I was getting tired of Xzener's genre folders so i made the ones below.  I use them on Showcase Mod/Multiplex with red curtain background - standard view, two rows of five thumbs. Although, they will probably also look good as scrolling thumbs across the bottom.   I kinda like the look...

Also looks good if you use only ONE of the templates.... FLOW1 here:

thanks!  I updated the first post in this thread.

Use 'em if you like.  Hardest part is figuring out how you want the folders to flow... and sticking to it.    Then it is easy to paste in the images. Kinda fun actually.

I am only familiar with the gen 1 WDTV - I hate to change when something is working.... and I dont want to spend time redoing everything - i have over 1,000 folders.   See the links in my signature for mod help.

I put movies in their own folders and group them by genre.  Rename the genre.jpg  icons above to folder.jpg and place inside each genre folder.  On my hard drive, each movie folder has seven files (six if the trailer is not available)

Movies
---Action
------folder.jpg
---Crime [GENRE FOLDER]
------folder.jpg [GENRE FOLDER ICON]
------Lincoln Lawyer, The [MOVIE FOLDER]
---------folder.jpg [MOVIE POSTER THUMB]
---------folder_sheet.jpg [SHOWCASE MOVIE FOLDER SHEET]
---------Lincoln Lawyer, The.avi [MOVIE]
---------Lincoln Lawyer, The_Trailer [trAILER]
---------Lincoln Lawyer, The.avi.tgmd [THUMBGEN METADATA]
---------Lincoln Lawyer, The.jpg [SHOWCASE PLAY BUTTON]
---------Lincoln Lawyer, The_Trailer.jpg [SHOWCASE TRAILER BUTTON]
---Drama
------folder.jpg

I use Cylents Showcase Mod (ver 2.0) with a modified multiplex sheet. Red curtain background - standard view, two rows of five thumbs.  File and sheet generation is automatic with Thumbgen.
