Just curious, why doesn't Jamu or the mythvideo metadata grabber let
us assign content by folder? I think most people organize their
libraries such that TV shows are in one folder and movies are in
another. Then I could easily just say in my config file that this
whole folder is TV shows. Then there is no more guess work involved.
This is how XBMC and does it and it is very intuitive and works great.
