Based on what I have found, it appears that the DLNA server on the MBLD is demonstrating the same sorting problems as the base twonky server found on the original MBLive. However, since the MBLD does not use Twonky, the fix for adding custom views does not apply. Does anyone know of any way to fix this or are there any possible software fixes that might enable a customizable order? To outline my particular situation, and provide my findings:
1 - all of my music is in mp3 format, with at least the Artist, Album, Title, and Track Number tags populated
2 - my music is within a public share and organized by artist, album, and with each individual song file named as ‘track number - title.mp3’ as in this example: \Music\Artist\Album\01 - song title.mp3
3 - based on the Album and Artist/Album views advertised by the MBLD DLNA server, the list of media is being provided alphabetically based on the ‘Title’ tag from the MP3, NOT based on the original file name
If anyone has any ideas, they would be greatly appreciated. I tried contacting WD support, but was told first that it is up to the client to tell the server how it wants the media organized when it makes its requests, and once I informed them that the PS3 does not appear to have this capability, I was directed here.
