Movie Title Sort Order

I noticed today that movies sort by name that have a numeric title are sorted differently in the Web Client than they are sort in MBC.

 

The web client appears to sort strictly based on alpha orders with numeric sorting before alpha characters but the Classic client sorts the numeric first but based on the numeric value. You can see an example in the attached image.

 

All of the sort titles are correct and the theme does appear to have any impact on the sort. I tried ROC and Diamond

 

Is there a setting that I have missed in either of the clients?? I would like for the sort to be consistent.

I as just going to start a post about this.  Is this considered a bug in the server sort logic?

 

On the Server and in MBT, I am seeing 'The 40 Year Old Virgin' sorting before '9'.  That just ain't right.   :)

It looks at the first character (negating 'The'). 4 < 9

check your sort name in metadata, however i'll adjust sort name comparer so that it uses a natural sort algorithm

Yes that is exactly what it is doing.  Which isn't quite right - as the number is 40 not 4

Sort name is correct:

 

40 Year Old Virgin, The

9

 

Thanks for looking into.
