    Thanks Paul, It's good to get everybody's contribution. I agree with everything you say, as none of it conflicts with my post #9.

    I have discovered about 5 undocumented tips since I started this thread - shame they are not documented anywhere.

    I'll tell Conceiva how their software works in a few days.

    I have reproduced the problem where the file with season and episode information is not set to the TV show category, the TV show category is only assigned when getting information from thetvdb.org. We can fix this so that any video with season and episode information is assigned this category.

    I have sent you a private message with information about a patch you can install for the tv show category issue.

    Hi Peter,

    The email hasn't arrived in my inbox - not sure if you sent it to me.

    EDIT: Huh. Just found out what a private message is ... Thanks

    But please re-read my message 9.

    My Categories for TV Shows *seem to be* fine now. However, I only have metadata sources set to my folder path and file - nothing to do with the internet - and I've never seen or heard of thetvdb.org, so I doubt your comment in message #12.

    In my case, because harvesting info from the internet appears to supply too many wrong guesses, reliance on the internet would be a bad thing for me. Please don't remove the identification from the tvshow.nfo file or the movie's nfo file.

    Rog

    Hi Peter,

    I have now moved onto my Home Movies, and referenced the documentation at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...names#tv_shows.

    I attach an extract from that page.

    Everything listed in the extract is INCORRECT (unless there are additional conditions which aren't mentioned). (All my files are mp4's but I guess that doesn't matter).

    IS THERE A WAY of populating the Category on Home Movies "Home Movie"?

    I re-read your post #9 and the patch fixes issue 3 you posted where if the file contains S01E01 but no tvshow.nfo then it won't be detected as 'TV show'.

    For the Home movies issue can you please post the filename of one of your home movies so we can test it here?

    While you are at it, could you please advise the following.

    My next test will be to set up my home movies as follows.

    e.g.

    - Holidays
    - 2001
    movie1.mp4
    movie2.mp4
    movie3.mp4
    - 2002
    movie4.mp4
    movie5.mp4
    etc

    - Kids
    - 2010
    movie6.mp4
    movie7.mp4
    movie8.mp4
    - 2011
    movie9.mp4
    movie10.mp4
    movie11.mp4
    etc

    How would you set this up?
    In which field would you enter 'Kids' and 'Holidays'?
    If your answer is in a keyword, I haven't managed to get any keywords into my Mezzmo database (other than manually against each file). How do you do it?
    If you need examples of what I've done, I'll send them tomorrow.

    See the bottom of my post #3 earlier.

    I tested some file names the same as yours here and they get the Home Movie category assigned. Please make sure in Metadata Retrieval Settings that you have 'Get text metadata from file path' checked as this is required for determining if the file is a home movie.

    To create the structure you want in a playlist you could use the Keyword field followed by the Year. You would need to populate the Keyword field by going to the properties of the file and entering 'Holidays' or 'Kids' in the Keyword.

    I don't mean to hijack this thread, but is there a tutorial anywhere on how to create these .nfo files? What is the correct naming for files and what fields can be used for TV Shows and Films? I've been Googling like mad and come up empty so far.

    TIA.
