Easier Way to Search Playlist

The playlist gets cluttered and others don't seem to think a thumbnail based view like the iPad is proper on the Receivers. How about something else can anyone think of anything? Maybe even filter playlist by channel or allow you to make manual folders inside the playlist like little playlist.
Honestly, we find the different sort options sufficient. Sorting by date gets you the latest (or oldest) recordings, while title sort makes it easy to find a specific program.
That said, a simple text search by title or keyword would probably be useful for those with huge playlists. Manual folders would be a significant UI enhancement (search could reuse the existing search screens, simply adding an additional scope option) and there are other, more significant, enhancements in the queue (like a way to access the To Do List from a remote receiver).

I could definitely use a Search By Title or Keyword.
I've been wanting that for years.
