Sorry for the change, I guess I simply don't understand why (sans
extensions) they sort they way they do .
Eventually, something like Michael T. Dean's patch will probably be done.

Is there anything I can do to help? I'm a developer by trade, but haven't
delved very far into Myth recently (once, back in .18 I think, I modified
the code so it would use xine (or mplayer) to play a VIDEO_TS directory
instead of the first VOB file it found because at that time I was ripping
DVD mirror copies to the drive and MythVideo couldn't handle that. My
solution worked but was by no means elegant and I never submitted it back
for consideration as a patch (because it made too many assumptions about the
way I wanted things).
I'm always happy to learn and contribute back to the community.
