Extend "The" ignore to movies.

Post by Nova5 » Sat Feb 09, 2013 9:12 pm

When browsing the Titles/A-Z section of the video tree a leading "The" puts a movie under "T", so "The Bank Job" appears under T, it really should be under B. This will lead to T having a massively large number of videos listed under it.

Ignoring of "The" currently only applies to Artist.

2008 - heck that is not so long :)

This really should be added *optionally* for both Music and Movies. Same for 'A'. One of the few things that iTunes (my fingers ache just typing that in) does better.

But it must have been user error as it certainly is working now .. thanks for the slap alongside the head :)

Yeah .. i have yet to play with that.

And as much as I love the 'addon' possibilities and appreciate all the hard work you guys do with them ... there are certain things that really should be in the product itself. Plus ... do all your addons work with the service? Or do they only work if I have MMW on?

I didn't try, but after reading some reports I think that Magic Nodes are available on UPnP with the service as well (http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=10937).
