Mythmusic Music Tree Question

Hello Linux forum,

I have a question concerning Mythmusic. I want Mythmusic to display the contents of my music folder exactly the way the actual original music folder is organized but the default configuration does not do that. In other words, if the actual original music folder consists of ten folders with music in each folder, I want Mythmusic to show it the same way when I go to play music so I can open whatever folder I want.

The way it is now, Mythmusic categorizes the music diffrently, which is the default settings which is in "Media Library, Utilities Setup, Setup, Media Settings, Music Settings, General Settings", and on the second page of this setup utility, the default value in the top field is "Splitartist- artist - album - title" which is what I need to change. I used to know what I need to type in that field for Mythmusic to give me what I want but I forgot what is was.

Does anybody know what goes in the field in question to give me what I want?

Thanks in advance,

I found the answer after more searching around. Typing the word "directory" in place of "splitartist-artist-album-title" gives me what I want.
