I have a bunch of episodes that look like this
ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT - S01 EP09 - STORMING THE CASTLE 720P DD5.1 x264 MMI.mkv
. When I scan for new content it recognizes the folder name and grabs all the info for the show but can't find any episodes.

So I added the following to my advancedsettings.xml file in ~/.xmbc/userdata
<xml>
<tvshowmatching>
<regex>.*? - S([0-9]+) EP([0-9]+).*</regex>
</tvshowmatching>
</xml>

I tried that regex in a regex trainer and it seemed to capture the s# and e# just fine.

What am I missing?
Thanks

No <xml>

This is a problem with the Export/Import Library wiki page. All the examples are enclosed within an <xml> tag.
