    I could never get what these icons meant in iTunes. AppleTV seems to have a problem with this (or at least, I'm assuming this is this is the cause).

    If I start a few TV shows, each 20 mins long, and I start to play the first one! Apple tv sometimes "groups these together into "one long title" so instead of taking only 20mins, it would take 1 hour, as ATV would automatically play the next one in turn.

    this only happens, so far at least, with TV shows, and only sometimes, again,.

    can someone elighten me on what the point of the "Mark as Watched" , & "Mark as Un-watched" means? And how these relate to ATV?

    All in all, it would be good to just disable them, as I prefer to choose myself.

    Basically it just puts an blue icon next to the movie to help you remember if you have watched it or not yet. Also, there is an option at the top to sort by Movie, Genre, and unwatched. ;-)
