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

I agree, it's terrible! I want to go back to the old way.

There is a setting to go back to the previous implementation:

Settings |  System | Television | Last Watched rail | Enable/Disable

Last Channel Button

Hate hate hate the new last channel button. The point is to quickly go back to the last channel, like when you're watching 2 football games. Now I click it, wait a few seconds, then a list comes up of previous channels I was watching. I already know what i was watching, that's why I want to go back. Extra clicks every time. What a pain.

Did you read the solution right above your post?

Last button on record has changed.

Every since I got Verizon FiOS when I pressed the last button on the remote it would simply change the channel to the previous channel I was watching.

Today when I tried to press it a menu popped up with recent channels I've watched and I had to select the channel I wanted to switch to. This adds unnecessary steps of pressing multiple buttons to go to the last channel.

How do I make it so the last button simply switches to the previous channel and not bring up a recent channels menu?

Why take the button used most often other than Mute and mess with it?

It's like if you were to press the power button and a menu popping up on your screen asking you to select which device you want to turn on.
