    My wife is complaining every now and then the naming policy of tv shows. She likes to use very handy 'upcoming episodes' feature to find new episodes. Downside is she can't see episodes which are named differently. Almost every time it is simply some age rating that changed the name. For example, if episodes are named "Heartbeat", "Heartbeat (12)", "Heartbeat" and "Heartbeat (S)" she will miss 2nd and 4th episode when applying 'upcoming episodes' for "Heartbeat".
    This naming policy cause also new folder to be made in the 'Recorded tv' for every episode which name is different.

    So the request is: Some episodes rename/parse feature would be nice to have to the TVservice. Then that parsed (exact) name shall be used in 'upcoming episodes' and 'recorded tv'. Or is there some work done already (Tried to search, but I'm a lousy hunter)?
