    Question AppleTV streaming VS syncing

    Does the new AppleTV update Play Count and Last Played on the system it is streaming from?

    I have the v1 AppleTV and it does update this for both synced and streamed content. My fear is that the new version does not. I use a lot of smart playlists that use Play Count and Last Played fields for filtering and it would be a huge bummer if these no longer get updated.

    It does but it's buggy in my experience. You can force it manually, however, by pressing and holding down MENU to get the popup, then choosing Mark as Watched.
