Audio feedback in main activity screen + remove touchpad as default


I’m sure I’m missing something, but is there a way to incorporate the audio mode such as DTS, DD (not just the volume) in the main screen of the activity remote like on the legacy devices?

Also, is there a way to remove the touchpad as the main default for controlling the device? For example, when i select “play apple tv”, the default remote that opens is a touch pad so i have to manually tap on the below arrow to get to the “d-pad” screen.

Thanks for the help,
