Hi,
I followed up the procedure to separate Music concerts from the normal movies here: Music_concerts (wiki).
I added the condition to the Movies node to exclude the concerts from there. It works correctly when I open it from Videos for example.
However, the problem is that if I click on Movies in the main menu I get the least off all the videos including concerts. Is it possible to modify this?

Thank you in advance.
Section 10 of that wiki page describes how to do that.
Excuse me, but I didn't explain me well.
I followed the section 10 and that's what I observe now.
1) If I click on Main menu -> Videos and then I select Movies -> Titles I get to the page called "Movies/Titles" and it lists only the movies. That's correct.

2) If I click on Main menu -> Movies I also get the page called "Movies/Titles" but it contains all the videos. That's not correct.

I wonder if there is a way to make Kodi open the filtered list of Movies also in the second case?

get it working with a smart playlist then you can edit a node with the info
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<smartplaylist type="tvshows">
    <name>Action</name>
    <match>all</match>
    <rule field="genre" operator="is">
        <value>Action</value>
    </rule>
    <order direction="ascending">sorttitle</order>
</smartplaylist>
