I swear that when I tapped the touch surface of the remote in gen 4 and 5 remotes that the progress (scrub) bar would show current time-of-day/estimated time of completion of rented or purchased videos. Now only getting elapsed time. Tapping twice does nothing. How do I get this back?

Yes this exists. I think you touch or click (can't remeber which) the touchpad twice when playing your video.

Agreed and this used to work. Doesn’t anymore. At least not for me.

Still works for me.
  • Touching twice on the touchpad displays current time + time when the show will be finished
  • Touching twice very fast zooms to fit the screen and vice versa

My bad, indeed this does work with the ATV remote. I was trying to do this from the remote app - this does not work.
