I'll second that. I really don't like seeing all the seasons in the main list.My two wishes are:
in 'my' tv shows, the show title is in the list, then you see seasons. I hate seeing all the seasons of every show.
in 'my' movies, I'd like the option to view by grid (artwork) like apple does when you are looking for a movie to buy. All mine are one big list.
I'm not holding my breath.
This is the first step. Making all the selections on the main menu look like apps, it will be easy to add apps in the future. My bet is that an incarnation of iOS 6 will run on the Apple TV and allow apps.Still think the ATV1 interface is better, because my own media is intergrated right into the main menus. The new ATV3 interface looks too much like an iPhone/iPod and not like a home theater device.
This is the point...The jury is still out. Initially, I don't care much for the new look. It's like someone at Apple decided it should really look more iOS like just for the sake of it, even if it meant a bunch of things you never use being right in your face all the time instead of buried in a menu. Could be better.
I'm with you. I really like that last UI in TV1 http://nexus404.com/Blog/wp-content/uploads2/2011/12/apple-tv-user-interface-1.jpg.Still think the ATV1 interface is better, because my own media is intergrated right into the main menus.
Agreed.If I could remove the Apps I don't want, which is about 80% of them, I'd love it.
"What he said"--I'm annoyed they still haven't changed the submenus, especially for "Computers". I want my media to have the nicer views, eg swiping between seasons like you see in Purchased TV shows (and for FS please collapse seasons into one show listing).
--I don't like that the shelf disappears when you scroll down the app icons
--I was hoping they would restore a main menu style more like ATV1, with Movies, TV shows, Music, Pictures, then Apps/Internet. It was a step back to bury music/pics into Computers, and when Itunes Match launched and Music became a main menu item again I thought the next step would be to restore "Pictures" and give Photostream more prominence.
Having said that, it may have slightly higher WAF--my gf didn't realize she could scroll down internet to find more stuff . i still think "Computers" is unnecessary. The respective Movie/TV Show section can have "My Media" links that THEN take you to the Home shares to pick but oh well. But you get the feeling this is still a placeholder GUI until there are apps/games on this thing. There's more to come to this box I'm sure.
