How can I add custom items to my home menu (anime menu?)

Hi guys, I've come over from Kodi to using mrmc on an Apple TV. Everything looks familiar so far, but I can't seem to figure out how to customize my home menu beyond disabling and enabling stock items. You see, I want to de-clutter my TV shows and movies menus by separating out my anime TV show and movies and making separate entries for them on the home menu. I was able to do this on Kodi with smart playlists and I think I even edited XML files or something back on MediaPortal to achieve something similar.

How can I do this on mrmc? Even if there's no officially-supported way, I don't mind say, editing the pictures or music menus to turn them into custom menu items if someone can point me in the right direction!

If you would like them as part of the mysql library then there is no other way...

You can try setting up the playlists, they will show as separate “playlist” entry on the home screen or by adding the new source that is not a part of the library and contains your Anime shows. You will need to mark it to show on home screen in source context menu

From the looks of that wiki, I'd need to setup a MySQL server? Is there a way to edit the stock menu without setting up a MySQL server?

When you said setting up a playlist, to do you mean creating a playlist to appear as a sub-menu of the TV Shows menu?

well, if you dont have mysql setup then you are using MrMC internal sql database, idea is the same.. you can only have one Movies and one Tv Shows tab.

you can setup smart playlist in media sources and that should enable "Playlist" tab on home screen where you can access it from

Very interesting, i didn't know this feature. I have many smart playlist created with kodi and i have mysql database with a qnap nas. Also these playlist are shared using the nas with path substitution feature using the advanceduser.xml file.

Is it possible to share this playlist with Mr.Mc? or Can i import it into Mr.Mc?

Thanks.

Exceptionally intriguing, I didn't know this component. I have many shrewd playlists made with Kodi and I have a database with a qnap NAS. Additionally, these playlists are imparted utilizing the NAS to way substitution include utilizing the advanceduser.xml record database administration.
