Sorry if this has been asked before but I couldn't find anything recent.

Is it possible to take multiple shares and put them in one folder? Because of the piecemeal way I built my media collection, I don't have everything in a single array and don't want to invest the hundreds of dollars to set it up. As such I have 6 movie shares (movies1->movies5 and plus a TV share.

Is it possible to have all five movies shares show up in just a folder called "Movies"? I can do this in XBMC and other media management software but I can't figure out how to do it on the WDTV Live Gen 3.

Thank you.

You could run the free Plex server on the PC...Movies show up together...same with TV shows.
Add several different folders to the Movie category in Plex...on WDTV they show up together.

Plex will also show sub-folders on WDTV for "All Movies", "Recently Added", "Unwatched", etc.
Plex also adds thumbs on its own.

I switch back and forth between Plex and network shares myself.

If you enable the media library, all shares should be listed under it.
