A bit off topic, but when sorting alphabetically why don't they ignore "The" in "The ABC Show"? Is there a way to ignore first words such as "The", "A", etc? This is pretty basic so it might be a setting that I missed.

 

They also do this when you use the iPhone app to view a channel and sort by show... some channels, the "T" listings are longer than all the rest of the letters combined.  You would really thing that ignoring "the" is a problem that has been solved by a million programmers on a million platforms.  This is one where you can really stand on the shoulders of giants, DirecTV.

 

 

 

I can see it now:  Advanced Sorting Fee $5.99, with a 2.00 credit for 3 months for new customers.

 

I swear to God I would pay it.  I would pay more than that in fact.  I love to go on HBO/Cinemax/Showtime/Starz recording binges and hoard movies on the DVR, but then it becomes really hard to find something to watch littered among the movies.

 

I think a "first world problems" meme would be appropriate here... I'm really feeling sorry for myself  :grin:
