Shows not being renamed anymore

Edited Jul 18, 2016 at 4:02 PM
Hello,

Running MCEBuddy 2.4.4 with Windows 7 Ultimate for a few months. Everything's been working well, but over the last couple of days it hasn't been converting shows properly one of the channels (Channel Five in the UK).
The shows themselves convert OK but they aren't renamed and sorted anymore. The files names are left the same as the original windows media centre file name. They're sorted into the correct show name folders but obviously not the correct season folder.
This is probably a problem with media centre listings but the metadata of the recorded and the converted files show the series and episode number correctly in the description. I've tried playing around with listings sources in windows media centre but no luck.
Any ideas as to how to extract the correct file name from the metadata description automatically. Failing that has anyone else had this problem and fixed it?

Your metadata is missing, no subtitle and no broadcast date time, no season no or episode. There's nothing to match the metadata from the internet.

Yeah I see that, but the series and episode numbers are at the end of the description. Also the show has the correct description. Is there any way to get mcebuddy to use that data to get the needed data to rename the file correctly?

That isn't standard format so it isn't recognizing it. I would suggest update your MCE region / provider.

The description isn't something that can be matched. See the thread on metadata for what all MCEBuddy needs to creates a match.

Use the today's 2.4.5 BETA build, it has added this functionality to parse season and episode info from the description.

Great! thank you, rboy1
