Is this sorting done by the firefly backend or by the frontend client?
(I had the same sorting problem with Twonky ….)
Will the sorting be correct if I use iTunes as a frontend device? (Does iTunes evaluate the files in a different way so that it can produce different … and correct … sorting results … ?)
Yes, traditionally sorting is done by the client. Some devices don’t sort though (GiT, for example). It really should probably be done on the server for dumb clients like GiT, but I’ve just not done it yet.
As far as being listed twice, you can use sqlite to directly look at the database and see where the duplicate files are coming from. Probably there really *are* two copies of the files (backup copy, maybe?)
