On Demand listings not a list any more? How do I get the lists back order by season and episode, not all episode 1s, then, 2s, etc...

How do I get my on demand listings back to an ordered list, ie: S1:E1 vs the icons that are in order by episode # only, ie: all episode 1s from each season, then all 2, 3, and so on. It makes watching a season in order very hard to do.

I Just switched to Direct & cannot understand the stupidity of how on demand episodes are listed.

Open your guide to channel 1000, then use the remote buttons to scroll through each On Demand channel (server).  Most have a very logical method of listing their series and the available episodes.

Unfortunately, some are really bad.  Encore 1535 is a prime example.  175 Gunsmoke episodes are listed by season episode number where it was once series episode number.  Instead of sorting four episode 3's by season, they are sorted by episode title without regard to season. You may have to open three of them to determine which one is in the season you want.  Fortunately the original air date is there, but it is not a sort key.  I complained directly to DTV when this illogical system first came out.
