    I would be really grateful for some advice on sorting out my EPG.

    As I do all my recording with Argus TV, I need to ensure that my recordings (when they show up in the list) have the Season and Episode details in the title so I know which episode to watch next - in case you do not know, Argus has a tendency to record in random orders to ensure that everything is recorded.

    The only EPG Grabber that I have that sucessfully does this is the Birtles XMLTV GUI grabber - it has a post processor that deliberately adds the Season and Episode into the name of the recording.

    The problem is that this grabber only has a limited number of channels and I am desperately trying to find another grabber than can do a similar thing.

    I have tried Webgrab++ and EPGCollector and neither appear to provide the ability to inject this information back into the recording channel title.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
