EDIT again lol:
Maybe I didn't misread.
What happens if you try
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<episodedetails>
<title>BBC News at One</title>
<plot>2020.06.30 13:00 BBC ONE HD
The One O'Clock News from The BBC [HD]</plot>
<playcount>0</playcount>
</episodedetails>


Thanks for this - tried this :


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<episodedetails>
    <title>Wimbledon Rewind</title>
    <plot>02.07.2020 13:30 - BBC TWO HD
This trawl through the SW19 archives features finals involving two of Wimbledon's greatest stars - Boris Becker and Steffi Graf, who have ten singles titles between them. [S] [HD]</plot>
    <playcount>0</playcount>
</episodedetails>


And it doesn't seem to be recognised.  I still don't seem to have any information when I browse that folder via TV Shows, nor does anything get added to my library (though I don't require library view of this content - just to be able to browse the metadata as I browse the file structure if possible)

https://pastebin.com/pcrhhf73 shows the relevant part of the logs where the metadata isn't found.

The original .nfo file was recommended elsewhere - but looking a bit deeper it seems as if Kodi requires TV shows to have a series metadata .nfo file and each epsiode an accompanying episode file.  However that works for episodic TV in a library - but is less useful for just enriching a browse experience.

I guess the PVR client solution is what I should be using or this - but it doesn't fit quite right with my requirements, and I didn't want to have to use a PVR backend, just add the recordings folder.
