Description

I have added sort by description in Mythtvfrontend. In the XMLTV, I add in the first line of description "Season ## Episod ##/##" like that I have real sort episod in series.

Why not try directly in backend with when we insert the XMLTV in database? (next patch ?)

This is of extremely limited use-- my preference is that anyone who wants to do this should maintain their own patchset-- This just adds one more vector for 99.9999% of users to mis-set something and see a problem, and .0001% of users to not know that it's there in a maze of settings.

Also, this has nothing to do with video playback. Assigning to stuart since the PBB was written by him.

Sorting by episode number should be done using those values in the database (syndicatedepisodenumber etc) not by inserting them into a different field and sorting by that. I can't see why anyone would want to sort by description if they weren't using a hack such as the one you describe.

ok, but found 1 solution

"Record date" doesn't work if you don't record from the beginning of the series. "Original air date" doesn't work, all episod of same serie have got same date ! "Program ID", don't work if record on several channels or if you have some XMLTV source.

Replying to stuartm:

This is not me who made the database. This is not me who forgot to copy data. In this case, insert syndicatedepisodenumber into "Recorded" table For years it does not work and you do nothing That, I do not accept!
