I have some DVD collection (like Scooby-Doo Volumes) that aren't separated episodes then are not named with the SxxExx format. The folder in tv shows is obviously empty.
I don't want to rename files, what can I do to see them in folder?

Thanks,

EffE

You need to learn to use the video library, search the xbmc.org wiki

Ok. I think I've learned enough. I must rename every single file.
But dvds avi are a real pain: if is simple for dvd like "what's new Scooby-Doo" with no more than 4 episodes on every avi file how about the dvds of "Bernard" with more than 25 each one??
I can not rename file with a string long more than 42 chars because files are stored on Xbox hdd...I think the real solution is to get rid of tv show menu and use just file mode. More fast than a rename...

Or try this little utility EpNamer. It helps a lot as it renames the episodes for you.

Just installed it, looks SWEET! I wish I had known about this a few weeks ago when I ripped 6 seasons of a TV show and spent a long time renaming all the files. I'm going to copy and rename one of the seasons back to the original names and try this out Smile

Figured I'd post here as it is a high ranking search on google.
For MythTV on Mac or Linux, the best renamer is mythicalLibrarian It imports all recordings into XBMC with SxxExx or Movie standards.

Use mythicalLibrarian to make a library out of your MythTV files. Leave the recording to MythTV and use XBMC as your library.
