thanks so much for your hard work.
I have lots of -TOPAZ releases and this was pissing me off to no end how it wouldn't scan in their episodes

Actually I am not having luck with -MEDiEVAL rips though, for example
Arrested.Development.S01E05.WS.DVDRip.XviD-MEDiEVAL has an archive name of med-ad105.rar and it's not picking it up (and i cant scan it into my library)
any chance of getting a solution for that?

I'm kinda new here but I've been messing about with XBMC for a while now. I have just installed the newest version and thought maybe it might sort my library problem for the tv show rips on my system but it hasn't and looking at the REGEX code I would doubt it would sort my naming system properly.
Basically the way I rename all my files (because I'm anal) is as follows:-
Tv Hard drive/tv show title/season 1/tv.show.-.101.-.episode.title.(DVD).avi/mkv/etc
"101" would mean season 1 episode 01 and then "2024" would be season 20 episode 24. It just doesn't seem to pick up the episode details at all. In fact this last pass with the REGEX file utilised has just given me files numbered 1-30 and nothing inside in Library view. I can and have been using the file view to go through my TV shows but it's not perfect. Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

@EvilMatt666. Do a debug log while refreshing a show. It'll tell you right off whether it's detecting them properly or not.
Don't just guess that things aren't working due to your file naming!

Can users confirm the the "Extras" removal regex is working for them. I have had reports that it works but i cannot get it working for myself which is curious.
If it does work can you confirm if you use the tvshow.nfo and movie.nfo URL tag method.

See file for some more details of whats changed. In essence this is a cleanup release.
In the interim I am now using pastebin for uploading this config file as it allows for a permanent home and direct download of the file (which is easier for new users). Eventually I may have a direct download permanent home, who knows

I am also looking for feedback about how this is working for you.

See file for some more details of whats changed. Small change to follow new config options.

Remember I am also looking for feedback. Without it I cannot know if this is working for you or if anyone is using it. Eventually i will lose interest otherwise

xexe Wrote:Version 1.1
I recently started using this version (didn't include all you personal preferences, but all the regex). Works like a charm. Maybe some of these should be pushed into the main branch further down the road...
Thanks a lot for writing it up!

Unfortunately these will likely never be included since they have the potential of false positives which XBMC cant include.
Glas to see it works for you and thanks for the feedback

xexe: is it possible to use regex to identify something like this:
The YYYY-MM-DD = recording date, the X is to identify parts of the same recording. This is the default for BeyondTV.
