Hide watched/seen? Most recently played?

Two things that bug me about Apple TV, will jailbreaking give me these options?

1. I wish there was a menu for "recently played", where a list of the last 5 or 10 videos i watched that did not complete could be accessed quickly.. regardless of which device I use. I hate having to drill down though 4-5 menus to find the episode I started watching yesterday but never finished.

2. I wish there was a setting to hide shows or movies that have already been watched so they don't clutter up the list.

This isn't ideal but it is a work around...

Create a smart playlist in itunes,

Create the following rules:

1. "Last Played" ---> "In the last" ---> "X" ---> "days"
2. "Media kind" ---> "is" ---> "movie"


Again, not ideal and just an alternative what your looking for. You'll have to control using itunes to select the movies on ATV.
