Req Keep sort option; Replace non ASCII char. with single letter... and one more
#1
I cannot emphasized enough how pleased I am with this program.Big Grin
However I would like to suggest some change’s to improve the features. (I hope I did not missed somthing what is already there...)

1. Keep sort option
Currently every time when I’m start the program the movies sorted by Title, ascending. (I prefer Date added/descending)
I would like to ask to put a checkbox into “Extend filter and sort options” beside “sort by”:
x Remember sorting rules (or something like that…)
(BTW. The sorting function is totally missing from TV shows. Is that intentional? )

2. Replace non ASCII characters with single letter
Currently:
Ä=> Ae, Ö=>Oe, ß=>ss, =>, Æ=>Ae…
I would like to get an option to do like that as well:
Æ, Ä, Á… =>A; Ö, Ő, Ó…=>O; ß=>s;

3. Update Data sources/media info “only new films”
However right now I have 1500+ films and pushing “Update data sources” TMM scans it very quickly (around 1 minutes). This is so nice, but I have an idea to improve it.

We have a folder structure / data sources like this (one movie per folder):
Source 1:
Z:\Film_main
--------Star wars I
--------Star wars II
--------.
--------.
--------Terminator I
--------Terminator II
--------...
Source 2:
Z:\Film_wife
--------Romantic blabla I
--------Romantic blabla II
--------.
--------.
--------...


If TMM create special folder for new movies when I add datasources in settings, than I can put new film to this special folder and TMM needs to scan only that folder and can move to parent folder. Let me explain with example:

Before Update data source
Source 1:
Z:\Film_main
--------@New_movies_special_folder
----------------New Movie1
--------Star wars I
--------Star wars II
--------.
--------.
--------Terminator I
--------Terminator II
--------...

Source 2:
Z:\Film_wife
--------@New_movies_special_folder
----------------New Movie2
--------Romantic blabla I
--------Romantic blabla II
--------.
--------.
--------...

After Update data source
Source 1:
Z:\Film_main
--------@New_movies_special_folder
--------Star wars I
--------Star wars II
--------.
--------.
--------Terminator I
--------Terminator II
--------...
--------New Movie1

Source 2:
Z:\Film_wife
--------@New_movies_special_folder
--------Romantic blabla I
--------Romantic blabla II
--------.
--------.
--------...
--------New Movie2

It can be similar for the TV shows.

Please note: Even this things are not implemented I will not change my opinion stated in the first row….WinkAngel

1) noted.
It works already in 2.7 with the filters, unfortunately not yet for the sorting options...

2) should already work; Æ is replaced with Ae here
It's a generic normalization feature - we simply can't provide all examples Wink
But here is the spec ^^ http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr15/ (using NFKD)

3) well, i know what you are trying to do.
Unfortunately, an "update datasource" does more, than just searching for top level folders...
So, no, we probably won't change that...

But you might create 2 different datasources (new, main) for each of you, for a faster update.
Then move them around at OS level.... and just press update once in a while...

PS: with 2.7 we're even faster Wink

Thanks for response!
1) OK

2) Huh... that generic normalization feature is a little too complicated for me Confused
But maybe I was not so clear to describe my wish. I would like to get a simple character as a normalization result like this:
Æ=A (not Ae)
Ö=O (not Oe)
ß=s (not ss)

Most importantly in my native language: Blush
ö=o
ő=o
ó=o
ü=u
ű=u
ú=u
é=e
á=a
í=i

Ö=O
Ő=O
Ó=O
Ü=U
Ű=U
Ú=U
É=E
Á=A
Í=I

But never mind, if it is too much work don't spend your time...

3) Fair enaught Wink

2) ok, my bad, didn't read correctly :p
At least, the first 3 and umlauts are kinda special... the others should be pretty fine
i'm not sure if we can make this right for everyone (beside a configuration overhaul...)
In some languages, such ligatures as Æ are 2 characters, in some others just one....
