AppleTV: Clearing up a bug

I just noticed something odd re: categories, and it has messed up the categorization of the ATV, though it works for other devices. Here's the problem I'm trying to solve:

  • The FIRST GEN ATV ran off of an OS X Tiger base with Front Row. This was progressively modified up to software update 3.2, the last version to run off this base
  • The SECOND and THIRD GEN ATV units are iOS devices, though they can't yet use all iOS features. The 2G unit carried iOS 4.1 as ATV 4.0; the 3G unit started with iOS 5.1 as ATV 5.0.

That said, and having established different bases for the PVR and streaming units, then:

  • If correctly divided into their proper sub-categories, only the sub is displayed in the Device page
  • Rightly, the Apple TV category should instead open to the two sub-categories we've set up

This shouldn't adversely affect other device types, but what we COULD do is allow the user to filter along different device types.

Any workaround?

It looks like you've sorted it out with the sub-categories:

         / OS-X based
Apple TV  
         \ iOS based

I've changed around the Apple TV page to show the two sub-categories (and hidden them from the main page).

Got it. Much obliged.
