    Season 3

    Spartacus - Blood and Sand (Season 1)
    Spartacus - Gods of the Arena (Special 1)

    MP-TVSeries config -> "General" -> enable "Sort Specials in Episode list (Aired Order only)"

    Sorry, the same Season is a Special.

    I want to sort in Season-List, not in Episode-List

    Why I can't give every Serie, every Season and every Episode a Sortname?

    We don't do any grouping of specials, we only sort in the episode view if enabled. It's an interesting idea, you're the first user to of requested it.

    I see what you mean now. For me it sorts "Specials" after "Seasons" because of the language. P goes after E, but before T in your case.

    One thing you can do though is rewrite the entire Spartacus show as a manual import, the same way users manually import sport shows that are not supported on TheTVdB. It is a lot of work (one time), but then you can re-arrange everything the way you want it. The show is ended, so it is easier to do then.

    Or wait for @ltfearme to get to your todo list item.

    That's something different, you can sort specials at the beginning or the end of the seasons list (there is a setting for that).

    There's an app for that :)

    Shows I really need to update things on this box, because I did not have that setting listed.

    Oh, I think my English is not good enough, but I think you understand all ...

    I hope in a future version it is possible to sort all entries ...

    Another Question: How can change the entries in the list?

    Season 1 --> Season 1 - Blood and Sand

    My Wishes:

    - More flexibility
    - Change the Name of a Season (you named it "Pretty Name"???) - the Name (Title), which you can see in MP
    - To give every Title (Series, Seasons) a Sorttitle (if I want to change it)

    New Wish:

    - To give every Title (Series, Seasons, Episodes) an internal Number to sort it on the right (or own wish) place.
    Some Specials are Prequels others are Sequels of a Serie. Others are Prequels or Sequels of a Season.

    If every Episode (better: every File) has a internal Number (which is editabel) everyone can sort every Season, Episode and Special to the place (of the List) if he wants.

    This is my biggest Wish. So I can sort, but Online-Information works pretty.

    I hope my English is good enough ...

    Thanks ...
