Minor Enhancement Suggestion

Postby DickyP » Fri Feb 04, 2011 7:49 am

At present TV Shows (either individual episodes, or Show season) are sorted in the display by the constructed name '{Show} Season {n} Episode {n}' or '{Show} Season {n}' sorted in alpha order. This works well most of the time but has its limitations with shows like CSI or the Sherlock Holmes and Poirot sets which had more than 9 series and/or episodes.

A possible enhancement would be to sort the numeric tail of the names in numeric rather than alpha order: eg, 1, ..., 9, 10, 11 etc.

Download http://www.danhinsley.com/downloads/MovieLibrary.exe and see if that works better. I didn't have any series with more than 9 seasons, so I couldn't test out that part.

Also be sure to use the option to not show all TV Episodes and then double click on a series and make sure those are all in sequence as well.

Let me know,

Dan,

Had the same problem with this as I did with the update you did for the 'German Movie Ratings Anomaly between MetaX and MovieLibr' post.

Possibly the version I was/am running uses older versions of the other dlls etc.

Details are:

MovieLibrary ver 2.3.0.0, modification date 01/10/2010.

Interop.Shell32.dll - v 1.0.0.0 , 29/5/2009 13:57
libmp4v2.dll - no ver, 12/12/2009 13:53
MP4Exe.exe - no ver, 29/01/2009 10:43
MP4V2VBWrapper.dll - no ver, 11/01/2010 09:58

Oops, I forgot I added the ability to update iTunes when archiving files. If you have MetaX installed, just copy Interop.iTunesLib.dll from the MetaX directory into the MovieLibrary directory.

Let me know if that works,

Works now including the Episodes when not showing them all by default.

Thanks

Whoops - sorry I lied! I checked that Seasons were in order when shown in summary (green), and episodes when a season is double clicked: I thought I'd checked the full display of all episodes but obviously I hadn't (I put it down to age!). it's only half right - episode yes, seasons no. See below.

Not quite - now shows all the season ones of each show, then season 2s etc.

It should show all Season 1's before showing any Season 2's. What did you think the behavior would be?

I can't tell much from the screen shot as it doesn't have multiple seasons of any show.

I expected all the Season of a show but in correct order if more than 9 seasons, then next show. Previously shows were in this order but Season 10 etc followed Season 1(as in one of my original pikkis - below) and it was just this I expected to change.
