1. Either run the script to do it for you automatically - Settings->Skin->Movie/TV options or download one by one from lockstockmods.net***

2. Settings->Skin->Custom Home Options. From there you can set one favorite and one video playlist...

Answer 1: You can use the provided script in Settings/Skin/"Movie/TV" section. OR you can scrap all your shows with Ember Media Manager with the xbmcstuff module installed in it.

Answer 2: select the folder, select add to favorites, go to Settings/Skin/Custom Home. For Submenu under movies, scroll to "Custom Movies Submenus". Select "Set Custom Submenu Favorite 1". Label it whatever you want, Select "Set Favorite". A menu will show and select your folder in the menu.

This will work if items in the folder are scrapped into XBMC.
