    I am currently ripping all my dvd's to mp4 and adding them itunes. I have put them i different categories like action / drama / child movies and so on. Turning on appleTv2 under My library - movies, these categories pop up as they should and each movie is located the way I want.

    The problem is when I ripp all my different boxset/mini series. I would like a category named boxset the same way the other categories are, this is no problem. But opening that category I would like a new folder/categorie that says: Back to the future, Taken, The Pacific, Lost and all the other series I got. I then would like to open those to find the actual episode I'd like to watch.
    Now I only get all the series in a big pile under the boxses category whitch is hoples when I intend to add most of my 40 different mimiseries and series like Sopranos and other big series.

    Sounds like are you putting TV shows in to the Movies section on iTunes, which is wholly inappropriate.

    It you add them as TV shows, you'll be able to sort by the name of the show > episode or categories (drama, comedy etc) > episodes. You can use iDentify to batch tag your media without manually entering data for each episode.

    It is some tv shows, but also boxsets like The Bourne Collection, Alien Collection, Back to the Future. I'd like to sort them as written above earlier.

    You can use the sort order fields in the tagging tools (like identify2).

    Just give the sort name like "Bourne 1", "Bourne 2", etc and they'll sort into that order in the main list by title.

    You can also create a dedicated genre for them -- but I only did that for the Bond movies, not "regular" trilogies...
