I’ve got an issue on both iOS iPad running latest Infuse and my Apple TV 4K
Neither iOS or ATV4K recognize Blue Bloods files (season 5 or season 6) as TV shows
Some notes to perhaps further characterize the issue:
Both of iPad and ATV4K recognize the Better Call Saul season 3 folder contents as TV shows (iOS even has the nice episode indicators) - but I added that back in fall of 2017, so it is nicely in my Metadata cache on iOS
If I go to the “Edit Metadata” from one of those Blue Bloods episodes and try to Search … I get “Nothing Found” for ANY TV show name I try typing. Even if I type the name of a movie at that point, I get “Nothing Found”
I’ve got the files labeled “Blue Bloods S06E01.m4v” … etc from season 6 and “Blue.Bloods.S05E01.HDTV.mp4” … etc from season 5
Those Blue Bloods seasons were added in the last week … season 6 tonight
Maybe not so much “solved”, but all issues eventually went away.
I did a couple restarts of both the iPad Air 2 and ATV 4K - forced a rescan - and everything started working.
- was recognized as a TV show
- the "Edit Metadata" option showed the recognized TV title and several alternatives .. and the Search stopped returning "Nothing Found"
Oh and just to note that I originally had the majority of Season 5 files labeled with:
and it was true that the more rigorous ‘S05E01’ format was recognized, where the ‘501’ was not. Of course the ‘.HDTV-blah’ stuff might have caused the breakage, but I’m moving on at this point.
