yeah, that is entirely possible. if you look at the values I listed, they are all origonal air date, I removed the worthless recording dates. how do I name my files for an origonal air date? I tried looking at regex but it's like greek.

I am pretty sure its just american date format you insert in. But if your going to the effort of looking up an airdate you might as well add season and ep which is far more reliable with better coverage.
the vast majority of tvdb has no air dates entered

hopefully this is my last post (sorry for spamming), I gave up and did an episode of big bang (was able to do it from the dvd folder so that was nice, much faster). But still not getting what I want:
Here is my tvshow.nfo (which is inside of the root folder for the show)
I have your regex set up now, and my naming scheme is
TVSHOWS/SHOW/Season/BigBangTheory - 2 x 19
TVSHOWS is being scanned, the nfo file is inside of each SHOW folder.
Also, I have verified the URL for episode guide and it does have the zip I am looking for. I got the code from the import/export portion of the wiki. Thanks!

turns out there's a bug, I'm talking to one of the developers in IRC trying to pinpoint it
- xexe - 2009-12-01 11:06
You know thats an XML nfo and you only need one line in a non XML nfo namely the tvdb show link. your just making it complicated for youself as per the OP

There is a problem with the EXCLUDE pattern matching. It turns out it is case sensitive which i "thought" explained the problem but so far no luck making it work.
More testing will be done.
Also I found another 2,343 episodes that dont match that likely can be made to match reliably. Expect an update soon.

Something is very wrong here. I have manually confirmed that alot of these eps that didnt match should match with the exiting REGEX. It is as if XBMC isnt loading some of the REGEX.
Can anyone confirm similar at their end?

Just as a follow-up to something I posted earlier in here...
To get MythTV recordings in the library, use MythSExx. It's a program I created to be run as a user job after each show for the purpose of renaming episodes recorded by MythTV
Show Name.SxxExx (Episode Title).ext
I hope it helps someone looking for information on that here.
It works well!

Nice follow up. :0
I have managed to fid the problem with the current REGEX. Essentially XBMC mis captures a load of files and since this regex appends to the native XBMC regex it would never work.
Changing most to prepend makes it work again.
However the exclude REGEX still doesnt work and I am at a complete loss why and how to check any further. Waiting for a dev in IRC to assist.
A complete new as.xml will be posted once I am happy.

OK an update.
The source of the exclude REGEX issues has been traced thanks to some real time support by Vdrfan. Essentially the logic of how the REGEX is applied is not what is implied in the wiki (or it can be read more than one way).
Some code changes are happening and once they make it into the SVN (hopefully) I will post a new set with some nice new additions.
