ATV 2nd Gen - Watched/Unwatched TV Show Status
I noticed on my new ATV 2nd Gen that if you watch a TV Show (from your home library, not "rented" ones), it will incorrectly show it as unwatched (full circle next to title) when you finish it.
As with the original ATV, you would have:
Full Dot: Unwatched
Half Dot: Partially Watched
No Dot: Watched
The new ATV2 shows unwatched and partially watched status correctly, but will revert back to unwatched status (Full Dot) when you finish the episode.
If you watch the same show on your computer in iTunes, it will work correctly and update ATV correctly.
Status from iTunes to ATV works fine, but from ATV to iTunes, it shows the incorrect status.
Anybody else see this bug?

What if you're using the actual remote?
I prefer to use the remote control that came with my ATV2; is there a way to mark the shows as watched with it?
Also, I have noticed that my ATV2 goes 'dormant' if I have my TV set to watch from another source (such as the satellite) and then it takes a very long time to come alive again. Is that a feature?

I've noticed this myself... make sure you submit a bug report at apple.com/feedback so they know the issue is impacting a large number of users.

My old AppleTV shows the Apple logo for a couple seconds after I use a different input on my receiver. I assume it's normal as my other devices also take a second to query for acceptable formats and such when I switch inputs.
