How to add numbers to episode numbers

Post by johnken »

Sorry if this is simple and I should be able to figure it out, but I don't really know enough programming to figure this out. I'm trying to add 7 to all my episode numbers. I currently have Arrested Development Remix listed as e01-e22, but theTVDB lists them as e08-e29.

How can I get it to add 7 so I don't have to rename them manually? I've played around with sum and can't get the syntax right, mainly because I have no idea what I'm doing.

You'll want to solve the problem at the source (i.e. matching) so that the format has the correct data to work with in the next step.

Automatic matching can't work if SxE numbers are misleading. You'll want to align the files and episodes manually, which should be exceedingly simple assuming at least the order of episodes is the same for both numbering schemes.

Please watch the Getting Started, Page 2 video tutorial:



:idea: The GUI is the way to go for tricky cases that need a little bit of a hands-on approach, but if you must use the command-line and need help with that, then please read How to Request Help. ;)
