Best thing to have is a field in the database for grouping, so Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, Alien Resurrection all have the group "Alien Quadrology" or whatever. You could then either decide to group movie sets or not in the main view. Maybe if they were already grouped then the sort order becomes less important.
TMDB stores sets of movies so its possible to automatically scrape these(i'm not sure if the API covers that yet but will find out).

Well that ruined my arvo - seemed too good to be true.
Actually, having the ability to list something in the nfo and display it as something else through the miracle of XBMC would be a good way to get custom sorts. Guess we'll have to wait and see what JM comes up with.
Movie Sets in XBMC's video library via NFO? - Elvito - 2009-06-14 11:22
I was just wondering if XBMC supports grouping movies together in Sets.
Considering for example the starwars series, could i have one entry in my library, and when i select that i see a "submenu" with the six movies in them.
I've searched around a bit, but couldn't find anything.
Implement "box sets" in XBMC? - smeehrrr - 2009-06-22 22:05
Quick question: I have all of my DVDs ripped as IFO/VOBs. In some cases, these DVDs are part of a box set, or a multi-disc title. In XBMC, how do I go about modelling that? At first glance it looks like stacking is sort of similar to what I want, but there's mention that stacking doesn't work with DVDs. Is there any way to model this kind of hierarchy of content in the video database?
Movie Rows, Disc Sets, Box Sets and other grouping of movie series collection? - Paradise - 2009-06-25 16:09
i use XBMP/XPMC since the first days it came out on my xbox, but never used the libary.
So i tought its time to give it a chance and as now in HD times i change my xbox to a HTPC. I have all my stuff on a Windows Home Server and it works great.
I know i'm new here and other people are here since years. Let me say it as it is - if your new you have to say nothing. Espacily in the open source section its like - "you don't have to use it" or "learn programming and make your own stuff". If its like that - please developer life your software an your hdd and don't put it in the web to get something for your ego.
I do websites and i saw this in so many communitys. Thats why i turned my back to Joomla, Drupal and all this stuff. A community is for helping and getting things better and no for telling other people "I know how to do it".
Ok, that was just generally stuff. XBMC is great and i honor all developers.
But since days i try to figure out how to get my collection into the libary and i stuck.
Lets take the "James Bond Ultimate Edition Monster-Case". That means: 1 BoxSet, 20 DiscSets with 2 DVDs, 40 DVDs.
Or "Jurassic Park - The Ultimate Collection". One DiscSet with 4 DVDs
Or "The Arthur Askey Collection". 1 BoxSet, 6 Discs.
A BoxSet is a box with more than 2 DVD cases.
A DiscSet is 1 DVD case with more than 1 Disc.
I think we need something (or i'm the only one?) for BoxSets and DiscSets.
So if you hit a BoxSet you see all the DVD cases that are in there.
If you hit a DiscSet a popup is showing and asking you if you wanne play Disc1 or Disc2 or Disc3.
In the .nfo we need an option to say don't show Disc3 in the Movie-Libary cause its a speacial feature disc. But something that shows as in Disc1 and Disc2 this disc is part of "James Bond Ultimate Edition Monster-Case".
So it would be nice to have at the HomeScreen "BoxSets".
Another great thing would be, lets call it, MovieRows. So for James Bond, Jurassic Park, Die Hard and so on.
And one more point would be "Categories". So for Sports, Documentary, Demo Discs. I don't wannt do show up "THX Ultimate Demo Disc" or "Ronnie Coleman - The Cost of Redemption" or "IMAX - Coral Reef Adventure" under Movies.
Ok, enough for now. I hope my english is not to bad and nobody gets me wrong. And i hope i'm not the only one who needs this stuff. If you need something how i imagine how to sort the films, i make a map (picture).
Hopefully somebody listens to a community-newbie.
Stacking Movie Series - Library Mode - Kingsley - 2009-07-14 21:50
I have done a search but can't find any infomation on this.
Im sure i've read somewhere in the past about this but can't find it again.
Is it at all possible to stack Movies in library mode, so that for example you would have all your movie thumbs, and then get to say star wars, and you would have all the star wars films available once you pressed on star wars?
Possible or not?

Nope - this has been covered several times, so search if you wish to read further.
It's something that will be available once I get off my arse and start coding up stuff for the new library.
Grouping box set movies - xbmcmonkey - 2009-07-21 08:47
Is there a way to group box set movies (i.e. Spiderman -> Spiderman 1, Spiderman 2, Spiderman 3)?
It would be great if a box set can show as one icon/thumb in the library and when you click on it you get the listing of the movies within it.

Movie 'Box-Set' Support in Video Library? - KingPsycho - 2009-07-26 18:30
I think it would be cool to see the ability to create box sets in the library and layer them so if there is no box set just the movie cover and fanart will display but if there is you can choose a top layer background art and set image. I think the skinners and a few other people might run with the idea and create poster images for box sets maybe by grabbing dvd cover sides or actual pictures of box sets on thier sides. It shouldnt be too tough as I assume its some pretty close to what the TV library already uses. Just a thought.
