I have done several tests to confirm this behavior, but here is an overall summary:
Whether I create a new Movie or Television Collection or copy an existing one, at the very least when using custom labels in SmartRules to determine which programs will be in a Library Collection, the order on Android/Google TV is the same as on the web.
That means if I select ordering first (either manually or through a copy), when I add the programs they come in default order. Previously during the Apple Beta I was told that it did not matter the order shown in the web because the client would honor the sort settings. That is not true in the Android/Google TV clients.
When I change the ordering in the Web, that is reflected in Android/Google TV clients.
When a new program is added by SmartRules, it is just added to the end and ignores ordering. Only by manually updating the ordering (say, changing Forward to Reverse and then back again) does everything get in expected order and then reflect in the client.
Overall, whatever order the programs are showing in the web is the order the programs are showing on the Android clients, not the set ordering.
