That particular change ( e965e4bab ) required a protocol version change, 
so it can't go into the -fixes branch.  It /might/ be possible to 
backport an earlier version of the change (that simply restored old 
functionality--whereas e965e4bab added new functionality) that would 
also fix the problem ( https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/commit/8992b86d8 
), but since it also contains a binary version change, I probably won't 
be able to do so unless/until we do a 0.24.1 release.  :(

Another possibility may be to hard-code the sorting into 0.24-fixes, but 
it may slow down parts of MythTV (such as Watch Recordings--which does 
its own sorting, and, therefore, doesn't need a sorted list--though the 
slow down /should/ be minimal with a properly-configured MySQL server, 
and, really, no worse than it used to be in 0.23-fixes and below).  I'll 
have to discuss this with the other developers to get approval.

If anyone wants to try the hard-coded approach, patch is attached.
