    yeah they needed to update that interface. Whenever my daughter would watch something during the day and I wanted to watch something at night, I'd have to search for it again. 'Recently watched' only showed the single most recently watched show. Going into the history takes longer than just searching.

    Progress ... this is cool.

    Timonius, I think with the profile system it will be easier to place parental controls or at least monitor what each profile has been watching. If they don't rollout something like this eventually and soon... then why bother.
