Again the alphabetical problem with Denon AVR3808

Decided to rebuild my Ubuntu Server. PInstalled Twonky 7.2.8. Unfortunately I have the problem (as I had several times before with former Twonky versions) that tracks are listed alphabetically and not in track order. With former Twonky versions I was able to solve this matter, now I am not. I added the extra lines to view-definitions.xml, but that does not help.

It is a problem with the Denon AVR3808. When I use another device (Dune HDmax) the tracks are in the proper order.

With older versions of Twonky it could be solved by adding XM:IGNORESORT to clients.db, where you directly influence the specific media player (i.e. the Denon). But this possibility seems to be gone with this Twonky version.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.
Martin

Found the solution. The IGNORESORT-option still exists, but you have to make changes in the proper DEVICE.XML.

Go to /usr/local/twonky/resources/devicedb/Denon/DENON_AVR-3808.XML (in my case). Instead of /usr/local it could be that you find Twonky in /etc/init.d on your system. Edit the file: in DeviceQuirks, add the line <Quirk>IGNORESORT</Quirk>

<DeviceQuirks>
<Quirk>CANNOTREGISTERDEVICE</Quirk>
<Quirk>FORCE_4TH_FIELD</Quirk>
<Quirk>IGNORESORT</Quirk>
</DeviceQuirks>
