    The ATV could really use some hotkeys for oft used actions.

    For example, I'm a little hard of hearing, I sometimes want subtitles, but when my friend is over she doesn't like them.

    So, I'm watching a show in Netflix, have to escape all the way to the main screen, click on settings, go to audio then turn on subtitles. Then I have to head back to the main screen, enter Netflix, find the show I was watching and resume it. Thirty-one clicks.

    If there was a way to bring up a hotkey menu, it would be so easy.

    hold the centre button down, bringing up a options menu. you can then turn on/off subtitles, change the audio language, or the audio output
