    Hi my fellow mac nerds....

    Un-like the majority i love the new FrontRow, i have my external HD packed with TV shows and Movies which i have made alias' to the 'Movies folder' on my macbook.

    but..... and there is always a but, i want my TV shows from my hard drive to display in the TV folder on front row rather than the Movies folder.
    Does anyone know of a shortcut of how i can place a 'TV Shows alias' folder in the Itunes libary to appear in FrontRow under TV shows?

    Thanks people.

    Power to the Mac
    :apple:for Life!!!!!

    I think the only was is to import them into iTunes and change them to TV show. However this does leave you with one VERY annoying problem. You do not get a subfolder for season/series. What you end up with is:

    TV Shows -> Show Title -> All Episodes

    Rather than the sensible

    TV Shows -> Show Title -> Season Number -> Only the episodes from that season!

    Oh and also it starts with the last episode first, eg

    Episode 10, Season 3
    Episode 9, Season 3
    Episode 8, Season 3
    Episode 7, Season 3
    Episode 6, Season 3
    Episode 5, Season 3
    Episode 4, Season 3
    Episode 3, Season 3
    Episode 2, Season 3
    Episode 1, Season 3
    Episode 10, Season 2
    Episode 9, Season 2

    Which is a real pain if you want to watch as show from the beginning!

    I hope (but doubt it) that Apple will fix this issue.
