    Hi there, how can I make use of the "forced sorting support for Panasonic devices" feature? I can't find it in the conf file. Thanks!

    Some Panasonic devices specify a sort order, and some don't. On devices that don't specify one, we will sort it. On devices that do specify a sort order, we will obey its command.

    However, with v1.1.2 there is now a new force_sort_criteria option which you can use to ignore the sort order sent by the player and instead use one that you specify.

    I might be missing something here... but I was looking for a more indepth explanation of this.

    # always force SortCriteria to this value, regardless of the SortCriteria passed by the client

    I would like to know what ALL the options are here... maybe give examples. Or please direct me to where the manuals are?

    Also, I only want this to apply to MUSIC (although it really doesn't even apply to videos and pictures, usually)...

    for example: when listening to the entire album "The Wall, by Pink Floyd," going in alphabetic order is CrAzY!! LOL

    FYI - The forced_sort_criteria did NOT work on my Samsung Supposedly-Smart TV. Anyone else have any luck?
