    Default Folders and movies

    Is there any way with Apple TV of organizing movies so they appear in multiple folders. In particular I have literally hundreds of home movies and would like to organize them into folders to make easier navigation on the TV.

    I too have a lot of home movies and it really cluttered the MOVIES section on the AppleTV. I remember trying a lot of different settings, but never getting it to really work under the MOVIES section.

    The simplest way is to import your home movie into the MOVIES section and then open the GET INFO tab, then VIDEO tab and change the setting to TV SHOW. In the Show Description section type in Home Movies and in the season number put in the year -- or modify depending on how you want to organize your home movies.

    As I said, I tried changing a lot of the info using the MOVIE section and it never showed up right on the APPLE TV. Putting the home movie in the TV SHOWS sections gives you a lot of easy "foldering" options.

    Thanks a million for that, just the sort of workaround I was looking for.
