EmbyTV / SageTV questions

Dec 22, 2015 at 12:50 AM
With SageTV MCEBuddy will take the file and convert it. but it doesn't seem able to use SageTV's metadata - My MCEbuddy is setup to place the show in a \server\share\showname\Season folder and to name the show SxxExx-EpisodeName.

MCEBuddy places the show in a folder that includes SageTVs DB ID - so every episode winds up in it's own \server\share\SagetvDBID folder.

Is there someway to get MCEbuddy to organize SageTV files?

And in a related question, I know you've been working hard on the SiliconDust PVR solution, but I'm also looking into EmbyTV - is getting meta data from EmbyTV available or planned?

Any pointers on setting up MCEBuddy for SageTV and EmbyTV would be appreciated!

It should work fine.
1. Make sure you are using the latest version of MCEbuddy
2. Attach a link to your conversion log file or go through it to see what metadata it is extracting.

As for EMbyTV. Do you know what format and where the metadata is stored?

It's been quite a while but I wanted to let you know that 2.4 beta 4 seems to understand emby recordings. the naming convention of emby recordings is as follows:
Marvel's Agent Carter S02E05 The Atomic Job.mpg

So maybe it just grabs the info from the name of the file? in any event it works great.

That's correct. It can parse that format for the file name.
