View Full Version : Filter feature gone??

Has the ability to filter movies by genre been removed from the new version? That was a very useful feature for someone with a large movie collection (like me). If it was removed, consider this a vote for adding it back.

I haven't seen this option either.
I didn't really use it because it was hard to tell what genre the film was tagged. I have ordered all my files in the finder by genre so...

Yeah, it might have been hard to tell how a particular movie was tagged, but to me Boxee did a pretty good job tagging and I found it useful. For instance tonight I'm having some friends over to watch a horror flick (since Halloween is approaching), and it's much easier to select the horror genre and browse through 20 - 30 selections than browse through the entire collection of several hundred movies searching for the ones that are horror flicks.

I think this feature should be added back to boxee, then if people don't like it, they don't have to use it.

I have the same request as Cubsfan61, I miss the "genre" filter option

I would even like to have more options in the filter function, abiity to choose a movie director, an actor, the title of a movie...

These kind of functions becomes very useful when you start to have a large media library.
