If you want all your media to properly show up in the library, follow thw wiki for folder and file naming and structure to ensure proper scraping.

Without knowing your current structure, we can only guess at answers.

You need

\TV Shows\Dexter\<random folders - XBMC doesn't care>\<episode files>

so is fine like this

\TV Shows\Dexter\Dexter.S01.2006.720p.BluRay.DTS.x264-DON\Dexter - S01E01.mkv

I just only have to rename the episodes? Dexter.S01EXX.720p.BluRay.DTS.x264-DON to Dexter - S01EXX.mkv

EDIT nevermind I already sorted out

thanks for nothing

Answer for those that come here looking for similar help:

Yes, all XBMC needs is the folder "Dexter" to get the tvshow name, then files somewhere under Dexter (they can be in folders or whatever, XBMC doesn't care) that contain something like s01e01 in the filename.

Thus, all that MaEdCo needed to do was add the Dexter folder and move their Dexter.s01.* folders inside that one. I presume this is what they did to fix it.

@MaEdCo: You're welcome.

Cheers,
Jonathan
