How not to put Recorded TV in alphabetical order

Not sure why this bothers me so much, but why is it the Vista Media Center Recorded TV list, has shows like “The Office” with the shows that start with T’s instead of the O’s? One of my first jobs when I was still in high school was working at a video store and while I wasn’t kick’n back behind the counter watching The Hunt For Red October for the 100th time, I was putting movies back on the shelves, and I can tell you one thing for sure, at The Reel Place, we didn’t do it that way.

    Recorded TV is listed in the descending order it has been recorded rather than show title. The most recent episodes show up at the ‘top’ of the list.

    Actually it’s configurable. You can choose by date or by title, and when you choose title it puts any show with multiple episodes into folders so they don’t take up as much space.

    I love it if you could use to use the folders and still keep in chronological order, but that isn’t an option.

    Either way, when you choose alphabetical, all the “The” are together instead of where they belong.

    sounds like a typical windows explorer view. I know what you mean, you prefer the iTunes sorting where it excludes ‘the’ and ‘a’ at the beginning of an artist’s name when sorting the artists. but obviously movie stores used it before iTunes did.
