On the home screen (and in some other places) we have lists like "Latest Movies" and "Because you watched ______." I would find it useful if there was an additional list called something like "Extras to Watch." After I watch a movie I like to watch the extras over the next several days, but depending on what all is happening in life I might forget by the time I come back to Emby Theater, and the movie is no longer prominent (if, for example, it had originally been in Latest Movies) and I forget all about the extras. Having a list/View for movies that I have watched but for which I have not yet watched the Extras would be useful so as to keep those movies in front of me so that I might actually finish watching the Extras.

I am returning to Emby WMC after nearly 2 years using exclusively Roku TV. (The Roku app works very well, wife likes it, and even my 4-year old can quickly pick a show to watch.) I have setup my home theater in the basement, using a Windows 7 PC. I tried Emby Theater, and it works perfectly, but unfortunately it looks exactly like the Roku app with no customization of views and no themes (yet). So I am trying WMC again, because I love customizing the views in each category (Detail, Coverflow, Thumb, Poster, etc). Thanks to the forum I have solved a few early issues by: * Switching to the current Beta version * Smoothing out some network sharing issues and adding UNC Paths on the server * Installing LAV codecs My current major obstacle is viewing my extras from each movie. I have special features (documentaries, deleted scenes, etc) in a folder labeled "Extras" for each movie. They can be accessed in Roku and Emby Theater. I think when using Chocolate, there is a button to view the Extras. So, is access to these Extras solely dependent on the theme being used? I think this is why I originally moved away from the Diamond Theme. Do any of the Throg Themes have this option? View customization and access to my Extras would be a winning combo for me!
There does not seem to be a way to use sync with special features. It would be a nice addition to be able to sync special features either with a movie or stand-alone in the event that you just want to catch up on a few special features that you haven't had a chance to watch recently.
