Homesharing from my Mac to the iPhone4 and iPad is a great thing I long was waiting for it. It works so far with my rather big library - but strangely enough the movies and music etc. is sorted in a very strange way: it starts with letters S-T followed by the normal order of ABC. Seems to be a bug in iOS 4.3 or itunes 10.2.1. Anyone else has this problem? Any help or advice?

    Hi. The sort order is supposed to be A-Z, followed by 0-9 and other symbols. Also any leading article, ("A", "An" or "The" in English) is normally ignored for sorting. I recall a time where my iPod "forgot" these rules and used a plain ASCII sort. I assume there is some sort of configuration file on the iPod that encodes both the general and localized article rules which has become corrupt in your case. Try restoring the device. If that doesn't work, reinstall/repair iTunes and then try restoring the device again.

    Various PCs, Windows XP Pro, iPhone3GS iOS4.3.1, 160Gb 1.1.2/2.0.4, 30Gb 1.3, Nano 1.4 - iTunes
