    Hi,


    you could use Lehmdens MKV-Buddy. I use it for about 700 movies and 2300 series episodes and I have not one single fail under MP 2.1. The generated .nfo files use the MediaPortal and Kodi supported format. Strongly recommended.



    I think you just could leave them in and let them be overwritten by MKV-Buddy. In MKV-Buddy you can select if media files are downloaded and overwrite the existing ones. Its up to you. Just try it on a copied example folder.




    Cheers

    In light of the findings about bad nfo's I'll mark this as "No bug"

    MKV-Buddy don't work, cause my files are on a network drive.
    At least i think thats the problem why MKV Buddy do not create Metadatas.

    This was an issue in MKV-Buddy V1 long, long time ago...

    Nevertheless I strongly would recommend to use a local working directory to prepare new files before putting them into the "real" media folders... The MP2 share watcher could become "crazy" when you are constantly modifying media files inside a media share...

    You can try to map the network share In Windows Explorer and assign a drive letter to it. The buddy should be able to use this drive.

    Problem solved.

    I switched all incomplete episodes and seasons in a new folder, start a reimport that all eposidos are out of the database.
    Restart the Server, switch all files back and reimport.

    Now all metadatas are right.

    Without any change from TMM or MKV Buddy. (y)

    But that doesn't remove the source of your problems - the faulty .nfo files.
