On the conversion GUI If I set Show Type to Movies. Shouldn't it just select the Movies shows to process?. I Tried it and it processes all the Shows not just Movies. This is using SageTv. I am asking this because the way the GUI is setup it is under filters.

zip and post a link to the log file. Are you forcing the show type to movies or filtering by shotwtype movies.

You are forcing ALL shows to type movies, so it's processing them all.

I think you're confusing the way it works and your logic is incorrect. Forcing type to movies it to correct the metadata if it's incorrect. Where as filtering by movies is what you're really looking for.

Turn off forcing show type to movies and it'll work fine. Why are forcing show type to movies anyway?

That did it. It might have been set that way from prior testing it is corrected the way you stated and it works. Once again thank you.
