File naming - same day multiple episodes

Dec 3, 2014 at 8:09 PM
I have trouble with file names when the same show plays 2 episodes on the same day. For example Dexter has a regular episode on 11-1-09 but also has a special on the same date. It keeps naming the episode to the special name. I am using the syntax Dexter_20091101.

I would use the time but I can't find it listed on thetvdb.com

As another example The Sopranos had back to back episodes on 3-4-01. I named them The Sopranos_20010304 and even tried entering the time but it always names them the same episode.

Thoughts?

That's an issue which unfortunately can't be resolved since MCEbuddy takes the first match, if you have 2 episodes on teh same day it can tell the difference by only looking at the title and date. The best that can be done is to select don't overwrite option in Expert Settings and it'll add a unique number to the end of the filename so it won't overwrite the first conversion.
