Battery Change

I have my KR set so TV is on 1/800th for birds. I have AV set to F13 for macro
Every time I change the battery I get TV 1/125th. I get AV F8
I guess these are the defaults and can these be changed?
Or can they be saved in the memory and I'm just not seeing it?

I believe there's a setting that controls what is remembered after you turn off the camera, and what isn't. Be sure to check the shutter speed and aperture boxes on that menu page (if they're there, not 100% sure on that), and then you'll be all set!

The memory options on the Kr don't include TV or AV mode settings

I thought that was true it couldn't be saved because I couldn't find it.
