@Ello2022The feature I'm referring to is when a small thing pops up on the lower left corner that warns that in 30 seconds Hulu will stop, and a clock like thing starts winding down towards zero. If you go right before it times out, it says "Don't ask for this channel again"
The solution for me is to always go to Home before I leave. And the big trick is to get the kids to do it too.
But like I mentioned it's strange that there isn't an easy way to trigger that option off and on.
