XML is a widely recognized standard. I haven’t seen anything to suggest that “.nfo” files are a standard that is recognized as interchangeable with XML. For example, Windows (7, 8, 10…) recognizes .nfo as a “system information file” by default. Wikipedia suggests something totally different for “.nfo” files.
Did you look at the thread that I referenced?

Currently, in order for TV shows to appear in the Library, you will need to have Metadata Fetching enabled and the shows will need to match against something on TheTVDb. It won’t really matter what they’re matching since you’re overriding the fetched info with your own XML/artwork anyways.
As I understand this post:
- You need metadata fetching
- The show needs to “match against” something in TVDb
- If those requirements are met, you can override with your own XML and art
So, my questions still remains: What does it mean to “match against” and how can I get this to work?
This is also a poor way to handle this, compared with the way movies work. I think Firecore needs to consider an update and I am happy to vote on that, if there is a thread with it.
