Output Folder getting year added - example "This Is Us (2016)"

I've tried all the settings I can find on creating file names (works great) but I can't seem to figure out how to stop MCEBuddy from adding the year to folder names.

You can see in the image, I already had folder named "This Is Us" but MCEBuddy won't write to that folder, it creates a new folder named "This Is Us (2016)"

How can I stop this? I don't want duplicate folders, I just want MCEBuddy to add the recorded file to the appropriate folder (ie..... C:\TV\This Is Us\Season 1\BlahblahblahS01E10.mp4)

I can't see to upload my image, so I'm posting the link to the image my google drive

It depends on your metadata, go through your conversion log to see what metadata is coming out of your video recording file, if for e.g. the Title contains "This is Us (2016)" then that's what it'll use.
You can also write a custom rename pattern to generate the folder/file names you want. See the documentation for more details.

The OP is probably aware of this, So I'm just throwing this out here for others that may see this. by adding the year it helps things find the RIGHT show. prolly doesn't matter for "this is us" but for "The Flash" if you don't put the year on the folder it finds the older series (not the currently airing one)
