You can sort alphabetically now, A-Z or Z-A.
I don't like metro on a desktop, particularly a dual screen workstation designed for multitasking. However it works better designed in the "10 inch ui" tablet touch form or the "10 foot ui" leanback (I can read and navigate from my sofa) design perspective.
More so the sense of context it conveys when smooth scrolling, navigating into and out of screens. Through graphic motion and animation, the system creates a sense of context and depth, which completes the experience.
Applying this to folders, selecting a folder and seeing the contents "slide out" from underneath it (similar to an iphone / ipad like screen animation) would convey a sense of belonging... ie) these items came from ... descended out of this folder.
I think it would just be nice to be able to select which DVR's list to display, not just Local or All. My son's DVR is constantly recording his shows so they are always at the top....it would be nice to unselect his DVR from the lists in our bedroom and my office but leave them in the living room, his playroom and his bedroom.
Been asking for this since day one.
My introduction to Chaos Theory and to Edward Lorenz who discover the Butterfly Effect.
Dish can do it on their VIP series, I am not sure about their Hopper. You can create as many folders as you wish and you can name them whatever you want. Once you record something you can move the recording to any of the folders you want. This is one of the features I am missing the most since I switched from Dish to Directv.
Surprise Dish doesn't point that out in their ads then.
This isn't a new feature for Dish, it has been around for many years. I didn't have the Hopper when I left Dish but I am almost sure that it has this feature as well. I still cannot understand why Directv doesn’t have this feature and they make you scroll through all your recordings to find something.
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.
I can see it now: Advanced Sorting Fee $5.99, with a 2.00 credit for 3 months for new customers.
Would really like to be able to sort my recordings in any order. It can be done in the series manager.
You mean you want to move shows up and down in your list? To be specific, that is not "sorting." That is ordering. Just making it clear because if you ask for sorting, people are going to think "alphabetical" or "date" or "viewed status" when they hear sorting.
Sorry, I meant sorting as in the series manager. Then you could place any recording in any order. You could group your common recordings together such as movies or sports. To me, it would be easier to find. What do you think?
They never have ignored "The" even after we've been requesting that for years now.
Like he said though, that's not sorting, that's ordering.
I stand corrected.....Ordering.
Well we could have ordering of a sort if they'd let us create folders. I see no point in it for an entire list, alphabetical and newest (or their reverses) should be plenty if we'd also have folders and proper filtering capabilities.
Three years?? Wow. Sometimes you have to wonder if they even use their own products because there's really no other explanation for a basic thing like this.
Far more than just 3 years, more like 7.
I guess I would use it to put some important stuff on the top but I don't usually have much on my dvr at any time so I don't have trouble keeping track.
