edit: After much cussing I got SMB running on Windows 10 (involved some regedit tweak, a list permissions issue, and creating a new userid and sharing to it specifcally)
So, once I logged into SMB instead of UPNP things magically starting working as expected - almost.
IF and only IF I created a folder.jpg image for a main folder the seasons would auto-magically sort themselves into pretty Icons that contain all the episodes. I didn’t even need to be too strict with the naming structure. However nothing I did made the master folder auto-populate an image. Only the seasons would become the pretty versions auto-magically.
It’s close enough for me, and makes the experience pretty darn close to ideal for browsing my old media files.

I can not figure this out.
For example, I have tried
Folder name: Aquarius
SubFolder: Season 1
File name: Aquarius.S01E01.mkv
I’ve tried the above with Aquarius - S01E01.mkv
I’ve tried the above changing the title to Aquarius (2015) in both areas.
I’ve tried the above changing the root folder to Aquarius (2015) and the file to Aquarius.2015.S01E01.mkv
I’ve tried restarting both devices. I’ve tried deleting the cached meta data. turning on and off the file meta data.
Nothing works. All I ever get is a generic folder, a generic sub folder for season,and under that, it scans and groups all episodes correctly – regardless of name format.
I also tried addting a folder.jpg to the season folder, and a named one to the folder above. That doesn’t work either.
My feet are squishy from bug goo.
I’m using the native file sharing from Windows 10 uPNP connection.
Does this only work over SMB or something? at a lower encryption? Why?
