Sharepoint 2010 Showing Parent task list in team sites

Hi, I have Sharepoint 2010 and am using a task list at the parent level.  This works great! I have now started Team sites for different departments but we are still using the task list at the master level.  I am trying to figure out a way to display the master task list on the team site with it filtered to just the tasks specific to the team.  I was able to get a list to display in the team site by using this video tutorial.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SfpgoEUlIw

My issue now is that it will display the list but will NOT accept FILTERS or allow you to add/remove columns at the teamsite level.  I tried building a webpart at the master level with the filters and correct columns and then exporting that to the library and importing it to the teams site..  Looks Great until you do something with it then it blows out the filter and displays ALL the tasks in the master list..   I could just stick with doing everything in the Master site but I REALLY like the features of the team site and it seems like there has to be an easy way to accomplish this..

Sorry but this is a common problem with SharePoint web sites.  The parent can pull data from the children sites however the children sites have limits to what they can do up by navigating up to the parent in the APIs.  It can be done at times but we've already found it to be very difficult.

It's actually easier to put the team data in the team sites then create a master list in the parent site that collates the data from the team sites.

The only easy way I can see to do it is using a custom search web part in the team sites that trims the results.
