does xbmc has a sort title as well as a title, im still getting used it - but on my HTPC i have them, and have the sort title with a numeric value - eg 'Indiana Jones 4', but the title is 'Indiana Jones and the kingdom of the crystal skull'
When i view the movies list it places them all together - works for most - but not for things like: el mariachie, desperado, and once upon a time in mexico - really cant figure out a way of doing this unless there was a 'linked to' type tag in the nfo, where you can view all movies that are linked to the each other.

My current work-around is to place all "sets" in their own sub-directory. For example my Bond movies (in single file containers, .iso, .m4v) are in "Action/Bond". I use a script to make sure the directory names are added to the .nfo file as genres, i.e., 'Action' and 'Bond'.
Then in Library mode, genre, under 'Bond' I view by year.
This seems to get the job done with just a little pollution of the genres.
That said, having a <sortorder> tag would be excellent so that all the Bonds would be grouped in other genres such as 'Action'.
Now if I were to put on my wishing cap, I'd wish for adding hierarchical display of genres. For example:
Bond genre's are: 'Action', 'Bond'
LOTR genre's are: 'Action', 'Fantasy'
Top Gun genre is: 'Action'
DnD genre is: 'Fantasy'
Then in the UI I could navigate like:

Or for library mode use mixed URL/XML nfo files.

My household has different language speaking members! The reason I did not use the library is because there is no way to classify my movies under LANGUAGE!
I would welcome LANGUAGE as the top level hierarchy!
------- action (movie1, movie2,..movien)
------- comedy (movie1, movie2,..movien)
When I search, I should be able to search on say FRENCH->Comedy OR ENGLISH->action et all
Possible to set sort-titles in .nfo files? - babyface - 2009-04-01 14:02
Not sure if this is an Aeon or an xbmc question, but is it possible to set a sort-title in .nfo files? For example, I want to have all my James Bond movies show up next to each other when browsing the movie library, but I want the titles to still show up as "Casino Royale", "Dr. No", etc., not "James Bond: Casino Royale" or something like that.
Series Grouping (Revisited) - indy5 - 2009-05-08 20:28
I know this topic has been brought up before, and if this belongs in a generic XBMC feature discussion forum, please have it moved.
Has there been any progress with series grouping (Star Wars, LOTR, etc, displaying as a single item in library view)?
The old thread is pretty dead and I was wondering if this were something we could overcome with an Aeon mod of some kind, instead of changing the xbmc code itself.

I agree with paul, but I have also wanted this feature for awhile. Is there a trac request submitted? I pretty much have all the series mentioned in the link and would love to see them together without having to edit the name.

Starting a new thread, KNOWING there is another will get you nowhere.
If an existing dev was interested enough to prioritize this feature, it would probably be implemented already. (I would love it for sure).
Of course any code contribution towards this goal will be favorably considered.
