Default IPAD App All Movies View

I'm sure there is a simple answer to this, but when you select the Movie Cover art view from the IPAD app, how do you get it to reset to alphabetical?

Otherwise this view would not serve much purpose that I can see.

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks in advance for any wisdom.

I don't normally use the arrange alphabetically mode for covers. However, I tried changing the browser settings to this, checked my on screen display and then checked my iPad covers view. They all seem to work. As I scroll to the right all the titles are in alphabetical order. Now if I do a shuffle then it gets out of order again (or if I accidentally shake the iPad).

I normally use the "covers" view when I want to something similar to a movie I just watched and enjoyed. Otherwise I use the "collections" view.

Thanks John. I set my Browser settings to "arrange covers alphabetically by title" and this works fine for on screen, but seems to have no effect on the IPAD screen. Its interesting that this impacted your IPAD screen and not mine. Maybe there is another setting I am missing. When I browse by Genre it also appears to be "shuffled" and not alphabetical on the "covers" screen.
It's like I need an "unshuffle" button, maybe it is intended to work the way you suggest,

Depending on what specifically you want to accomplish, there are may be two ways to deal with it:
1 - if you are looking for something specific, does the app have a list mode?
2 - just keep scrolling (down is probably fastest.) I was noticing the other day that shuffle only extends about ~10 or so titles to the sides and ~4 or 5 rows from the center mark, so if you just keep scrolling without giving it a chance to reset, then you will land in alphabetical mode. Not sure if this behavior is the same on the iPad app.
