Windows 7: Media Center defaulting to middle of folder

Media Center defaulting to middle of folder


Here's the issue:
I am watching Naruto on my TV, using Media Center and a remote control for the PC. So I have a lot of episodes in my folder. After each episode I press "Stop" and WMC asks what I want to do; I choose "delete" - so that every episode I have seen gets put in the trash can.
Now comes the issue: after deleting an episode; WMC puts me back in the middle of the folder, instead of going to the first number in the folder.

For example:
If I have Naruto episodes 1-99 in my folder. I finish watching Naruto ep. 1 and delete it. WMC goes automatically to the middle of the folder: Naruto ep. 49. Instead of going to Naruto ep. 2 (as expected).

Because of this I have to browse back out of the folder, then enter the folder again. -In order to quickly reach the first episode (ep 2 in the example above.) This is not a big issue, but it's very annoying.
One would think that WMC would default to the first in the list in the folder, but it doesn't.

Does anyone know how to fix this so that WMC defaults to the first, instead of going to the middle of the list?
Thanks in advance.
