    Just want to give my two cents. I understand that multiple instances of the same plugin is difficult, but what about Johan's suggestion to have a direct link to a certain filter at the home screen? You could have one database, one plugin and for the people who want to use this plugin also for concerts (I am one of them), you could just make a shortcut to this filter on the home screen. I for one would very much appreciate such an option, because I don't feel concerts belong in the movie section. Moving Pictures is such a great plugin though, that it would be nice to have it monitoring my concerts as well. If this would give a lot of problems as well, I totally understand. I will look for a different solution then.

    I think this is a good idea, but it is not possible as far as I know with the current MediaPortal setup. It would require an enhancement on their end. Not to say this rules the possibility out. Maybe once we get 0.8 released we will look into it.

    Cool. In the meantime, I might try to use Myvideos for concerts for now.

    I guess I'll add to the thread also my support to the request for multiple instances of Moving Pictures.
    In my case for example I have 10 to 20 movies that I'm going to watch sooner or later, and then I have more than 400 movies that I archived and my access from time to time. In this case it would be super to have a "Main" movie menu and then a "Movies Archive" menu. Hope the new filtering feature will help in this direction.
    Oh, I forgot: GREAT PLUGIN!!!! Thanks fforde & C for this great contribution. I seriously think this plugin should be part of MP natively.

    I have a 'movie archive' and also a 'current movies'. At the moment I can't access the archive with MP as I can't access the two types separatly. In despair I even tried MyFilms - horrible experience...

    The ability to create "top level groups" should solve all issues.

    Means that i create i.e. 2 groups. Kids and Parents
    ideally there should be an option to assign PIN's, and set one of these groups as "default" if you want.

    So when i enter MP -> MovingPictures i will then see "Kids" and "Parents" as selectable items. (or if i set one of these 2 as default, i would instantly be presented with the movies they contain)

    You could do simmilar with i.e. "New Movies" and "Archive".
    So what you would have to do is to create such "Groups/Sections" and assign the movies to the right group.

    I am not sure, but i think that adding such a "group/section" feature should not even be "that much work". :)

    Btw. one more idea for such toplevel groups would be a automatically created "movies added during the last 14 days" item.
    just a thought. :)

    in the next release you can add movies manually to a category, and i assume through the gui once it's released. that way you could have a "Need To Watch" category with all the movies you mark for watching.

    an alternate would be to suggest an additional "Watched" switch (i.e. Watched, UnWatched, ToWatch)
