Question Adding Folders to ATV ??? is it possible ?

so to help get things organized as the movie library approaches the several hundred mark.... can folders be added within the movies so they can be broken into groups,... say comedy, drama, action etc ???

it get hard to scan hundreds of movies at a time...


thanks

I don't think you can add folders, but it can sort by genre. So, if you add the genre for your movies in iTunes, you can go genre by genre.

I feel ya. My list is getting out of control. The Genre option helps a little. It would be nice if you could view your own library the same way you can view rentals, with each genre in a row on the screen.

You cannot do it within iTunes, but you can do it e.g. with ATV files.
