There is a novel called “War and Peace”. There are different adaptations of this novel. There are TV series produced in 1965 and 2016 years. I have both of them:
Unfortunately, starting from 7.1 Infuse can’t distinguish them and obtain correct metadata for each. If I manually select correct metadata for one of them, both are changed in the same way, although they are located in a separate directories.
It seems that Infuse stores metadata just by folder name and movies with the same name are a problem.
Is there a way to solve this issue? Adding year to the folder name doesn’t work for TV series at all.
I tried to add year to the folders only. The structure is the next (sorry for russian names):
..|-> Война и мир (2016)
....|-> Сезон 1
......|-> Война и мир - S01E01
......|-> Война и мир - S01E02
......|-> Война и мир - S01E03
......|-> Война и мир - S01E04
......|-> Война и мир - S01E05
......|-> Война и мир - S01E06
..|-> Война и мир (1965)
....|-> Сезон 1
......|-> Война и мир - S01E01 - Андрей Болконский
......|-> Война и мир - S01E02 - Наташа Ростова
......|-> Война и мир - S01E03 - 1812 год
......|-> Война и мир - S01E04 - Пьер Безухов
Should I add the year to the actual video filenames as well? How can I deal with the missing posters on folders?
Well, if I add year to both folder and actual video filenames, separation is correct and posters are back. Thank you for a quick help.
Another question: is there a way to force update of the metadata in Infuse if something is changed on TheMovieDB (like translation, description or poster)? It seems that update takes quiet a lot of time (up to 1 day).
I had this problem with the 1965 War and Peace as well, because TMDB had almost no information on it. I have added episodes, descriptions and other key information as best I could. If it doesn’t look right, just yell out or even better, create a TMDB account and fix it yourself.
Interestingly, this was the only show of mine that TMDB didn’t have after the 7.1 upgrade. Everything else matched, sometimes after a bit of renaming !

This is exactly what I do. I have a TMDB account and add missing information for TV shows and movies that I have.
Unfortunately, with Russian (or even Soviet Union) movies there is a huge problem: there are a lot of multi-episode movies. They are not TV series at all, there are no seasons etc. Originally they were present on TMDB as movies. However, Infuse can’t correctly handle such multi-episode movies. The only way to deal with them is to create a copy on TMDB and describe them as TV series. This is so annoying… “War and Peace” (1965) is a good example of such movie, which is present on TMDB as both Movie and TV series.
