Frontend will automatically categorize by genre if that information is  
available in the metadata. I guess the simple answer is "No, you can't  
search". The better response is. "What exactly are you trying to  
achieve and maybe we have a suggestion to help you get there." Trying  
to figure out what you should watch? (Watch List might help.) Tired of  
navigating through all the programs to get to the one you want? (Page  
Up/Down will help.)
