Assigning files to episodes (semi-)automatically?
#1
I have recently downloaded a lot of children's programmes from the archives of a public broadcaster* and am now trying to sort them.
Two questions regarding this:

1. Is there any way to have tinymm automatically assign episode/season numbers based on the filename?
2. Is there any way to have the air date displayed when searching for episodes? Currently it is only episode/season/name and I cannot seem to change this.

Thanks!

One other question: sometimes, when I try to assign an episode to a file manually by searching for the episode, it does not 'stick'. As if the file were read-only but I checked and all are writable. Any idea where this comes from?

- "guessing" of episode number from the file name is not implemented since that won't work in most cases (just imagine that you probably won't  have the file name 1:1 to the episode name from the scraper; and allowing a little inaccuracy here opens the doors for false positives which must be avoided). to detect the right episode you need at least the SxxExx pattern in the file name or assign them manually like you do
- the bug from your second post will be fixed in v3.1

Thanks for the info and can confirm that the bug was no longer present with 3.1. Smile
