Mac mini / Front Row suggestions

We have been using our Mac mini as a media center for a while, and even though I love it, there are some things that I would like to see added/changed.

  1. To be able to change the ratings of tracks.  On the iPod, which has a very similar interface, you can press select to get to a screen that will rate the song.

  2. To have a way to delete shows from a podcast, from within Front Row.  I often listen to an audio or video podcast on the train coming home from work, so I don't want to watch it again.  With out going into iTunes to delete that track, the only way for it to be removed the next time iTunes updates podcasts is to play the whole track.  (You can fast forward through it though)

  3. Just like iTunes downloads podcasts, I would love it if iTunes/Front Row would download all of the trailers into a local cache.  Our kids love watching trailers, and it is pretty frustrating when network bandwidth is not keeping up with the bitrate of the the high resolution trailers.
