    Love my Apple TV but hate watching movies through my home network.

    I have a LOT - and the movie app that comes when I go through 'computer' is pretty bare-bones: no search, no sorting, just a list basically...

    Is there a better way to do this?

    Thanks!

    Take a look at Plex. Install the server app on your computer and the client app on your ATV4. It's awesome.

    Agreed, Plex is a great option. In fact, you can keep your files where they are (I assume you have them managed via iTunes). Simply point Plex to the same folders and you are set.
