    Is it possible to sort the "My VOD" list alphabetically? As my list is growing longer I would much rather have my recordings and folders appear alphabetically rather than chronologically. This is pretty easy on my Tivos.

    OK. Yes, "Menu" -> "List By ...." does provide lots of choices for sorting the My VOD List, including "A-Z". But the selection does not seem to stick. It will sort the list for the moment. But when I come back into the My VOD List later, it's back to sorting chronologically (most recently recorded at the top of the list).

    Am I missing something? Should this selection "stick"?

    No, right now it doesn't "stick"

    Is that how it works on the R15 DVR? Should I report this as a minor bug?

    Hmmm. Seems like a pointless feature then. I'll suggest it as an enhancement then. Once you have lots of recordings in your My VOD List, it seems much easier to find stuff if it's sorted alphabetically. And you shouldn't need to select that sort option every time you display My VOD List.

    I agree, the option should stick. It's very inconvenient to do it each time.

    The technical term for "it doesn't stick" is that it is currently non-persistent. ;)

    I really hope that they going to fix this. It's so annoying that I have to change the setting to A-Z all the times.
