Spectrum TV Version 8 Build 1 - Can't find default (startup) channel setting
All 4 of my Roku boxes received Version 8 Build 1 yesterday and when the app opens now it goes to some awful news channel. In previous versions you could set the startup channel or at least it would open the app to the last channel you were watching. I've looked for settings but I only see settings for captioning. Are there other app settings I'm missing? It seems like they stripped out some settings in order to promote certain channels.

Update - I found the main settings by hitting the left arrow at the top of the remote and selecting the gear icon at the lower left. From there I selected Preferences and Manage Startup Channel. Not sure why the Startup Channel defaulted to Channel 1 on this latest update. Hope this helps someone with the same issue.6
Thank you for the update and taking the time to share this helpful info.
