New Last Watched/Viewed Feature

Using the "last watched" used to be one step. This morning Verizon changed it to a 2 step action. Hate it. How do I go back to the old, one step action.

I just found out that you can disable this and go back to the old version.
Go to Settings - System - TV - Last Watched Rail - Disable

Within the last few days, the previously watched bar changed. It no longer shows channels I have recently watched, it ONLY shows saved recordings in my DVR. This is useless! I want my recent CHANNELS,

I tried to disable the last watched feature. I hate the banners! However no matter how many times I try to press OK it never takes and I cannot get rid of the new feature. I am tired of having to upgrade equipment, deal with these changes. I want a different service!

Last watched function is enabled but empty when using. Never worked from day 1. Any thoughts?

This works for the tv with the main box, is there a fix for the tv’s with adapter boxes?

Every time someone posts to this, I get an email because I posted a reply here.  Perhaps it is just me, but the Solution has been posted multiple times, and this topic has been beaten to death.  You can use it OR not use it. Problem resolved.  It is time this was closed. In short, Enough already!

Adding my 2 cents.  I very much dislike the new last button.  Now, I never use it.  It lags too much.

Two thumbs up for this information.  I didn't mind so much having the last nine channels but not being able to rewind any of them was a deal breaker. Back to one I go!

The new "Last" feature on the remote does not work properly half the time and is annoying. I previous picking of the previous station you were watching was much better. Is there any way to go back to the old method?

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Whoever came up with that idea to have all your last watched channels can't want to change back quickly. I hated the new way they did it and was so grateful to find your solution.   (New and improved - seldom is !! )

Let me add my vote. This was a terrible "innovation".

I use the "last" feature to toggle quickly between two channels - usually competing sports events. With the current process, there is too long a gap, rendering it practically useless. I don't think a history of "last"s is something anyone needs.
