one more feature wish:
i just want to rename all files in one directory (including all subdirectories) without sorting them into new directories. is it possible to inclue a "sorting=no" option?
btw: the script is working great

hmm, would it be possible to change the notification sent to xbmc to only send successfull moves/symlink/copy's? as i symlink from a messy incomingdir i use place-symlink. And xbmc stutters like crazy while getting those notifications, so i would like to just get the successfull ones.
Also, i noticed the notifications have a limited length, so would be cool if they were shorted down to "showname S00E00"

That sounds like a handy straightforward feature. When I get a chance I will add that. If anyone wants to have a go at implementing it let me know.

Ok. I'll look into it when I get a chance. Again, let me know if anyone wants to volunteer to implement this.

Is there any reason why this wouldn't be able to be sorted?
I've added this to conf because I was getting an error (below) before
was getting this error before:

There are a few reasons for this.
If your configuration has
Then SortTV will try to look it up to see if it can find an episode with the show "[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden", and an episode titled "183v2 [480p]". This is not what you want. (Currently that does not ignore things in square brackets, but perhaps it should.) Is this S01E83? I am a human and even I am finding it hard to parse this text to figure out which episode it is...
You are correct to include those substitutions. However, you will also need to rename the file to a format SortTV understands. For example, "[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden s1e1.avi", or "Naruto Shippuuden - Homecoming.avi".

Notice a small problem with the latest version. During episode title look up it doesn't check for a tvdb ID sub so it fails on shows that require an ID number (ie, $#*! My Dad Says only works if you pass the ID to $tvdb-->GetEpisodeName()). I wrote this quick little patch to correct it on my media server, figure you can either use it or come up with a better solution.

Thanks, seems to be working now. Have to wait until next week and make sure my shows sort.
