Hey guys.

Organising TV Shows that XBMC would not pick up has always been such a boring task so i have made this application that should make it easier for you.

What this application does:
  1. Creates TVShow.nfo with fanart, thumb, genre and plot support
  2. Creates a episode NFO file for each tv show episode
  3. Can filter out parts of file names, eg (720p)
  4. Supports file filter, so that no unessacary nfo files are created
  5. Choose which season and episode you want for each TV episode

Unfortunately I can't get it to work. I get errors and .nfo files with wrong titles.
Any chance of an update?

Not many seems interested in my application. However i'm willing to do an update if you could explain when the error occurs, and what the error message is.

Well I was interested in your app but I too am getting an error

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

    < jitDebugging="true" />

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

I get this error when I click GENERATE

Bloody shame too this looked like the perfect solution for me and very light weight.

thanks for the effort all the same

I've been looking for something like this for years...I have over 800 tv shows and cartoons and this will come in handy for those stubborn tvdb scrapes. I just want my shows/episodes to appear as they named. I will test this out.

Edit: Well I got same error as well. Do you have to fill out every box?

I'm guessing that you can't batch process a whole TV show folder with different shows and episodes? This would be awesome if it could do that, download fanart, thumbs, etc..
