I'm considering importing my home videos into my iTunes library so I can easily access them over any device in the house. The one problem I'm seeing is when I add home movies, and I have them labeled as home movies in iTunes, on the apple tv they just show up under the movies selection for my iTunes Library. I heard you can label them as TV Shows and have a bit more control, but honestly I'd just rather have a "Home Movies" option and "Movies" option to pick from on my main screen? Is something like this possible?

If you don't mind sacrificing the Genre tag, you could tag "real" Movies with Genre="Movie", and your home movies with Genre="Home Movie", and then browse by Genre on the ATV.

I set the genre to 'Home Movies'. While they are still intermingled with actual movies when viewing ALL, I peruse movies by genre.
