KOReader filenames/sort from Calibre ODPS

I have a jailbroken kindle PW5 running KOReader and connected to Calibre via the ODPS but am having issues with how the files display inside my Calibre library on the device. When I go to the library from the ODPS they are currently sorted by book title and then also show the author. I would like them be sorted by author and display the book series and number followed by title. I have updated the save template in the sending books to device portion of Calibre to:

{author_sort}/{series} {series index} - {title}

but I dont think that is the correct spot to be making that adjustment because it doesnt seem to be working. Where can I change the sorting method in KOReader to make the sorting from my Calibre library make more sense?

I think that sorting in calibre is the only way. KO reader uses file names for sorting not metadata AFAIK.
Try {author_sort}/{series}{series_index) - {title}
You may also need to put this in the configure menu when you have your kindle attached - that worked for my Fire - and decide which folder to send your books to.
Hope it works for you - I’m no expert.

It may only show up if you connect via usb. Also, check that it’s not being ignored by calibre in the device settings. They live under preferences.
Good luck
