desperate help needed with plugboards etc!

hello,

today i finally got the 650 and right away i disliked the way it cannot sort out the books by:

genre(tag), author, series, series number, titel
fantasy, Tolkien, J.R.R., Lord of the Rings, 1, Fellowship of the ring



so i googled, then read alot of posts about it:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=126313
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=118563
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=111736
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...3&postcount=32

but i just can't wrap my head around it! i know some basic scripting but for some reason i cannot figure this out!!! probably because it's 3am now.


do you guys know of a step by step guide or could you tell me step by step what to change and in short how i can customize it!

i really liked this lay-out http://www.mobileread.com/forums/att...3&d=1292620551 except for the series first letters in front of the title

i try to add a template in plugboards e.g. device_db:PRS505 = ([{author_sort}] -> authors), ([{series:lookup(\s,#serinit,series)}{series_index:> 2s|| - }{title}] -> title), ([{series}{series_index:0>2s| | - }{title}] -> title_sort)

but i get this error...

calibre, version 0.8.8
ERROR: : The PRS505 device does not support the device_db format.

Better asked in calibre sub-forum rather than Sony as your query is program specific not Sony specific... you'll find more knowledgable calibre users there including the program creator on occasion.
