I havent fully digested or tried evertyhing.  But there are
supposed to be two processes.  One is "filtering" which simply
ignors th epackets completely.

The other is a selective display.  Where you only display
certain ones in the list, but they are there.  Im not sure of
the naming of either...

But you are right,  you cannot selectively filter/select what
shows up on the FLASH display when new.
