Classic example: All of the Bourne movies, in Plex I have the ‘Sort Title’ set to Bourne 1, Bourne 2, etc… This way in Plex they show correctly in order of year produced BUT Infuse ignores ‘Sort Title’ thus the last movie titled Jason Bourne is displayed with the J’s. Many other examples of this in our 700 movie collection.
Bottom line Infuse 6 DOES NOT FOLLOW Plex “Sort Title”. Please, please get this corrected.
Just checked that out. Yup that does work. Got to say though its a bunch of work, you have to exit out to get back to the library, select library, key down to collections then select it. The unfortunate aspect is that this doesn’t deal with groupings like ‘chic flix’. Infuse 6 would be so much easier if it would just support showing folders as Plex Server does or like you get if using SMB.
I know it’s not Plexcollections but you can also create a favorite for the library “Collections” so it’s on the home screen and you wouldn’t have to drill down in the library. Instructions are here Managing Favorites & Lists – Firecore
Yes, I’ve played with it. Bottom line I would have to spend a bunch of time in Plex dealing with 700+ movies in order to make this a viable solution. The simple solution is to have Infuse 6 support showing folders as thumbs at the top of the grid just like it does if using SMB. SMB does have some limitations.
Not sure if this is a SMB quirk or possibly what I’ve done (incorrectly?) but if I use SMB not all of the movies show up in order, ergo my first & second comments. For example, the entire Bourne series shows up correctly (alphabetically in the B’s) using Infuse & Plex, but with SMB the last movie ‘Jason Bourne’ is found down in the ‘J’ section. There are others like this as well when using SMB.
