    Xrecord request SORT and VIEW

    Hi fla

    Two wee requests?

    1. Sort - it seems to sort by date ascending or descneding only. Any chance of adding a filename sort?
    2. View - I'd like very much to see an exteneded view of the show name, I have 75 episodes of one series, and had to rename them to a very short name to see the difference between them. Attached a pic of the renamed version, but with a long filename they appear all as identical names... so I have to enter each one to see what it is called.

    Thanks!

    I added the sort thing to my list. Actually the only thing on my list was to fix the crash reading bad .dat files.

    For the view thing, have you tried the mixed mode view? In the stop menu you can set/clear mixed mode for a series. You can also make this mode the default in the config app's plugin settings tab for XRecord. In mixed mode you see more info about the episode so that might help.

    For some reason setting the default in the Config for Plugins didn't work (new shows only?) but I got it to change using the Ctrl-S Function thing.

    Unfortunately it doesn't quite do what I was after, still truncating the show name. I quite like the skinny list in the previous posts, I would just like it to wrap the lines a bit?

    Is there a reason why the title is duplicated? I have a directory with the series name, but the files do not repeat the show name

    The text after the "-" in the mixed view or in parenthesis in the short view is subtitle. I'd guess that whatever you used to import those files set the subtitle to be '<title> - <subtitle>' which is causing the title to be displayed twice.

    In xrecord skin.xml's NormalShowName, SelectedShowName you could play with the size of the @Title items and make them taller than the 20 pixels (like 35-40?) so the text scrolls to a second line but @SubTitle, @Time would have to be removed/moved since they are currently on the second line.

    The @Title string displayed by XRecord is a concatenation of the title and subtitle as returned by Programme.getTitle() Programme.getSubTitle() which are in gbpvr code not xrecord code.

    As Gedanken suggests, you seem to have imported these shows in a way where the subtitle includes the title. Perhaps if the shows were imported with the subtitle only including the subtitle you would see what you want.

    Thanks Gedanken, one mystery solved I think. I use MPEGImport, presumably if I leave out show name I will just see it once, as the Folder name?

    Thanks to you too fla, I'll have a wee play around with that menu skin.

    Hi fla,

    Just wondering if you'd found a bit of time for the sort thing .. ?

    Cheers

    It's at the top of my list. Did the PgUp/PgDn thing first because it was only a couple lines of code. Good idea to refresh my memory though.

    I uploaded a new version. If you press the yellow button (Ctrl-Y) in the list of episodes for a given show in the ready or pending screens, it will toggle between date and filename sorting. It used to only have date sorting. The green (Ctrl-G) button reverses the sort order.

    The behavior of the Green and Yellow buttons in the list of shows (with the posters) should be unchanged.

    This is a beta version so please report any issues. Good luck...
