    Default TV Metadata retrieval not working in latest version

    Problems with Metadata retrieval with latest version

    File name is Home and Away - S26E184 - Episode 5844.avi

    No metadata retrieved for this , looks like it is trying to find it as a film and not a tv show

    The title is also being used as the filename because it didn't match, previously if it didn't match it would have been titled 'Home and Away: 026 E184'

    EDIT
    Another example
    Neighbours - S29E194 - Episode 6744.avi
    This one doesn't match with an online database (details not update yet), previous version would pick up the Series and Episode from the file name, current version leaves these as zero, also seems to be using the filename as the show title

    EDIT2
    Date of episode is wrong also, should be aired date of show, it is picking Jan 01 instead of this

    Thanks

    Hi Paul,

    Just been looking into this some more. We did fix an issue with our file name parsing in v3.4.2.0 and this has caused "Home and Away - S26E184 - Episode 5844.avi" to fail to pick up the series title, season and episode. The reason is that there are two episodes listed in the file name (i.e. 'E184' and 'Episode 5844'). This double-up of episodes breaks our list of valid file name styles. If you remove the 'Episode 5844', then it works fine. The reason it worked in a previous version is that our file name parser had a bug. We will not be changing it back as it causes quite a few other file naming issues.

    Episode 5844 is the name of the show

    I have tested on other shows I have and using the format 'Show Name - SXXEXXX - Episode name' works fine

    eg
    Buffy the vampire slayer - S01E01 - Welcome to the Hellmouth.mp4

    If this is how it is going to be for now, is there anyway of turning off the auto metadata retrieval, I am not prepared to go through my library again and rename all my tv episodes so would rather manually tag them (through the Mezzmo search online option)

    I think the Problem is that their Name parsing System recognises Episode not as the Name as it could also be used as marking an Episode number....
    Like

    Home and Away - S26E184 - Episode 5844.avi
    could also be named "Home and Away - Season 26 Episode 184 Episode 5844
    and suddenly the System has two different episodes in the filename....

    It will only be the "<series> - SxxExx - Episode xxxx.ext" files that will not be correctly parsed. It is the Episode keyword used in the names of the file names of these shows that confuses our file path parser since there is already an episode defined in the file path as Exx. So, "Buffy the vampire slayer - S01E01 - Welcome to the Hellmouth.mp4" is parsed correctly. You will only have to rename those shows with Episode as the name of the show.

    If you want to turn off file name parsing, go to the Metadata Retrieval Settings dialog and turn off the "Get text metadata from file path" checkbox.

    Thanks

    I can have a look at possibly changing for future episodes

    But how does it now work for shows that have the word Episode in the title when its nothing to do with an episode number

    eg

    Charmed - S01E17 - That '70s Episode.mp4

    This one cant be renamed

    EDIT:Taken the word Episode out of the above and it now seems fine, just an extra step before adding media to library

    Paul

    I would support this request. My file names are managed using TV rename and this approach is messing with the metadata.

    I just fell into the trap to update my library and it just got all messed up. Took 2 hrs to fix it up.

    Cheers

    I also just updated to 3.4.2.0, and the filenames are missing. Example:

    Filename: Castle.S06E1.Valkyrie.mp4
    Old Display: Castle Valkyrie
    New Display: Castle 001

    Generally, when I add a file it initially desplays the actual filename, then after it downloads the metadata is shows just the title, which is okay as long as it keeps the episodes in order. After the latest update, it always displays the title as above. I haven't notice it change any existing titles, just new ones, and the filename on the server is unchanged.
