Sort Recordings by Date Oldest to Newest

Is there a way to sort recordings by Date but from Oldest to Newest? I record a bunch of movies every week and need to watch the older ones before the newer ones otherwise I'd never get to the older ones. Every time I go to watch my next movie I have to scroll all the way from the top to the bottom which is slow. Ideally, I could sort the oldest to be at the top.

There is no option to sort Oldest to Newest.

"By Date" sorts newest to oldest.

"By Title" sorts alphabetically.

Hey @mjlicht. Thanks for reaching out to us about your U-verse recordings, and we'll be happy to help you. 


We'd recommend checking out this information on how to view your recorded shows, where it shows steps on how to sort recordings by date: 

  1. Press the Menu button on your remote control, then select Recordings.
  2. Select Recordings by DateRecordings by TitleScheduled, or Series

There should be an option to sort the recordings by date when you select on Recordings by Date, or try pressing select on the By Date option to see if you're able to sort by date


You can also check here for information on how to manage your U-verse DVR shows


If you still don't see an option to sort from older to newest by doing these steps, then unfortunatly we don't believe the U-verse DVR recording have this option. We'd recommend searching for them By Title to see if it put the oldest movies up to the top. 


Let us know if this helps.
