Folders

I have a Sony Bravia TV
I've been using Serviio for many years now,and I am always annoyed by how many folders I need to go through
to get to my movies. Here is what I mean
First with the Sony TV controller I need to push the (input) button
2. then I need to push the (home( button
3 then I need to scan down to the (media) heading
4 then I need to click to the left
5. then I need to scan down to (video)
then changes the screen
Next I have to click on the Server logo
then I need to click on Movie folder
Now I have about 12 folders to choose from.
I click on the one titled (Folder)
then all the folders with my movies show.

So is there any way of making this simplier? and Why do I have so many folders
if you do have an answer to this
(removed by admin) is my direct contact..

Re: Folders

in the tab 'presentation' you can pick how you want files to be shown on your bravia TV.
"video: display content only"
disable all categories you're not interested in and for movies you select "display category"

now when you go to the serviio server on your bravia you can only pick movies and when you enter that you'll see all of your movies.
