You can filter the display of MythVideo.  I use the gallery view so in there
I believe you hit MENU to get a list of filtering and on that screen is a
box to set this by default.  I would set the kids to be the default view and
then change the filter when you want to see more.  Music is all about
playlists so you probably have to look there for options.
