One thing i noticed after processing movie files with WDTV "Get content info" feature  and the same with app here is the xml file generated with WDTV is able to sort the movies by Genre. While same is not working with xml generated by app.

It may be that you have the genres in different orders.
Hubgen creates multiple genres, but wdtv only looks at the first in the list and allows sorting/grouping on that one.
Edit the XML by hand, change the order to put the one you want to use at the top of the list and then clear the media library on the wdtv. It will take a while to regenerate but will be fine after that.
If you don't regenerate then you see your genre that you changed ok but the wdtv has cached its index and so it is still using the old value for sorting/grouping.

Well, it worked for me anyway.
