    Hi. I've just bought a Dune and am very happy with it apart from one thing: the ability to search my video collection. I used to have a WDTV Live Hub where all you had to do was press Search on the remote and the onscreen keyboard let you search the entire HDD including sub-folders.

    The Dune has 'My Collection' which, I have to admit, I don't fully understand. It seems to making a mirror image of the files on the HDD and then giving them new names based on what it thinks the video is. This is not ideal for me as my collection is a mish-mash of stuff, not simply 'Movies' or 'TV Shows'.

    What I want is the ability to search the the filenames of my videos using the names they already have. I have no interest in 'metadata'. Is this possible with the Dune and, if so, how do I do it?

    My thanks for any assistance.
