TV show sort order


I’m hoping someone can explain how to remove “the” from tv show sort order eg. The Addams Family, The Simpsons, The Waking Dead etc. I have metadata fetching “on” the sort order in settings as “Filename” and none of the file names or folder structures for these shows have “the” in them yet they are all showing under the letter “T”.

Thanks for any ideas!

Try Title

Thanks for the suggestion, just tried it but unfortunately it then mucks up the order of series movies (Star Wars, Indiana jones etc) so I need to have the sort by filename enabled.

I have title sort enabled and got around the movie series ordering problem by adding for example a “Empire Strikes Back.xml” next to the movie with all details the same as on but with the title changed to “Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back” so that it appears next to the other movies. A sample xml file can be found here
Metadata 101 – Firecore

I have issue with TV Shows sorting on all platforms, I’m not sure if just me.

Why I can’t sort by “Release Date”? I know there is sorting by release date, but it’s not working. @james
