    Anyone noticed (after the recent appletv update) that when you're watching a movie and you push 'up' that it shows the timeline of the movie. Finally!!! Now you don't have to pause it then play it to see how far you're into it. Anyone else notice this? Sorry if this has been said, ive been in Nepal for the last 3 weeks with no Internet.

    That's a nice little addition. I wish it was in 2.0. I'm afraid to upgrade now since it might slow HD movie rental downloads in terms of time to be able to view.

    I wish Apple would implement the suggestion to have a Visualizer mode for while music is playing. Slideshows are nice, but some of the better visualizers would look awesome on a 93" screen in the dark, especially with music by Pink Floyd and the like.

    All I want is 4:3 TV support (they do it with iPods for crying out loud) and the ability to rate the tunes while playing on :apple:TV (also something we can do with iPods).

    "UP" also works when looking at a rental in the ITMS.

    It displays the complete text.
