EPG info in recorded tv names (1 Viewer)

I've been attempting to set up mediaportal for about a week now and I'm fairly happy but perfection is my ultimate goal. My problem is that I obtain my EPG data from mce2xml and then run it through ultraxmltv to get episode titles and season info... all works very well.

However, my problem now is getting MediaPortal to recognize this info and incorporate it into the filenames for recorded tv so the tvseries will recognize it. As of now, only the description, series name and sometimes the episode number is used from my tvguide.xml file so I'm at a loss as of how to fix it...

Current xml data

<title>Lost *</title>
<sub-title>Some Like It Hoth</sub-title>
<desc>Suspicions are raised when Ben is taken from the infirmary; Miles is asked to deliver an important package.</desc>
<length units="minutes">62</length>
<episode-num system="dd_progid">EP00672362.0127</episode-num>
<previously-shown start="20090415" />
<new />
<subtitles type="teletext" />
<rating system="VCHIP">

resulting file name...

Lost - - - 2009-04-15.ts

suppose to be...
Lost - season - episode # - date

I hope that wasn't to long but thanks for the time and any help!
