    ok so ive got frontrow set up, and ive got about 200gb of video files

    mainly movies and tv shows
    they are on an external lacie drive, and i have them in 2 folders (movies and tv shows) they movies folder has all my movies as single files

    and the tv shows has sub folders of the tv show, then subfolders of those as the season of the show

    so a certain episode of simpsons is under lacie-tv show- simpsons- season 3- episode

    now when i open up front row and go to tv shows, it only shows those that i downloaded from itunes, and when i go to movies in frontrow it shows EVERY single file in my movies folder + tv shows subfolders there in alphabetical order. it doesnt show the folder of simpsons season 3, and then let me get the episodes there

    i have all these videos shortcutted in itunes too

    how do i have the tv shows show up as tv shows? and have the seasons folder show up in front row?

    They won't show up in TV Shows unless you buy them from the ITMS...

    If you drop an Alias to your external drive in your Movies folder, they will all show up in there.
