I use the "Favorites" feature on the Apple TV quite a bit. I find a currently airing TV series that I want to watch, add it to my favorites, and then whenever a new episode comes out a [red number in upper right corner of thumbnail] notification will display in the Favorites list to alert me. Unfortunately, this feature doesn't work very well. Past Implementation: - Whenever you viewed the Favorites list, the Apple TV would first check for any new episodes. Because of this check, the loading of the favorites list took forever, but when it did load, notifications of new episodes were present. Current Implementation: - Viewing the Favorites list no longer triggers the Apple TV to check for new episodes; instead the list appears immediately but without notifications for new episodes. Eventually the Apple TV will (at some arbitrary time) check for new episodes and display the notifications; but for me, this never happens. My Favorites list remains without notifications until I manually go into each show to check for new episodes. Since I haven't seen any other threads on this issue, am I the only one using the Favorites feature? Or does anyone know a way to force the Apple TV to check for new episodes (for all favorites at once)?
