Music Tree Album Sorting

Post by jensph » Wed Jul 18, 2007 4:26 am

In my music tree set-up I have a two level node: Artist | Album, and the album is sorted alphabetically. (I'm still a bit confused what is performing the alphabetical sort, the Twonky server or my PS3 client?)

In any case, I think it is much more natural that the albums would be sorted by release date. The year data is in the MP3 files contained in the albums and Twonky has the option of a Year node so I know it should be able to. I could add a Year level between Artist and Album, but then navigation would be cumbersome.

Can Twonky do what I want?

This is EXACTLY the same issue I have ! I thought there was a way with earlier versions, but I can't find it on 4.3

There must be a TwonkyGuru who can answer this one !? :P

sorry - but adding the additional level is the only way to solve this

What is that ? You already had this feature in older software and now it's not possible anymore ?

That not ok in my opinion.

I would like to sort the years of the albums of one artist in this order:
Back in black
Fly on the wall
Ball breaker

for this I need a sort order in the music tree, please re-implement this feature it is basic and very important.

Would this be possible to put into the next version ?
