First off - amazing product. Been using an HTPC since back in the Meedio days.
Here's my issue.
I have approx. 1,400 DVD's ripped in native format (VIDEO_TS folders) stored on my servers.
My movies fall into 4 categories (Kids, General, Baby & Fitness)
I'm looking for a way to place the movies into the proper categories, so when viewing in Media Center the user can choose the category and see the movies in that category.
I've come up with the following two methods, but neither are easy to implement.
- Add to every movie a genre ( -Kids, -General, -Baby, -Fitness) and mark that movie to not update the genre. This works, however because there is no method that I can find to edit movies genre in bulk, it work take forever to do this.
- Create a collection for each category of movie. The problem with this is that there is no way that I can find to add movies to a category without typing the movie name. If all movies were displayed, and I simply selected the movies to be included in each category, this would work.
Has anyone else tried to manage their collection with this method? Any help would be great.
