I have all of my TV shows auto downloading and processing correctly into XBMC. I noticed that it downloaded its first new episode of Regular Show, but it does not show in XBMC at all. The MKV file is sitting in the Shared NFS TV folder, though.

Here is a log of when it first started the download:

Here is the name of the file in my /Volume1/TV/Regular Show folder:

Regular.Show.S05E33.Gold.Watch.mkv


Here is the name of the folder in my Volume1/Downloads folder:

Regular.Show.S05E33.Gold.Watch.720p.HDTV.x264-W4F

Inside of this folder "used to be" 4 rar files as well as the NFO etc. Now that I look at it in my Downloads Folder, however, it shows just the NFO, MKV and SFV files. Does anyone know why it wouldnt be in my XBMC library? What is the best way to edit a single show to show up correctly in case this happens again?

So, I used a program called FileBot in windows to open the above Regular Show file. It then checks for the correct episode naming. In the TVDB and Sickrage it shows the correct filename as:

Regular Show - 5x30 - Gold Watch.mkv

After deleting the old "Regular.Show.S05E33.Gold.Watch.mkv" from my Synology DiskStation /Volume1/TV/Regular Show and uploading the new "Regular Show - 5x30 - Gold Watch.mkv", it worked. It now shows up correctly in the XBMC TV Library.


I currently have the file rename structure in sickbeard to: "Regular.Show.S05E33.Gold.Watch.mkv" type, and in XBMC, I have the scraper to search for things in TV folder with XEM. XEM is configured to search using TVRage. Doing this allowed me to get 79 episodes out of 69 TV Shows to show up in my XBMC. When using the "showname.SxxExx.epname" format and using TheTVDB as the scraper in XBMC, I only got 10 shows to show up in my TV Library.

Now, just to test things out, I went back into Sickbeard and changed it to "showname -SxxExx -epname" name format. In XBMC, I kept it as TVRage. I then deleted the XBMC library and reloaded it by adding a new file source under TV. At that point, I had roughly 30 TV episodes showing instead of 79. Regular Show was one them. So, my new question is, how in the world do I specify some setting to make it search for "showname -SxxExx -epname" format in the XBMC database scraper when "showname.SxxExx.epname" named files DO NOT find anything? eg: XBMC doesnt show "Regular.show.S01E01.ShowName.mkv" in a database and does not load it into the library. So, it then searches the Database for "Regular - show - S01E01 - ShowName.mkv" format. If it notices that there is a database entry matching the latter, it then changes the name of the file to match the corresponding "correct" file name structure in the database.

Also, if there isnt any way to automate things like im asking, can I specify in Sickbeard that "Regular Show" follows "xx - xxxx - xxx.mkv" file naming structure while the rest of them use "xx.xxxx.xx.mkv". It would suck as I would have to baby everything when I first add TV shows. Thus the automated add-on or script would be much easier. I am sick and may not be around for a long time so I am setting this up for my family. I will then show them how to use it and I dont want things to be overly complicated for them and have them go back to 140 dollar a month cable service when they dont have the money for it.

In my experience, using the following folder and file structure is fairly infallible:

TV Show Name (folder with no year)
> TV Show Name Season 1
>>TVShowName.S01E01.episodename

The majority of files you download from the Internet these days are already named in this format "TVShow.S05E12.episode," so perhaps your folder structure is wrong?

If it is simply one show causing problems, a program like "File Renamer Basic" http://download.cnet.com/File-Renamer-Ba...06538.html might be of assistance. This program is designed for batch converting file names.

File Renamer Instructions:

**Rule of thumb: Never exit out a folder until you have completely edited the files. If you delete something, leave the folder and come back, the sort order will be changed and all newly-created episodes will be out of order.

1. Start in the Delete/Remove/Insert tab. Delete the characters you don't need (typically you will leave episode name suffix for reference and nothing more).

2. Go to the Advanced tab and type in the following string:
Regular Show - 5x<unique_in,01,1,1> - <fullfilename>

3. Hit Preview and then Apply for each 1 and 2.

That is as close to automated as it gets. You should save this profile and repeat the process for each season (changing the 5x to 6x, etc.).
