I am watching an App in the Smart Hub on the TV, do I have to go back to the Cable TV Spectrum icon to be in "Cable Mode" before turning the TV off? Or when All Power is pressed to control the TV/Cable box at the same time, are users automatically in cable mode when the box and TV are turned on with the "System" button?
