Yes, direct acces from the home screen button. I'm using the Aeon mQ7 skin. The rule does not work for the default Movies button on the homescreen.

When I replace the Movies menu on the home screen by selecting:
Replace Menu
Videonode
Movies
Titles, than the rule works.

But in this scenario the movie library status on the home screen is missing (total movies/unwatched) and my box set movies are not grouped.

Coming back to this I think I've worked out what's going on, as mentioned before the Estuary button uses a videodb:// style path and I hadn't at the time realised the implications of that. I've come to realise that when a videodb:// style path is used, it uses to query the database directly and so will take no account of the nodes and rules they have, so if you want to filer for those sort of videodb:// paths then it needs to be an SQL style query within the path.

To access the nodes so the rules they contain take effect, then the paths used in the skin must be the library:// style.

Therefore path for to Movies node is library:/videos/movies and to explicitly go to tiles it is library:/videos/movies/titles.xml

So if you change the rules for the standard included nodes and those changes are not reflected when pressing the existing main menu button when you need to check the path type used for that button and make sure it's a library:// path.
