Issue with "watched" toggle in ET

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

I just had an interesting experience, which might be user error or a bug. I'll let you all decide for me.

 

So, a while ago I added the first five episodes of The Knick, Season 2, to my library. It fetched metadata and all was well. I watched the first episode, then moved on to other things. Today I wanted to watch episode # 2 and noticed that ALL the episodes were marked watched. How strange. I figured I'd accidentally toggled the season watched at some point along the way, no big deal.

 

But when I went in to toggle each episode in turn to "unwatched" I noticed odd behavior which is what I'm reporting here. This seems reproducible. I'm using the full ET desktop program. I did this on my Win 7 x64 desktop but I see the same thing on my Win 10 HTPC.

 

Let's start with an episode as shown in the list of Season 2 (so, this is a screengrab from a screen showing the 5 episodes I have for this season in my library). It clearly shows a green checkmark showing "watched."

I go into the episode details by clicking on what was shown above.  In here, the toggle seems to show unwatched, or perhaps I misunderstand ... it has a weird red check...:

So I click once on the watched checkmark, which seemed to show unwatched. Now it toggles to look "watched" but figuring it was a toggle incorrectly visualized, I left it at that. It now looks like this:

I exit the episode view; the green checkmark remains (showing watched) next to the episode picture:

If I exit the season, and re-enter, now it shows correctly unwatched:

And if I go back into the episode the checkmark looks white instead of weird redish

Thanks for any help getting me to understand what's going on and fixing it as needed.

 

Thanks

The button is expanded and zoomed when focused, which I guess makes it look like the poster icon so I could see the confusion there.

Thanks Luke. So, was the initial Gray circle with reddish checkbox the intial view what it was supposed to look like?

Thanks for the clarification.

 

As a change request, would you consider changing the watched/not watched icons so they are clearer?

 

Thanks again. ET has really come a long way! :D

I just noticed the watched icon now looks very intuitive! Not sure when it happened but it looks great now. Thank you for acting on the concern I put forth.

 

Great job!
