DVR exits to same channel

Ever since the last software update in Sept I am seeing an issue where after a program on the DVR/media server finishes playing and it exits to live TV, it always exits to channel 594 CBS Sports Network HD. No matter what channel I am on, it will exit to 594. Before the update, it would exit to whatever channel I was already on when I started playing the recording. The 2nd recent update from a week or so ago did not fix this and it's still exiting to channel 594. 

I assume this is a bug. Please fix this or help me determine what I can do to change this irritating behavior.

There used to be a setting for that in the menu, but it looks like its gone now. I wonder if its related to your favorites list somehow?

You're a genius! 

594 is the last channel in Favorites 1. I went into Settings, System, Favorite Channels, then Tune to Favorites, and saw it was set to Favorites 1. I changed it to All Channels and now when a recording ends it stays on the channel it was already on when I started watching the recording!

Thank you so much!!
