    Albums not sorting the right way

    I am on LMS 7.9, the latest build. Since using 7.9 my albums sort on artist name, this not what I want, I want it to sort on Album title. This always used toe be the case. If I check in the webinterface it sorts correctly but in all my players (radio, touch, android player) it aoerts on artist name.
    I can not find a way to manipulate this.
    Any ideas?

    Will this fix the problem on every player?

    Kind regards,

    I can not control my touch with the touchscreen anymore since the screen is broken and the app and controller both seem to lack this option. Now I have fixed it on the Radio all works well.

    So, thank you very much

    Album Title Sorting

    I have tagged my album titles to include an album sort number
    (this is so I can spot Live albums etc. in the list)

    I would have expected (as an example only)
    ...
    09 Album09
    10 Album10
    10a Live Album10a
    11 Album11
    ...
    etc.
    But when the order is displayed for this example, 10a precedes 10
    Is there a way to change the order to follow this ie 10 then 10a then 11?
    Sorry if this is obvious

    Albums not sorting the right way

    I am guessing, but the sorting algorithm may use textual rather than
    numerical sorting logic.

    Perhaps 10.1, 10.2 (or 10.01 and 10.02) rather than 10a, 10b will give you
    the results you want?

    Regards.

    Correct. And you shouldn't need to modify the name itself, but could
    generate the NAMESORT value instead.
