They only show up if you are navigating inside the LOTR Trilogy collection, which you would likely only do if you wanted to watch one of them. Otherwise you just breeze right past the top level "trilogy collection" folder and everything stays neat in your browser.
I don't have my server online so I just used a small Dolby 7.1 Demo video I had (100MB) and stuck it in the folders. But I created a fake library real quick. I just used the same test video for each folder just to simulate the effect.
Here is the first folder I named it "NICK TEST AVS" but you probably would call it "BR rips" or something like that. Inside that I have a "Lord of the Rings Trilogy" folder mixed into a couple fake popular movies I created for effect. I converted that "LOTR TRILOGY" folder into a box set or into a nested folder.
Inside I have the 6 movie folders above - 3 movies each part 1 and part 2 for each of the 3 movies.
This is how I did it:
Top level folder I called "NICK TEST" [this would be your rips folder probably]
navigate inside you see some fake movies I made:
if you go inside the LOTR folder you have some view options:
Cover Flow view:
Then you just jump into the movie:
Assuming the above was "part 1' you would then exit when part 1 was over with "back" key on remote, enter the next one that is "part 2" and play.
Seems easy enough.
Who cares if you have 6 folders and 2 for each movie, one for part 1 and one for part 2 ?? It's easier and probably safer to do it this way than try to MKV merge them and suffer audio sync issues. I would expect future version to include the feature like MB2.6 had where it will automatically play the second video file when the 1st movie finishes in a future build anyways. At that point you can just delete part 2 folder and move the part 2 MKV to the same folder as part 1.

But that's still harder to get up
When part 1 finishes you click "back" then select the second movie folder you want and hit "enter" then hit "Play"
