- When sorting recordings by name, folders are now always at the top of

I installed 1.7.39 last night and the new sorting is what bugs me
most. Would it be possible to introduce an option for the sorting
order under settings in the menu? I prefer the sorting the way it was,
because with the new method, a folder and a recording with the same
name are not next to each
other anymore. If you take the burn plugin e.g. I think it is rater
painful if you try to archive those "scattered" recordings.

OK, I'll add a parameter to setup.conf. I've already suggested this here


However, this won't show up in the Setup menu of version 2.0.0, because
it's too late for
introducing another i18n text (most of the *.po files are already


Hi Klaus,
is it really necessary to make this sorting stuff configurable? Is it not better just to 
stick to "0" for toggeling though all these different Sort Algorithms (date 
up/down, lexicalic up/down, lexicalic filemanager style up/down,...). Sometimes, when I 
search for an recording (a 8TByte Raid could
held a lot of recordings) it could also be helpfull to have a list only with all 
recordings without directories (only with the title base dir of this recording), also 
again with up down. I think its more important to have a config possibility for the 
columns to show ( yes I like "extrec"-Plugin also
for the renaming facility). And the more people you ask, the more strange sort 
wishes you will get...

And that's probably why it's best to not even begin to ask ;-).

I want to keep things simple. There are two basic ways of sorting, that's "by name" and 
"by time".
There's no need for an explicit "up/down", because with a single keypress you 
can go to the
end of the list (provided you have set "Setup/OSD/Scroll wraps" to "yes").

Whether folders are sorted alphabetically within the recordings, or always 
appear at
the top of the list, is a more general setting, which I don't think people will 
to set differently for each directory.

I'll see about implementing a list of all recordings after version 2.0.
