I set out to try this:
- setup one of the CUSTOM menu items as a secondary Movies item (was going to call it Movies2 for now)
- setup several of the sub-menu items for different subsets of the Movies library (Parents, Kids, Documentaries, etc)
The goal was to have a Movies Main Menu item that really didn't do anything on it's own but by pressing the down button - you could select a sub-library(Kids movies for example) and have ONLY those movies show up. If it worked, I was going to disable the primary Movies Main Menu Item. I currently have the sub-groups in separate folders within a Movies folder - so I setup Favorites for each sub-folder. I couldn't get the new "Movies2" item to come up though - guessing b/c nothing was assigned to it? Even though it was activated - it didn't appear on the Menu. So I tried setting it to CUSTOM - with nothing specified for the "custom" item. That didn't work either. I tried setting a Favorite to it (just to see if that would make it show) and it did. But the Favorite I assigned to it was a Fave pointing at the Main Movies folder...so I didn't realize that selecting that changed "Movies2" to "Movies".
When I went out of settings...that menu item showed up - but my default Movies menu item was gone (no doubt b/c the same name was used?) IE: nowhere to be found to activate or deactivate! And after disabling the new Custom menu item and resetting all settings for that menu item (and sub items) - still no Main Menu item of Movies...just goes from Music to TV Shows (see pic below).
So did I mess something up? Or is this a bug that not likely anyone might have stumbled on unless you're trying to do something crazy like this?
BTW: - the sub menu items didn't seem to work properly either...just brought up a screen with no covers, and no background or art - and pressing up, left, right...did nothing. I should have grabbed a screencap of that...but didn't think of it before I reset everything.
I'd like to have my Movies back
But I'd also like to find a way to do what I'm describing - so if anyone has a recommended setup scenario...please feel free to share (or PM me).
only possibilty that the customizer movies main menu item isn´t availbable anymore is when your movie library has no content. if it has, it shows up.
i also strongly recommmend to work with smart video playlists instead of favourites pointing to folders.
