I have a Dune Smart D1 running the Zappiti jukebox, and a Netgear NeoTV-550. They are both end-of-life, although they are not that old.
On its own, the Dune does no sorting. But Zappiti allows the Dune to access your movies by "Categories", which is its version of genre. It is not a "live" sort, but a pre-built index created on your PC by Zappiti and then loaded for access on the Dune.
The NeoTV-550 is much better. It is a live sort that allows you to access movies by genre, director, actor, year or decade.
Sorry, but I can't answer for the newly-released players, as full BD menus is one of my requirements.
