I recently restored all of musicbee files (including audio files) to a new computer and my podcast now episode are displaying in a strange order. This is happening to multiple subscriptions. It looks like there's multiple date-time formats being used for some reason. I tried changing my short date format in my windows settings, deleting a few episodes and re-downloading them but that hasn't fixed it (isn't really a usable solution to re-download all my podcasts again).
.
All of those episodes pictured are files restored from my old computer so I don't know why they would have a different date format from each other. Is there a way to mass-unify the date format on these files? Or make it sort them via the actual order they were released...?

This is probably not the answer you're looking for, but it looks like the episode number is part of the title. If so, sort by  the title and the episodes should be in the order in which they were released.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

I tried that, but clicking on the "Title" header doesn't sort them (clicking on "Episode Date" does try to sort them, but they still come out in the wrong order)

I'm sorry to hear that. I have to admit I'm at a loss for an explanation. Perhaps someone will come along with an idea or suggestion.
