    Question Help with TV Meta data? Episodes.xml and series.xml examples?

    Could I please get some instructions on setting up TV meta data properly using series.xml and/or episode.xml or whatever is the best way to manage this information.

    I have my tv setup as such

    Drive:\Media\TV\<SeriesName>\<Season.#>\FileName.s 01e03.something

    I then have Drive\Media\TV added in to Mezzmo and I view through 'folders'. I'm happy to structure them however required to make this work.

    If i create episode.xml file using "The TVDB XML Fetcher for the WDTV Live Hub" and save the xml file as the episode name and put it in the season folder named the same as the episode file but .xml, Mezmo doesn't read it when I refresh that folder
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    
    <!-- XML Generated by The XML Fetcher Version Version 1.6.3.1 -->
    
    <!-- Series ID 70682 -->
    -<details> <id>70682</id> <title>Oz- S01E02 Visits, Conjugal and Otherwise</title> <series_name>Oz</series_name> <mpaa>TV-MA</mpaa> <episode_name>Visits, Conjugal and Otherwise</episode_name> <season_number>1</season_number> <episode_number>2</episode_number> <firstaired>1997-07-14</firstaired> <year>1997-07-14</year> <genre>Drama</genre> <runtime>60</runtime> <plot>With Schibetta and the prison brass in a race to uncover Ortolani's killer (for very different reasons), we see how inmates react to visits from both their wives and, in one case, family members who are also in prison.</plot> <overview>With Schibetta and the prison brass in a race to uncover Ortolani's killer (for very different reasons), we see how inmates react to visits from both their wives and, in one case, family members who are also in prison.</overview> <director>Nick Gomez</director> <actor>Susan Floyd / Tomas Milian / Tim McAdams / Goodfella Mike G. / José Ramón Rosario / Esther Swan / Skipp Sudduth / Douglas Crosby / O.L.

    If i extract a series.xml file from the TVDB (eg: http://www.thetvdb.com/api/D1BD82E2A...682/all/en.zip) take the en.xml file out of that zip, rename it to series.xml and put it in Drive:\Media\TV\Oz\ mezzmo doesn't recognise it

    if i put it in

    Drive:\Media\TV\ and call it Oz.xml it doesn't recognise it either.

    A tutorial or guide on how to set this up would be very appreciated.
