Full Version: SORTTITLE using movieset name

Wonder if anyone else is seeing this.

I just scraped "2001: A Space Odyssey" which I already had in my library and was previously scraped using Media Companion. When I update my library, it disappeared but my total # of movies didn't change so I knew it was still there somewhere. Turns out that it was moved out of the #'s and into the T's between "The Sound of Music" and "The Sting" (BTW...I do NOT ignore articles). I was baffled until I looked at the NFO:

The only thing that I can think is that XBMC uses the SORTTITLE instead of TITLE for sorting. Is this the case? And if so, why is TMM using the movieset name for the sorttitle?

John
the reason for this is that XBMC can sort all movies for a movie set together

Example (Indiana Jones)

- Raiders of the Lost Ark
- Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
- Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
- Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

in this example, the first part will be unter R while all others are under I
When adding them to a movie set, the sorttitle (movie set name + counter) ensures that in XBMC every movie of this movie set is displayed together

Thank you Manuel.

If I want to turn this functionality off, do I do so in TMM or XBMC? I know that there is a setting in XBMC for enabling Movie Sets but I have not enabled this.
