I  normally use YoutubeTV for everyday viewing. This TV has a setting that, supposedly, powers up on the last app that was in use when the TV was turned off. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to make it work. I've tried it on both Youtube TV and Hulu to see if it worked on one but not the other but it doesn't return to either of them. So far I checked the firmware update but the TV says I have the latest version. I see a number of posts in a google search but no solutions. I purchased the TV about two weeks ago at BestBuiy. Can anyone point me to a solution?

It's not working for me either and driving me crazy.  I have autorun last app and autorun smarthub both turned on and it doesn't matter.  Samsung needs to fix this.

Exact same issue. This is NOT SOLVED. 

 

At first I thought I was doing something wrong. But after reading this thread, I tried it with Amazon Prime and it worked. But, it DID NOT WORK with other apps like Plex.

Why does that matter? I have the same issue with the 65" Frame TV.

I have the same problem.  I have contacted customer service several times via phone and chat and unfortunately it's like Groundhog Day, their customer service is horrible.  Good luck!

I'm having the same issue on my QN75Q60RAFXZA

ITS DRIVING ME BONKERS

I reset the TV and redid EVERYTHING and it still goes to the dumb live TV option.... Why on Earth did I spend d#$@ near 3k on a TV that can't even start where you left off.... 

(Yes I have the autorun settings enabled) 

The other super annoying part of this is that when you restart the tv it automatically adds the "live TV" app to the smart hub which bumps everything I want to use back one slot. 

 

Samsung, kindly, fix this. Please. Please please please.

I received the same answer, specifically the app I want to autorun does not support this feature.  I have run IT orgtanization for over 40 years and am an expert programmer.  I can't think of what the app could do to enable this feature.  The tv knows what app was in control when it was shut off.  It seems simple that the tv operating system could look in storage and see what was previously executing and execute it in the new session.

 

I suspect that Samsung has a bug they haven't fixed.  As we said in the early days of computing, "if you have a bug you can't or won't fix, call it a feature"

Exactly. Was in IT 25 years, "it's a feature".
