Disabling home screen on the new Telus Optik TV Android boxes

Friendly Neighbour



Wondering if there is an option to disable/bypass the home screen when you turn on the Android box. I just want it to go straight to the last TV channel that I watched full screen.

If you hold down the back button on the remote, it should dismiss the screen and return you to your last watched program. In terms of disabling/bypassing the screen entirely, our Optik dev team is working on it!

I’m also interested in having this feature disabled so I don’t have to use the back button. I like to just hit power and have the news come on.
Thanks for working on the solution for this.
