I have a couple thousand movies, and lots of TV shows. 


When I am trying to find a particular movie, I have to scroll all the way from A to whatever the name of the movie is.  There is no search feature.  So this can take a LONG time to scroll, and is just silly.


We are on like version 7 of the AppleTV software.  Why won't Apple implement a search feature for Movies or TV Shows?  Do they not expect me to have more than a handful?  Is this an anti-piracy scheme?  Trying to steer me from having so many movies?  Why?


There is a search feature for Music in my Library...
