Navigation Tree Help

Postby ht354 » Sat Jul 01, 2006 7:22 pm

I want to take better control of my library of music so that things are easier to find. I have 79,ooo mp3's spread over 600GB. Many of the tracks belong to albums with various artists, which inevitably make the menus and searching the Twonky menus very difficcult.

I would like to be able to choose from the list of Genres, then
I would like to choose from Artists broken down by groups of three letters such as ABC, or XYZ
The kicker is that if I choose "A", the next screen should allow you to further refine the choice of Artists by allowing you to choose from grouped lett such as "HIJKLMNOP" so that I could Choose Albert Collins, and then the next set of choises would be a list of "Albert Collins" albums.

I would like to turn this ""Genre/Artist,%GENRE,%ARTIST,%ALBUM" into something that is reflective off the following;

Genre->(3)Artist ->(8)Artist -> Album

So that it looks or acts like the following;
Acid Jazz
Contemporary . . .
[b]Choose "Blues"[/b]
ABC -> Choose "A" [A] - ABCDEFGH
[A] - HIJKLMNOP Choose ->"L"
Choose -> "Albert Collins"
CHoose Album "Kings and Queens"

I have a similar request, if anyone knows how to do this.

Santana, for example, plays with lots of artists. So, sorting by %ARTIST, "%ALBUM will split up his albums across multiple 'artists'.

I'd like to be able to set up a tree with ALBUMARTIST, so that I can look for SANTANA and play the entire album.

I used to be able to do this by going to folders, but sometimes various software that's 'helping' me will move things around on disk.

Better tree structure needed

Postby McDotter » Sun Jun 10, 2007 3:26 pm


I have 13000 titles in my archive and want to have a more detailed tree structure. I want to sort them first by first letter of the title, then by second, 3rd, ...:

D->select D
DE -> select DE
Destiny Child
Dead or Alive

Is this possible by now?
