I have noticed that all my TV shows that are labled like "1x01 - Episode name" are found and added to the library, but none of them are ever found if they are named differently. Do I have to go back and manually change ALL of my TV episodes' file names? Or is there a more efficient way to do things? Thanks.

You can use regular expressions to pull the season/episode or absolute episode numbers from the filenames. See the wiki page for advancedsettings.xml for more info.
