The parameter needs to be set as TVShows not TV Shows.
The submenu works to a degree now, however for some reason when I use the advanced controls to set the submenu, my normal TV shows won't default to title view. It goes into the root mode that then lets me select between title, genre, year, etc. Trying to set it as default won't stick. It'll work for a few tries then I'll go back in and it'll be back to the root. And everytime XBMC is restarted it defaults back. It won't stay as Title view.
However, if I go back to the simple mode, it goes right back into title view no problems. And it stays like that. I'm not sure what file I would have to edit to make sure it stayed like that or even where to look. But it's something that's kind of weird to me and a bit annoying.
Where are you trying to add the sources? Not all submenu's behave the same. buttons that direct to the video library can go into 'videos', 'movies', 'tv shows'. If you have a custom source that you added via 'add source' or edited the sources.xml file then they can only be added into 'videos' submenu.
If you are trying to add your own custom source that you labeled tvshows or whatever then edit the videos submenu. Make sure to change the toggle option to 'This button takes a custom source' then simply type in the name of the source. If you just want to create a button that directs you to the tv show titles in the video library, then there is already a default button in the videos submenu that directs you there. However if you want to create another button for whatever reason then simply use 'TVShowTitles' without quotes as the parameter. For reference, this page
lists what built in categories are available.
Another method is to use the folder path. I've added an option in skin settings in Rapier 3.06 that allows you to show the folder path in the info panel when you're browsing your media. For instance if I wanted to link to the animation genre in my movies library, I would navigate to it, make note of the library path in the info panel which in this case is videodb://1/1/19, and then copy it into the parameter field when editing the videos, movies, or tv shows submenu.
