Filter by Folder (v7)?

Does anyone know if there a way to filter my video folder so that only certain sub-folders show up?

I currently have my folders setup:

(Television contains imported TV shows, not recorded TV).

I am using TV Browser to view my TV series and that works fine because it uses metadata to filter, but in the default SageTV Videos menu all my TV shows still show up when I pick "All Videos." In version 6 it was trivial to filter just the movies or just the TV folders, but I can't seem to find a way to do it in version 7.

Yes it can be done

Instead of setting the import media directory at the top level (e.g. \\server\videos), set it for the next level down (e.g. separate import directories \\server\videos\tv and \\server\videos\movies). Also check if you have your PVR directory set as one of the media import directories with a check under videos - you probably don't want that.

Then in the options for the folder view itself set it to separate not shared.

You'll probably have to reindex the entire library for the change to show up.

You could probably also change some settings to the effect of importing recordings as videos if you're using the metadata tools.
