Re: Feature request: SRT files

I love this topic. LOL I am sure there is some very simple way to do what I want. Maybe a text file read from the Format line... I got my FB to fix the SDH issue. {subt} {fn =~ /eng-SDH/ ? null : { fn =~ /sdh/ ? '-SDH' : null }} So if the files are badly named (99% of all files are named in a very b...

Re: TV series HOTEL won't name episodes correctly

No worries. If you ever run into some issue like that again, then we can investigate. You can always press F6 to open the details view and check the Episode object metadata that FileBot is working with internally. Thanks!! That is awesome information to know.. I do fall into some odd things at time...

Re: TV series HOTEL won't name episodes correctly

I have no clue why I saw what I saw. I know they are not that way in the db of thetvdb. Which is why I was so confused originally. And while I took the picture of it with IMDB I really did try it with all the db's. And all were the same. But, no matter what happened (maybe I was actually asleep...lo...

TV series HOTEL won't name episodes correctly

So I have been doing some extensive fixing of thetvdb.com site on the series HOTEL (1982-1988) and after tons of research, I have gotten the episodes in the correct airdate order. I have also been working on posters and descriptions of the episodes. I last worked on the series on December 31. Season...

Re: 3D in file name seems to get ignored

Using my code how would I have it search n and fn? Or any 2 variables for that matter? I can think of a few things I may like to use that for. This example (where to put the file) is a great example of one way I'd like to use it. So it should check both to see if the word is found, and if so set the...

Re: Naming TV series with an OR option

I think the subject says what I want to do but this example should make more sense (lol.) ISSUE: I am naming a series that doesn't have series dates listed.
