    I am using MiniDLNA as part of a TomatoUSB build on an Asus RT-N16.

    As I have a large collection of MP3's, it takes me a minute and a half to scroll from my first Artist to my last Artist.

    In Serviio, the artists are grouped by alphabet, so you find Dylan, Bob and Doors, The in the D folder. With one step up the tree, it makes it much easier to navigate large collections.

    Is this something that can be changed? I am open to getting into the source code and modifying if necessary (and relatively easy.)

    I would also find this useful.  Finding a song by an artist beginning with w, x, y, or z is a pretty bad experience on my Sony TV. 
    I appreciate that this is a problem with the client, as my 10 year old Netgear MP101 offers a far better experience, including searching, sorting on the fly, ability to browse while playing and much more (although it does freeze or reset itself far too often).
    This sort of option in minidlna would certainly make playing music on my TVs easier.

    Cheers,
    Craig
