I just noticed after reading someone's post here that Smart Playlists actually work with the Apple TV. Including video playlists! This is huge! You have to enable all playlists, not just music playlists, in the Apple TV settings. Once you do that, video playlists will appear in a playlist section under the All movies sort option. You can use the playlists to add all sorts of missing categorizations or filters ... for example, by year, or newly added movies. You can also create playlist folders to group the playlists together and that works too! I was especially irritated to not have a browse by year option, so this works tremendously, although it requires a lot of initial playlist setup. I'm sure I'll think of all kinds of interesting smart playlists to set up in the future too. Exciting!
