The thing the regex looks for is the season/episode numbers in the filename. The rest of the name doesn't make a difference.

foo is a placeholder.
as you can see none of the patterns match your filenames

I could try something up, if you are interested (and also provided I do understand how it is supposed to work )

Can someone help me out? I've tried multiple regexp strings and can't seem to get mine to work.
My TV shows are all in //UNIMATRIX/Tv/ they are all in a directory by show name (e.g. Smallville, Simpsons, etc) with the naming scheme of S##E##.avi
XMBC sees the show titles fine, but it can't find the actual video files in library mode (I can browse to them ust fine.)

Oh, almost forgot. Each series is also broken down another directory by season number. An example of a complete path is:
Am I doing something wrong with regexp? - legwind - 2007-11-09 07:29
Apart from probably posting when I should have been able to figure it out myself, I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong.
My HTPC has TV shows stored in the following format:
\TVShow\Season xx\01 - EpisodeName.avi
And I can't seem to get a regular expression that works properly.
I've followed the instructions on wiki as closely as I can, but I'm not the brightest match in the box.
Can anyone help?
