Custom File Renaming Pattern not working

Jan 15 at 5:14 PM

I'm using MCEBuddy 2.3 on a Windows 10 PC, and I'm having issues getting the Custom File Renaming Pattern feature to work.

I have my destination set to D:\Videos\TV\Recorded\%showname%\Season %season%\%showname% - S%season%##E%episode%## - %episodename% - %airyear%_%airmonth%_%airday% which I got almost directly from the 2.x documentation.

Instead of the expect results, everything is ending up in a folder named D:\Videos\TV\Recorded\%showname%\Season %season%\%showname% - S%season%##E%episode%## - %episodename% - %airyear%_%airmonth%_%airday%, with a file name such as The.Simpsons.S28E11.Pork.and.Burns.

I thought perhaps I needed to check the box for 'Enable custom file renaming' in the advanced settings, but even though I check that box and click 'OK', 'OK', it will not retain that setting for me.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong and how to fix it?

Thank you very much for your help!
