Thanks for the quick reply! With respect to sorting by date, I'm not hoping for the ability for the program to be able to pick up the air date from the meta file or anything more complex like that, but rather to not re-order the files alphabetically when viewed within Streambaby (if it just stays in the order it is in the native directory that would be perfect). Maybe that isn't as complicated as some of the alternatives? Ironically for me, the alphabetization is only an issue when the meta data is included in the stream because the files are numbered and therefore sorted in the right order on my system. Thank you again and your time, work, and effort are sincerely appreciated.
