Thought I'd post this useful link just in case anyone is reading this thread and might find it useful, because it's on the same subject: http://lifehacker.com/5475649/set-up-a-f...ia-center.
Credit to the OP because that's a really annoying problem you have tackled and you've put a lot of work into it.
Personally I used the lifehacker article because I found it first ( I only found this thread as i was almost finished following lifehacker instructions).
NB I didn't use the Ember Media Manager to scrape (fanart, synopsis, dvd covers etc) because I couldn't get it installed. So I just followed the rest of the instructions and xbmc does my scraping. I only watch a tiny handful of tv series so i dont really need a dedicated sraper programme.

Thanks for the guide. I've been looking to add email notifications to my set up for a while!
Are you still using the same Python Script for parsing the file name for your TV Shows?
I've made a small update which removes the full stops from the file name and replaces it with a space. I find this is makes the email notification a bit tidier.

Thanks ijoshea. I'll try that out.
I'm still using the same setup and I love it. I just wish lifehacker would update their belvedere app more frequently. For the most part everything works great but when I do run into a hiccup it is due to issues in belvedere. Pretty buggy guy.
I'm running with Android now on my Galaxy Note 2 (Love this phone) and there are a couple apps that work great with everything.
1. Yaste Remote - great XBMC remote and widget. I get a call and my movie pauses. Notifications can even pop up in XBMC.
2. Remote Launcher - use it to launch any program on my HTPC from my phone, including XBMC. Can link it with tasker and have your HTPC wake up and launch XBMC when you walk in the door of your home. Too cool.
