    I am a first time MP user but not a novice at HTPCs (MCE 2005 was last platform). I am moving away from MCE since My Movies 2 is no longer supported and MM3 is Vista and beyond.

    In downloading MP, I read the 1st Time Users Guide instructions. It states " ... start MediaPortal configuration... Browse to Movies/Movie Folders and specify the location of your movie collection." My MediaPortal config screen does not have that option. Did I install wrong?

    Apparently the Movies option went away and the 1st users guide is incorrect. I set up my movies folder under videos and it worked reasonably well.

    Two questions come to mind...

    Does MP have a similar feature as Media Center where you can filter movies that have not yet been watched?

    Is there a way to make all movies appear in one listing despite them being in multiple folders?
