UserCategory Filtering
So I was playing with PClassic, and noticed that the UI has a UserCategory filter option, but it comes up empty. Any reason the UserCategories aren't populating to be selected in that list?

Where is this UserCategory filter at? It's been a while since my P2 days so I'll have to remember what it IS first ;)

Then I can try and answer the question.

From any view (like the default TV view), hit options, then choose Filter... Second from the bottom is UserCategory.

Looks like its getting the list of filters direct from Phoenix_umb_getFilters, so it may be something that was added to the api after Phoenix 2, and was never working.

Actually, it looks like it's actually just trying to set the filter, but sort of getting stuck at an empty MediaBrowser branch. It seems to do this for any of the filters that require options (Genre and UserCategory). All the simply Boolean filters (MissingTV, ReRun, Watched, etc) work fine, and return right back to a filtered list.

Yeah, the filtering in the Media Browser was always only supported for 'simple' filters (i.e. boolean). There were tags added in the vfs file to distinguish these. I bet that when UserCategory got added that tag got copy/pasted over inadvertently. After a quick browse of the default vfs file I see a few others that likely won't work...

Not a huge deal for me, at least.. As I said, I was only just playing with it. Most of my views will end up being made in a vfs xml file anyway, and used in PLite if at all I'm guessing.
