Renaming shows for season and episode

Feb 6, 2015 at 10:55 PM
I record the young and the restless for the wife. Everyday once MCEBuddy runs I have to manually rename it to include the season and episode information for plex to see it. I uploaded the log file.

that's because your original WTV file is missing 2 pieces of information (even one will do both missing MCEBuddy can't do anything).

As you can see your subtitle (episode name) and original broadcast date is missing from your WTV file. Without either MCEbuddy can't tell which episode to match on the internet.

Thanks. Any idea where the information comes from? Is this something CBS includes with the broadcast?

It's windows EPG. Unfortunately you can't do much about that (at least I am not aware)

A work around would be to manually add that information to the file before MCEbuddy converts it but of course that would be a pain in the ass if it's happening all the time.
