Windows 7: Can you create a separate folder in WMC for TV?

Can you create a separate folder in WMC for TV?

My issue is that I have a separate folder on my storage drive for tv shows, and I want to be able to watch them in another room via my Xbox 360. I've added the folder to the library list for both recorded tv and videos but none of the shows appear. I don't really want to add them to the movies area (where my movies do show up) since I prefer keeping them separate. Can I create another folder for these tv shows or is there a way to make them appear in the recorded tv folder?

Am I to assume, after 200 views and no replies, that this cannot be done?

This can be done, I have it set up this way, I installed My Movies 4 which has this feature and works seamlessly with WMC. also has a few other nice features.

Ok so I tried this fix only to discover it can't install because I don't have SP1. I can't install SP1 due to an error so I guess I'll make another thread about that then come back to this one once I get that sorted out. Thanks for the suggestion DxxS.
