SageMC groups videos with the same title

In SageMC (but not in the default STV), "My Videos" in the folder view uses the metadata in my WMV files to determine the title, and then displays the videos by title. An example:

F:\Media\TV Shows\_Kids\Blues Clues\ contains the following files:
Blue's Clues - 1999-06-07 - What's That Sound.wmv
Blue's Clues - 2000-09-25 - Blue's Big Mystery.wmv
Blue's Clues - 2001-03-05 - Cafe Blue.wmv
Blue's Clues - 2001-03-19 - Environments.wmv
Blue's Clues - 2001-04-09 - Imagine Nation.wmv
Blue's Clues - 2001-11-19 - Something to Do Blue.wmv
Blue's Clues - 2001-12-17 - Let's Boogie.wmv
Blue's Clues - 2002-02-15 - Blue's Backyard Ballgame Bonanza.wmv

Each file is properly tagged, and the title is "Blue's Clues" and the subtitle is the episode name (this is required by the Zune to show up properly).

Because SageMC uses only the metadata title, though, only the first show appears in the folder list.

I need to use the folder list, because Genres puts every show together, and I don't want to re-tag my entire video library for Groups when the files are already tagged and organized properly. If there was a meta-data view that let me browse that way, that would be nirvana.

Is there any way to tell SageMC to use the Subtitle instead of the Title? Or some combination of the two?
