Sorting by Year and Secondary Sort
#1
If I have a movie set and view the contents, by default it's sorts by year, which typically is what I want. I'm making custom sets for home movies so even though I set the premiered date in the NFO the contents of the set will have many files that have the same premiered date. I would expect a secondary sort based on sorttitle but it looks like it's using title. Is there a setting or override for this somewhere? It doesn't seem to be skin specific.

Why not add your home movies as a TV Show instead. Each movie is an episode and you control what order they are in by use of the Season and Episode numbers. Each season can be a year or a recurring event or however else you want to group them. You can also rename the seasons... Season_rename (wiki) It also has the added benefit of not cluttering up your movie library.

Another option is this... HOW-TO:Movie_universe (wiki)

Yea, I might try it out using TV Shows, but I have real TV Shows in my library so that won't make much a difference in that sense but having the seasons/and episodes might be handy. Either way the question about sub-sort is kinda separate from my end goal. I was hoping there's an easy way to change the behavior.

Edit: BTW I've made Custom Video nodes to keep the home movies separated.
