Change content?
Scan for new content? (very "maybe" on that one. not sure)

The last two are only available in files view and probably are the most used context menu items for source items. That's why I don't think that a "Manage..." sub-menu makes sense there. I can look into if it's possible to add "Refresh" (from the video info dialog).

popcornmix: What was the reason you had to mark a whole heap of episodes as watched? I'm genuinely intrigued as to the usage pattern, as I never use mark as watched (or unwatched) at all as it's automatically done once I've watched something.

Given Mark as Watched appears to be the most used Manage... option, perhaps it should be first? This would get rid of those that complain of it being in the main context as well as the manage menu.

I propose to move all the "go to X" entries in the PVR EPG context menu to a "go to..." submenu (like the "manage...") to clean that thing a bit up. Those are probably rarely used. Talked about it with xhaggi already and he's also fine with it. What's the RMs view on this?

I think there have been 3 different occasions I've needed to "mark as watched" large groups:

Initially when I moved from using a different media player to xbmc, and was partway through a number of series.
After rescanning my library when I had a few series that weren't detecting new episodes. I backed up and restored the watched status with Milhouse's texture cache utility, but about 10% of series didn't restore the watched state correctly (possibly due to minor changes in series name).
When I've replaced a series with a higher quality version (e.g. sickbeard's archive version). The watched settings get lost here.

Marked as watched for large groups of videos will be useful until we have a means of maintaining a persistent library. Might be something to think about as development on multi-client really gets rolling.
