This is more of a hit and run program, you select input/output folder and then it's done. It's lightweight and does what it's suppose to.
Not sure what you mean by tweaking code, but ya you "need" to edit the setup file there's no gui.
Yes, to quote a comment I made about SB earlier in the thread:

SortTV doesn't actually download anything, but can be used with any of the plethora of applications that does that. For example, it can be used with Vuze's built in subscriptions, or with torrent episode downloader (TED), or any of the downloaders and schedulers that others have mentioned in this thread. (You could even combine SortTV with Sick Beard, although that might be overkill.)
Once SortTV is setup you can just have any file transfer programs place new files in a directory SortTV sorts, and it will all happen automatically, the files will be moved/copied/symlinked and renamed into a very organised directory structure, images will be downloaded, and xbmc will be notified of the new files.
Development of SortTV has progressed by adding the features requested by its users. There is a lot of control available through the options to specify exactly how SortTV behaves. (Although, hopefully the default behaviour is perfect for most users.) Development of an xbmc front-end has started, which will make configuration easier.
Anyway, if you want lots of control over what happens to your files try out SortTV.
Regarding the front-end comment above: Development of the xbmc front-end seems to have stalled. I personally started working on a separate GUI interface written in C++/Qt, but it is still very incomplete, sitting in a separate development branch. It is low priority for me at the moment, but it might eventually get finished
Anyway, I encourage you to try SortTV out and see if it fits your needs.
