Hi Guys, I've seen these threads covering requests and interest in switching to DVD order:


But nothing on ETA. Obviously if it's just an issue of order, then files can be renamed. But for LOTS of kids shows it's more complicated than that. Many kids shows have multiple shorter stories in each episode. TheTVDB's main episode lists often have these as individual entries. But regardless of where your files are from, there's almost no chance you've got each of them in individual files.

However, the DVD order on these shows lists them as 2.1, 2.2, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3,...etc. So the titles for each of those parts could be added together with a separator and that would give you an appropriate name for episode.

It would be REALLY nice for Infuse to support this option.

Examples of this type of show are below:

Powerpuff Girls - Regular List - http://thetvdb.com/?tab=seasonall&id=76200&lid=7
Powerpuff Girls - DVD Order - http://thetvdb.com/index.php?id=76200&lid=7&ta...

Dexter's Laboratory - Regular List - http://thetvdb.com/?tab=seasonall&id=77992&lid=7
Dexter's Laboratory - DVD Order - http://thetvdb.com/index.php?id=77992&lid=7&ta...

I'm bumping this as no one has replied and I'm curious about this feature as well. James?

Any update on this as I'd also really like this feature?

If you have Infuse connecting to a Plex share, the Plex server allows sorting by DVD order. Otherwise, not sure what you can do.

Local Server:
E5-2620v4 2.1Ghz
2x 250GB SSD (RAID1, OS drive)
2x 4TB HDD (RAID 1, media drive)

SSD Nodes (CentOS 7)
GSuite (media drive)

2015 Shield TV (16GB)
Apple TV 4K
Fire TV (2nd gen)

I've had occasional annoyances trying to rename DVD episodes to the broadcast order, but if Infuse suddenly changed from one to the other I'd tear my hair out having to fix it all again.

Giving this the old bumpity bump. I wouldn't recommend changing it as a default, keep as is, but perhaps when modifying metadata for a show, present another option to choose DVD or Air order. Have a few shows like this with screwed up orders because networks don't know how to broadcast in sequence!
