Sagex API intelligent sort question

I'm trying to obtain the last 10 media files that Sage has scanned to display to the user-interface in my Home Assistant front-end.

Thus far i'm using:
Code:
curl "http://localhost:8080/sagex/api?c=EvaluateExpression&1=Sort(GetMediaFiles(\"TVDB\"),false,\"Intelligent\")&size=10&encoder=json"
as a command_line sensor, which seems to get pretty close. but i get some odd results, especially if a file is currently recording. it seems to return some additional entries, that aren't real mediafile objects, and have weird AiringStartTime values, (ie: 11:70am).

So a couple of questions:

1) what does the "Intelligent" parameter of the Sort function actually do? i can't seem to find any info on that.
2) what could be causing the odd results when currently recording, and how might i filter those out of the result set?
3) any better ways to do this via sagex? i don't seem to find a "Date-Added" or any similar field in Sage...i'm currently settling on Airing:AiringStartTime.

I hate the Intelligent sorting myself but is the default in Sage, particularly in the web UI. Why would I want to see a Manual recording from 10 years ago before a Favorite recorded an hour ago? If I were you I would sort by Newest Recordings, to do this you may have to sort by Time and reverse the sort order.

The SageTV manual describes this in detail as:
Quote:
Intelligent Ė The list will be sorted by SageTVís recording priority. Manual recordings
are listed before Favorites, then Intelligent Recordings and live TV, followed by watched
shows, with shows marked as Donít Like listed last. Within each of those sections, the
newer recordings are listed first. The Reversed form of this style simply reverses the sort
order.

The SageTV manual describes this in detail as:
I agree with this.

I always set the recordings display as newest first and upcoming recordings as oldest first.

i filtered out the currently recording results, and left the "Intelligent" parm in. So far, it seems to be doing what i want. But i'll keep these replies mind should i see some weirdness, and use AiringStartTime or similar.

thanks.
