What, you mean you haven't finished the mods yet
The above sounds great.

"The menu takes you straight to the title page and it's easy to forget the other options are there one tier up (I don't have the "Up one Level" icon showing)."
I'd like my XBMC to do both these things, can anyone point me to some information on how to do it?

What I would really find useful is custom categories that the user can define. For example: children, exercise. Mythtv has this functionality and I miss it now that I am moving over to xbmc.

A possibility to filter movie titles by first letter may be useful.

First letter won't be done, as IMO it's a useless way to browse your titles. Just use the jump by letter instead.

Do you mean the SMS Jump here? Or has there been a new development? I saw a post recently about using "Shift-letter", but not sure that works on the xbox with a remote.
I appreciate the next/Prevletter addition. Works a treat with the onscreen GUI SMS jump I made for PM3.

Just Next/Prev, JumpSMS, and SHIFT-letter, yes.

I just wanted to say that these library changes plus the hd flagging merge will honestly change the way I use XBMC every day. I am extremely excited about them, thanks for the hard work jmarshall!

I can live without first letter filtering as well. But I also know my wife would be very grateful. Kids know which movie they want to watch and a simple way to filter by first letter would be a savior.
Edit: or maybe adding support so that SHIFT-letter can be used through a skin:

With a remote you can use JumpSMS2 -> JumpSMS9
Or you can use NextLetter/PrevLetter
It's completely up to you.
