Not sure if it's the plug-in or the Channels infrastructure, but I can't sort any of the content, either the list of netcasts or the episodes within each netcast.

TIA.

Well, if I remember correctly when I last looked it kinda worked like this:

  • Netcasts List
    Sortable only by Default(Name)/Name, the netcasts folders don't have a release date or runtime associated with them so those two sort types are ignored.
  • Episodes List
    Sortable by Default(Name), Name, Release Date, and Runtime.
    However, it is worth noting that for episodes lists the name and release date sort types produce the same order, since the episodes are already listed by names that correspond to their release order.
    Runtime, on the other hand does produce a sort order that is exactly by running length (shortest to longest).

For the Episodes List I made sure to wire up the ability to sort by both Name and Release Date so that this Channel is prepared for any future developments that may be made to the sorting/channel backends in the mb server.

 

But really, atm, yeah Netcasts Lists are effectively only sortable by Name, and Episode Lists are only sortable to the equivalent of Name & Runtime ;)

For what it's worth I am also experiencing issues with Twit. It works fine via the web client but is not retrieving the channel details on the Roku...or actually for me via the API to get the channels data.

 

This is the error shown when attempting to get the channel data via the API:

If the same I'd works on web client but not in api then I'd of thought it's an api issue

@Yogi - Ebr has fixed the problem TWiT was having in MBC as of the latest Dev release (176?) - Tested my end and seems to be fine now ;)
 
@im85288 - Are you still seeing this issue from the current stable server release onwards and latest stable TWiT release onwards? The issue with MBC has been resolved with some recent updates, has this helped your issue at all?

@flexage - I'm currently on the OSX server which is not quite up to date according to the version number...so it may be down to that. Once it get's updated I'll let you know if it's working for me. Cheers.
