Apparently Autoplay has been around for a while, but I only became aware of it after a recent upgrade.
It annoys me.
Now it is coming up at the end of every show.
How can I turn it off permanently?

By "recent upgrade" I meant to say software update.

There is not an option to disable this feature. Do you have any feedback around why you find this feature annoying?

It's not a bug it was an added feature. IF you don't like it hit the stop button when you see the message counting down and it goes away.

I would prefer that if a person wanted to watch the next show, then THEY would have to take the action, rather than if I don't want to watch it, I am forced to take the action. I can confidently say that I will never want the receiver to start the next show for me. I called CS and registered my preference. Lots of features have an on-off switch of sorts - I am asking for one here.

I’ve never had an issue with this feature until yesterday. It kept popping up to play the next episode during each commercial break of the current episode I was watching.

It was a DVR recording of the first episode of the new season of The Challenge on MTV.

It was extremely annoying because a couple of times I didn’t catch it and it stopped my current episode and started the next one.

I dont understand why they can't add a toggle in settings to turn this on and off, like they do for PTAT.

There should be an option to turn this off. Not everyone is constantly staring at the TV...distractions can cause some to miss the message. I am requesting that this be an option that can be turned off for those who don't want it.
