Any news? This seems like a feature that lots of people would want...

I haven't had any luck on it, but I'm not very good with C++ so don't hold your breath on me...if anyone else is able to do this feel free.

Does anyone know if anything happened on this?

no, nothings been done for this, but it is something on my personal todo list. im curious if people use the "edit title" and for what? do you use it to correct movie titles? if so, thats the wrong way to do it. you should use video info -> refresh -> manual movie title entry. or is it used to customize the title for things like this?
if its to correct sorting "anomalies", the plan would be to add a new table to the database that links against the movie-id. this table would contain the custom sort title. it would never be displayed, only used for sorting decisions.
would something like this remove the need for the "edit title" function? the video library context menu is getting really large.

no. edit title is for when you think the original formatting sucks arse, e.g. sequels numbered using roman numbers but you want to use "normal" ones. do not remove, it is highly usable

Perhaps move it in to the new "video info that can edit bloody everything dialog"? I'll start discussing this with Jezz_X as it fits in quite nicely with the in-place edit control stuff.

spiff, that's what i've used it for, but i was curious what the general user populace was using it for. it's definately time for a nice editor dialog. the custom sort-only title would just be another field that can be edited.
On a related note, I've been considering changing the "Ignore The" sorting code. I find it a little awkward to see titles with "The" randomly in the listing. I was considering having the code that populates the items with the query results to change the label into this format: "Foo, The". this would mean we dont need any special sorting algorithms.
And Video Files view adheres to the "Ignore The" setting, but Music doesn't. This should be consistent.

Sure, that's an option that I wouldn't be adverse to. What do others think?
Oh, and I'd ignore it in filesview and just sort plain.

Thanks guys, maybe Æon Flux will actually appear at the beginning of the list and not the end when it has a sort title of Aeon Flux ;-)

I'm all for the ', The' option. I personally create my .NFO files from my DVD Profiler XML export using a C# app I've put together so I already have access to the sort title from there. Will there be a new .NFO file node to store this when we get to it? Any idea on timings?
