    David,

    I think RPM hit the nail on the head here. IMO, you should have the media tab include everything it does now. Have the DVD tab renamed to VIDEO and have Video capability. In setup you would control which video directory gets placed in which section. Any directory you choose to be listed under the VIDEOS tab will be removed from MEDIA by default. That's what I feel would work best. This would satisfy both opinions on how the system should work.

    What do you think?

    P.S. Another posibility I can think of would be to leave it how you have it now with a 3 way toggle button in the MEDIA section. (MUSIC --> VIDEOS --> ALL MEDIA)

    Well, let's not call it "Video" since that is closest to Music Video which still belongs in the Media section.

    I would like the following 3 top-level seperate sections:
    Music (like media is now: Music files and Music Video files)
    Movies (DVD and files [DiVX/X-Vid/etc.])
    TV (I have SnapStream beyond TV as well as many downloaded TV series that I would like kept seperate from Movies as well as from Music)

    If I had a radio or a TV tuner I would want those embedded apps accessible under Music and TV respectivly as well, but I don't.

    Bottom line, music videos are cool to have mixed with music files. On the other hand, I don't want Gone and Sixty Seconds to come up when I load all artists in media mode. IMO, videos other than music videos do not belong with a collection of mp3 audio.

    Does it even do this? I would like it to do this with my Music Videos, but I have never seen a video in my now playing list when I load artists... I can only play them by loading videos. Therefore, it is still not really mixing Music Videos with my MP3's unless I go through multiple steps to load artists and then add Videos to the "playlist". I really never want to create playlists or have to "load" anything, I just want to be able to skip around in a full collection of all my MP3s and Music Videos. This is why I suggested being able to "sort" the now playing list on page 3 of the requests thread.

    For Movies I would like to be able to view them by Title, Genre, Actor, Director, or Decade just like I can do in Meedio.

    I would also like to be able to view Video Games with CoverArt and then have CF ShellExecuteEX the file so it will run in my NES/SNES/N64 emulator (just like I can in Meedio).

    no videos are mixed in with audio... they are clearly seperated... the only way to get to videos is being at the "root" of the library and going into "Videos"...

    Video section debate

    Perhaps you could just make a extra "Button action", which people could attach to the main-screen buttons, that would also open "Music/Manager" and go directly to the video section. Then everyone would be happy

    This is not a good thing. When I am browsing Artists, I want to see everything by that artist be it an MP3 or a Music Video (can you even "tag" video's with album/artist/genre? If so, I want it mixed.).

    Ok, well what about a database importer (like you do in Meedio to get directors, actors, genres, etc.).
