And that's probably why it's best to not even begin to ask ;-).

I want to keep things simple. There are two basic ways of sorting, that's "by name" and "by time".
There's no need for an explicit "up/down", because with a single keypress you can go to the
end of the list (provided you have set "Setup/OSD/Scroll wraps" to "yes").

Whether folders are sorted alphabetically within the recordings, or always appear at
the top of the list, is a more general setting, which I don't think people will want
to set differently for each directory.

I'll see about implementing a list of all recordings after version 2.0.
