The PVR I use is NextPVR. It saves season and episode as part of the name, and Ember does a great job picking that up correct. Where I struggle, is shows that don't have seasons or episodes per se - things like NBC Nightly News. The file name looks like this: NBC Nightly News_20150922_18301900.ts

I added the follow regex _([0-9]{4})([0-9]{2})([0-9]{2})_[^\\/]*$ and checked "by date" on the TV Shows File and Sources --> regex tab, but it doesn't seem to work. That same regex worked in Kodi, so how do I get Ember to correctly parse the file name?

So you don't have escaped the "/" at the end of the regex. The fixed and working regex is:

Thanks, it works!

And awesome website - thanks for telling me about it.
