I have the same problem with music. Winston's suggestion isn't really that practical because you cannot search playlists that are in Home Sharing. All you can do is scroll.....and scroll....and scroll.
Both you and I, Mementoh, have highlighted one of the many weaknesses of iTunes/iPods/AppleTV and Home Sharing. For all of Apple's lauded usability, this whole area is pretty dire.

I agree. This is apple we are dealing with. We don't need a work around, we need a fix. It doesn't seem like a difficult task either, not to mention a necessary addition to the command line.

agree, scroll and scroll is not SEARCH. Aple can do it since it can be done in the remote app. The only feature missing in the remote app is the ability to search by cast or director (currently only serach title).
