I have been able to tag videos that I have ripped from dvd's using MetaX. When I view them on the AppleTV, it displays the director (along with other info) on the info screen. However, in iTunes, I cannot seem to search by director. I also cannot create a smart playlist that looks at the director field. Am I missing something? Or is this functionality not implemented? Thanks.

    I've got the same problem. I had my movies even sorted by film studios, eg PIXAR.

    in iTunes 10, when I typed PIXAR, it showed all my Pixar movies.

    now, it doesn't show anything.


    why is every update since Steve Jobs' death a sh1t-date?
