    The folders grouping series shows, HDTV, and recently deleted items are nice but is there any way to create custom folders either officially or unsupported?

    With the 9.1 software, you can customize the names of your wishlist folders.

    You cannot edit the name of the HDTV folder or recently deleted folder.

    Thanks. Is there any way to move content in and out of these folders?

    No there is not. Custom folders would be a great feature for us tweakers, but my guess is we are unlikely to see it.

    However, you can get *very* innovative with ARWL folders. You can edit the ARWL as often as you like, and name it what you want. Once a show is in an ARWL folder, it will stay as long as you don't turn off the Auto-Record function (or delete it).

    Example: Create a Wishlist with title "Busty". Make it ARWL. It will record "Busty Cops II: Bigger & Better". But custom name the WL something like "Snakes of Africa" (my wife hates snakes). Then once it has recorded, to keep it from picking up other shows, change the title to Bustyxx or something it will never find.

    Then later you see a show you want called "Sin City Diaries". So now you change your title field to pick this up. But it will still get dumped in the "Snakes" folder.

    Innovative uses for our new WishList features! :D
