Hoping someone can help me figure out what is happening here. Thx in advance!

Trying to combine two playlists to create a "Kids Movies" list...

Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<smartplaylist type="movies">
  <name>Kids Movies</name>
  <match>all</match>
  <rule field="playlist" operator="is">Family Movies Rated G</rule>
  <rule field="playlist" operator="is">Family Movies Rated PG</rule>
</smartplaylist>

using...

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<smartplaylist type="movies">
<name>Family Movies Rated PG</name>
<match>all</match>
<rule field="genre" operator="contains">Family</rule>
<rule field="mpaarating" operator="is">Rated PG</rule>
<order direction="ascending">title</order>
</smartplaylist>
+
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<smartplaylist type="movies">
<name>Family Movies Rated G</name>
<match>all</match>
<rule field="genre" operator="contains">Family</rule>
<rule field="mpaarating" operator="is">Rated G</rule>
<order direction="ascending">title</order>
</smartplaylist>

I'm not an expert but I play one at work.

The problem is <match>all</match>. No movie is in both playlists.
