TV Show with only one season:
How to name and create xml files for TV show with only one season.
Of course I could use Metadata 101 – Firecore and name files show-name_s01e01.ext.
But this way i would have one more click to select only Season 1.
TV Show with Special Episode in two parts:
When naming Special episodes ‘metadata 101’ say: For episodes classified as a ‘special’ a season number of 0 should be used.
S00E01 - special episode for season 1
but how to name when special episode is split into two parts as Top Gear Season 22 - Patagonia Special part 1 and part 2.
Welcome to the forum!
There is limited support for using XML files with TV shows, and it won’t be possible to create a TV show or season without having the series matched to something on TheTVDb.
With regard to the Top Gear Patagonia special in particular, it looks like TheTVDb has it listed as 2 separate episodes (68 & 69) so you can just use those numbers for the 2 parts.
Thanks for answer.
Well… maybe not exactly true…
I renamed all files to match pattern “[TV Show Name] s01e01 [episode title]” and modify a little xml file found in ‘metadata 101’ :
ZMIENNICY s01e01 Ceny Umowne.xml
<media type="TV Show">

Now i can see this show in ‘All TV Shows’ as every other show. But inside I have ‘Season 1’, which I would like to get rid of but I’m stuck for now
Great, glad it’s working!
It looks like that series is listed on TheTVDb (Zmiennicy - TheTVDB.com) but you can definitely use XML files to override the info Infuse is able to pull from there.
