The groupings are normally determined by the programs's title and subtitle unless
you've turned on some other settings in which case you may see categories or
recording groups I believe.  I think what you want can be accomplished in current
SVN by using the title/subtitle editor for a recording and changing the title to
"Movies" and the subtitle to the actual movie name.  If you're running a 0.18.x
version, you'll have to wait for 0.19.  If you're running SVN, look on the popup INFO
menu for a recording to access the editor.
