Replace with Better Quality
#1
Is there an option to replace an existing item with a matching (new) item, which is more than likely a PROPER or re-release of some kind?
At the moment TMM doesn't know what to do, and doesn't replace the existing with the new, and just leaves the item with it's release name instead of using my rename scheme.

Perhaps I am missing the setting or have something misconfigured.

Cheers

Click the TV-Show folder >> Update Sources >> Update Selected TV Shows

Right-click TV-Show folder >>  Scrape new items

for movies: I would delete the old movie folder and start over with the new version (update data sources, scrape, rename)
for episodes: I would just delete the ep file(s) and put the new one into the same folder and to an update data sources, scrape of the EP and rename of the EP

Is there no option to do this automatically with matching title?

your new file has new meta data (filesize, extension, resolution, ..) which won't be updated in the tmm database and thus would not update your file names if you have such fields in the renamer..

the only _consistent_ workflow to replace would be the workflow from above

nevertheless, it _would_ also work if you just rename the new file to the old filename, but that would achieve an inconsistency between the physical file and the tmm entries
