Currently when you have “Media” selected, the AppleTV topshelf shows your “Recently Played” videos and when selected, will auto-play the video.
I think it would great if there was two levels of options for how the topshelf operates with Media Player.
First would be what it actually shows in the topshelf. Instead of just a History, it would great if you could have an option to show random shows from your metadata cached library. Or an option to consolidate a full show into one poster, instead of a series of 10+ same episode posters when you watch a TV show back to back.
Second preference would be to have a setting for what happens when you click on the poster. Maybe something like …
Resume movie / resume episode / start next episode
Show movie info / show tv show info
Ofcourse, with the 5.0 firmware, the Media icon is on the second line where the topshelf is not visible when selected. So ideally, an option to enable/disable the visibility of icons and to reorder them would be great. For now, I’ll settle with adding “.bak” to the appliance files to bump the Media icon to the top.
