Recordings Episode Sort Problem

H3wS - There is a problem with the sort feature for shows with more than 1 episode, i.e., they are in a folder under the show title. Program sorting algorithm is wrong.

The date sort works but when I switch (TV Show Episodes Options - Sort) to 'Season, Episode' it does not work properly. I did not have that problem with the HwS. I get multiple seasons with different episodes under each season heading, the episodes are not repeated. Example for one show: Season 6, Season 5, Season 6, Season 5, Season 6, Season 5. It looks like the primary sort is the record date, then sorting by season, thus giving multiple seasons when all episodes should be under their respective season.

Is this with one or two particular shows, or every single show? Can you also let me know the software version on your Hopper?

It has happened only with 'Suits' so far... I transferred shows from EHD to H3wS. I'm testing to see if it happens with any other shows or if the issue occurred with separate transfers from different seasons. I am transferring in batches since my recent upgrade to the H3wS. When I viewed the show on the EHD, before transfer, the seasons displayed normally.

I also have a sort problem with the season 8 episodes of 'Castle'.

I now also have a sort problem with 'Madam Secretary' after transferring in different batches.

This time the seasons are sequential, but the episodes under one of the seasons will not sort sequentially. I did not transfer them sequentially to test the issue. It appears that they sorted in the order I transferred them. This is how season 3 sorted: 23-11, 5, 10, 4, 9, 3, 8, 2, 7, 1, then 6 -1... I do have some recorded duplicates.
