Setup question just cant seem to get it right.

I have a "recorded tv" folder where mce puts my recorded tv shows and movies. Under the 'Recorded tv" folder I have two other folders "tagedTvShows" and "tagedMovies" I then have another program scan the "Recorded TV" folder and when it matches a tv show on tvdb it renames the file and moves it to the "tagedTvShows" folder. The program I use does not support recorded movies so all movies stay in the "Recorded TV" folder while Recorded TV shows get matched and moved. This is why I am trying out your program since it supports tv and movie recordings from MCE. I only want the tv show/ movie matched renamed and moved to the proper folder no transcode or commskipp. 

I don't keep TV Shows/Movies too long just till I watch them a couple of times then I delete them through the MCE tv library that is why I don't need folders for show/series/episode since MCE wont delete the folder when a show is deleted.

The reason I need the rename and move to folder feature is because I use PLEX to watch my shows when I'm traveling and if the show name does not have the format of                          "The Walking Dead - S03E04 - Killer Within" it does not organize correctly in the Plex library. I have tried your software along with the beta you recommended but cant seem to have it do what I need that is why I thought id describe what I am trying to do and see if you can tell me what settings I might need to mess with more. Or if its even possible yet with your software.

 

Thanks

You want to click Enable custom file renaming  and then below it enter something like:

%showname% - S%season%##E%episode%## - %episodename%

See Filename and Showname Pattern Matching in the advanced concepts portion of the documentation.
