100% agreed. Pathetic.tibber said:This is the most trivial thing they could do--remember a few settings between reboots.
The boxes remember your zipcode in the access card, they remember your guide DMA zipcode(s) (in another place!), they remember the last channel tuned, even if the box has been unplugged for weeks!, they remember the TV type, format you prefer (stretch, crop, box, etc.), but they can't remember a few bits of interactive information? Sigh.
Blame not the programmers, this is a product specification issue, IMHO.
