    When pulling up a TV series in my instant queue, the AppleTV shows every episode listed in exactly the same style, in other words, no difference between watched and unwatched episodes. All my other devices indicate watched episodes, usually by dimming the episode number. Am I missing a setting somewhere?

    Not missing anything on your end. That's just the way iOS on ATV shows them. Maybe they'll fix that in a future release.

    maybe give the episodes you've watched a star rating, then you would at least be able to see if you have watched it or not.

    I think you can only rate the show and not individual episodes. That from memory as I am not near my ATV2 now to check.

    If you watch the episodes in order, the next unwatched episode will cue up automatically the next time you go to watch that series.

    Thanks. That's what I figured. Normally, it does pop to the next episode, but sometimes it doesn't seem to if I watch a few episodes on another computer/TV. Guess I'll just have to pay attention until the AppleTV is updated at some point.

    Watching things between the aTV2 and my iPod Touch, I suppose it didn't note that I had watched an episode a couple times, but it has been rare.
