I had this setup and after the next upgrade I'll set the columns up again. Everything was sorting great in all areas except collections created by tags. Those titles sorted by the original title.

These special Collections are accessed in the normal way, via Collections on the Sony main menu. The %char at the beginning of each special label ensures that they are listed on page 1 of the Collections list.
Thanks, this was the info I was looking for. Just to get everything under collections.
