I also love the HD Movies option in some XBMC Skins... this should be a default menu item under ALL skins!
The idea with have some sort of filtered menu item is great (HD Movies) as this could be a custom menu item defined by the user to filter any library.. eg:
-Drum and Bass
Please Please Please make this available to the user to configure! This would put the cherry on the cake!
I agree. This is the most wanted feature in XBMC!

Here is an example of what is possible:
Wiki guide is here but I don't think the actual xml files have not made it into the build ye t so you will have to write your own.
If you want to start preparing, try making some smart playlists as this feature uses the same xml format.
Hi, I'm new.
I started to install XBMC to make my collection of over 1000 movies and TV-series more accessible.
For a few features I what very pleased by the posibilities in XBMC, but I was also a bit disappointed by XBMC.
I'm missing small features that would make it perfect for me. Reading a few topics here and especially this one gives me the idea that I'm not the only one who thought of a particular solution.
@bambam66 suggested something in his post that I'm also really missing in XBMC. I think that the reaction from @jmarshall and @zag isn't exactly on what @bambam66 really meant. Those posts are already quite old and I think it's a shame @bambam66 didn't correct the misinterpretation himself.
There is a difference of making custom categories in the library and the thing he suggests: making extra menu categories.
I for instance don't use the library at all. I don't look up a movie by genre or year, (who knows the release year of all his 1001 movies). I scroll through all my movies and pick one. I read the info and decide.
The thing @bambam66 suggested is customising the main menu. One can do that already a bit by leaving out databases like I did with 'pictures' and 'music' (Eden version), but what I think he suggests is that one should be able to add a category here as well.
I've got a few categories: movies, kidsmovies, series, animated series, kids animated series. They even are all on different disks in my server. I would like to have these categories available on the menu level, not on library level. Now, on menu level, one can only split on movies and TV-shows.
I woul really like this the ability to customise the main menu. I need that possibility so badly that XBMC is quite useless to me if not available.
If this is already possible please let me know
