What is the best/easiest way to transfer a Movie nfo to a TV Show nfo?

For example... Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) movie, I would rather have listed in my TV Show of the same name as S00E02. TVDB has no entry for the movie. There are many others as well.

I can move the Buffy movie to the TV Show directory, rename it to Buffy the Vampire Slayer S00E02 then rename the existing nfo file from movie.nfo to video_ts.nfo. But TMM won't recognise that nfo file as it was created for a movie, not a tv show. So I have to modify the nfo fields so then TMM will recognise it as an episode.

Is there any way to stream line this? Is it possible to have an option to Convert Movie to TV Episode and vice versa?

Thanks

Ohm... no.
Just move the file/dir, remove all NFOs, and update&scrape as show...

This is such a corner case, which barely happens - no time for adding such things, sorry.

No problems.

Can't update and scrape though as there is no entry at TVDB. So scrape at TMDB, then move it over.
