    Default Issue with active playlist grouped by first letter

    I've noticed there seems to be an issue with an active playlist that is grouped by first letter

    Parsing several hundred files when opening my movie list takes a little while so I have a version grouped by first letter.

    However any more that is "The <insert movie name>" isn't appearing. So The Crow, The Fugitive etc do not appear. Not even in the T group.
    (There are configured with a sort title that removes THE so Crow and Fugitive)
    Terminator will show - but then its Terminator.

    I have a similar active playlist and the movies which start with The show up under the letter T. Do you have anything in your Smart Filter parameters for the Active Playlist ? Also in Display Titles what is the value for Movies (i.e. %TITLE%) ?


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    As an alternative to the grouping approach, you could provide a search or filter function that allows users to easily find movies starting with "The" or any other prefix.

    Something like "The Terminator" will show - presumably because its T.
    The Fugitive will not. It shows neither in F or T
    The smart filter is "File path starts with H:" (H is the drive the files are on).
    The Keyword hierarchy is Group by first letter.
    Display title under movies is %TITLE%

    Peter will likely have to weigh in here. Offhand I am not seeing anything wrong. Out of curiosity if you remove the smart filter file path parameter does The Fugitive then show up ?


    Thanks,

    If you turn off group by first letter do the files appear?

    If I remove that I get a dialog telling "Active playlist must specify at least one keyword in the search criteria"
    (Note: I also have a smart filter which is file path, contains, h:\)

    Please try using group by first word to see if the files appear.
