TV-Server, Recording, Custom Filenames
I hope it is ok I'm adding a link to help Explain this for people that get stuck
this is for 2.0 but should work as well for 1.1.3
MediaPortal Setup Guide
I have multiple listings in my schedules direct account. It only seems to read the first. Is there a way around this? I did a search but nothing obvious came up
I just took a quick peek at the code and it appears to at least try to import multiple lineups (i.e., there's a for loop on the list of lineups it gets from the SD webservice).
I didn't develop that code at all, but if you post some logs, it may point us in the right direction.
Does anyone have a good setup to get the automatic import working with tv series plug-in? I have to manually enter every time.
While I no longer pay for SD I have a friend who uses this... I think you'll need to explain these items better. The tab addressing accessing the tvdb is used to populate the MP-db with the season/episode values TV-series will need but it's up to you to create the proper filenames (setup in TV-Server). Although I'm stumped at what you have to repeatedly do manually.
You do appreciate this works up front and not after you'd created the files, right? This doesn't alter files on your HDD.
All my filenames end up as something like "Breaking bad - Sep011211ES01E03" and then tv series detects the S01E03 part and thinks the title of the show is "Breaking bad - Sep011211E" leaving me to delete the last part before it will recognize the show.
The wiki recomends using:
%title%\%title% - %episode% - %name%
to name the file for MP TV-Series comparability. So remove the date tag from the filename ... it isn't needed, as that info is in the xml for RecordedTV. Then the SD plugin can capture the %episode% label and convert it to SxxExx.
Separate names with a comma.
