Metadata / File renaming strategies?

Nov 22, 2016 at 3:44 AM
Hi all,

In my never ending quest to try to get Tivo to work as well as Media Center did, I keep bumping up against an issue: sometimes, MCEBuddy grabs part of the original filename and includes it in the encoded filename. For example:

The Rachel Maddow Show, MSNBC20161121.ts becomes RecordedTV\The Rachel Maddow Show 20161121\ s e - --.mkv

I need the airdate for the recording name because Tivo doesn't seem to have a season or episode number for those shows (same for PBS NewsHour). Any suggestions for a better approach?

FEATURE REQUEST: Show what the renamed file and path will be in the GUI

Thanks for all that you do!

Alternatively, is it possible to add some special character string that lets MCEBuddy to ignore / not include everything after that character combination?
