    Default Smart Filter All/Any limitations

    Before I tell you what I'm missing in Mezzmo 5 I rather tell what I would like to accomplish because someone here online might find an idea how to accomplish this otherwise.

    In the "Genre" of movies there is no specific "children" genre. There is "animation, Family, etc"but nothing specific for children.
    There's also content rating, but it's different for many countries.

    So I want to have a list of animations, which is only valid for "children" Which doesn't exist as genre so either I go over thousands of files manually and edit the media info manually
    or I use the content rating.

    But here I might consider: PG G or PG-13 all 3 considered "Children"
    but also between countries saying:
    P, G, PG, U, FSK 0, FSK 6, ALL, APTA, etc = Children.

    So I might want to use the "smart list filter" and set it to "any"

    However, I want to limit it only to the genre: "Animation"
    for which I had to use "all" which basically means: AND
    the "any" basically means OR

    So what I would need would be a combination of AND/OR

    Say:
    IF ( (genre == "Animation" ) && (cert == "P" || cert == "G" || cert == "PG" || cert == "U" )
    That would be what I actually would need.

    At the same time, those included here, I would have to "exclude" from the list for adults.
    But here I also have already some "AND" rules where I would also need some "OR" possibilities together with the AND.

    So.. any ideas how to accomplish that without requesting a new feature for mezzmo 5?

    One trick to remember from Boolean logic (DeMorgan's Theorem) is that if you not an AND function it becomes an OR function. So it's a negative logic approach but will work.

    Your example would become:

    IF ( (genre == "Animation" ) && (cert != "R") && (cert != "NC-17") && (cert != "TV-MA") etc..

    Just add the addition ratings you don't want and exclude the ones you do want.

    You could also set the content rating on the playlist to be only for PG then when you set the genre to animation it will only show PG animation.

    Peter,

    I don't believe there is there an option for less than or greater than for the Content Rating in the Smart filter options ? I am thinking of scenarios where someone wants a playlist to be say PG and below or similar. If it doesn't exist it might be something to consider in the future.

    Instead of setting the content rating in the smart rule you could set the content rating for the device to PG and then when viewing the animation playlist only PG and below rating files would be shown.
