    is there a way already to go through ALL of my media files and create thumbnails for missing episodes not on thetvdb.org? or even to go ahead and override the downloaded ones since a lot of times they aren't great quality?

    Nope, but if they are bad quality and you have better ones then please request on theTVDB that you can replace them so everyone can benefit.

    but is there an easy way to do it to upload there? if i have a program that will go through and make images for all of my missing eps i'll upload them. i don't have the time to do it manually for each episode though. i've got way too many.

    I juse VLC and press Ctrl-Alt-s, then it puts them in My Documents\My Pictures\

    Guess I still have to convert them from png > jpg though.

    I'll give your suggested program a look :)
