my goal is to be able to use the TV Shows pane with all the nice graphics and extra info provided by the scrapers, rather than the drab Video's list.
i currently use mythrename.pl to generate readable filenames for all my mythtv recordings. this filename can then have info such as the original air date, syndicated episode numbers and the episode name.
Fringe - Unleashed - (2009-04-14 @ 2101).mpg
from there i can run a separate job to search say http://epguides.com to lookup the syndicated episode id and the original air date and generate a xml nfo file that xbmc can use.
so i have:
Fringe - Unleashed - (2009-04-14 @ 2101).nfo
which contains a partial nfo:
in the same directory (tvshows/Fringe); i add that to my Video's sources, set the content to tv show and scraper to use thetvdb.com. do a manual scan, go to TV Shows... and nothing!
can anyone help? cheers,
