categories and genres are to different things in the database. One video 
can belong to one category but more than one genres (unless some change 
mythvideo since I wrote this feature).

When I did it, I had in mind to make the difference between trailer, 
movie, serie, .... using category while genre hold hmmm .... the genres :)
