Global Changes to Sort by Date or Alphabetical Ordering
In the newest 1.5 update, when I sort a folder from Alphabetical (default) to Chronological, it changes all folders.
This makes no sense! Who listens to music tracks on an album based on date uploaded? Who watches a TV season in order of download date?
For my local folder that contains my most recent downloads, that is a folder where I want the most recent files at the top.
For my local folder with my TV archive, I want it alphabetical.
It is insane to think this is somehow an improvement to the UI. It is just another example of blatant disregard for us local file users of the Box.
Why anyone would want a Season 1 of a series to sort by date downloaded, over alphabetical ordering that is proper, is beyond me, and should be way below Boxee's standards.

You sort your season episodes alphabetically? I wasn't even aware that was possible. TV episodes are typically sorted by episode number, either increasing or decreasing.

If not using the Library features in Boxee, the WDTV Live is probably a better product alternative.
