Never used that feature for videos, but I would guess that it has to do with the information encoded in the file by iTunes (the tag data). You should go into iTunes, see how the South Park episodes are grouped, then select all your family vids and edit their tag in a similar fashion.

It might be grouping them as "Shows" so maybe that's what's keeping them together. Try making like a completely new genre, like Family, or something. Other than messing around with the Info option I'm not really sure what else to do.

Yes, they have to be TV shows. Do a "Get Info" on one of your family videos, then select the "Video" tab. Under "Show" name all of your videos the same (this will be the grouping it uses) and then give them episode numbers (this determines the order they're displayed in). Make sure under "Video Kind" you select "TV Show."

That's it.

Yeah, I would go with changing them.

I don't put any movies on mine, though, so I wouldn't know.
