Skip "Season x" in Virtual Directory if only 1 season is present

Description

Have Sapphire check to see if there is more than one season of a television show and if there is only one season found, the Sapphire virtual directory will skip the "Season" level of the virtual directory tree and instead drill down directly to the episode list.

This appliance makes AppleTV worthwhile. Thanks.

two patches attached.

Both will skip single directories, the second adds concatenation of the titles. I thought that might make things easier for the user to see what's going on, but to be honest it gets lost if the title is too long. You end up with things like "Greys Anatomy, Sea...", which is no use. Still, I'll leave the choice to you guys.

You should know that with the metadata backend redesign, if you enter a TV virtual directory, it displays the seasons normally, but then immediately below them it then proceeds to list files. So, in the case of a single season, the single season dir is listed at the top of the list and all the files within that season are below it.

The patch to the browser should restrain itself either to the TV virtual directory, or check to make sure such a dir does not also contain files. For example, I commonly have movie directories where I place the subtitles in a Subs dir. This means that if I navigate to a file manually, most of my movies cannot be accessed, since they have a single subdir in the same dir as the movie itself. Also name should not get a release/retain since it isn't retained in the first place.

gbooker. I'm confused. When you say closed in favor of 'above mentioned method' do you mean your comment dated 5/27/08? If so how do I make the display as you've described? I enter the virt. dir. of a television show with a single season. You comment suggests it should show "Season 'x'" on top but then it should 'proceed to list files.' I have never seen that functionality nor can I find it mentioned in the documentation or a setting for Sapphire itself (unless I need to turn off 'Fast Directory Switching') Can you explain further?

Thanks

Yes

I also said this in the same comment.

You should know that with the metadata backend redesign...

If you browsed the source, you could see quite clearly that there is a branch of the code, and it hasn't been released yet.

As always, thank you for your work on Sapphire as well as your patience and grace with your users.

Looking forward to next release.
