Help w/Pinky & the Brain DVD Order Not Pulling Correctly

Post by daetilus »

So I have Pinky & the Brain that I've ripped from my DVDs. The show has on the DVDs, and like how it aired (along with a lot of other cartoons), an episode that will have will often have 2-3 segments. Those segments are often considered episodes.

So when you look at thetvdb the Official Order (or airdate) they are all separated out individually. But the DVD Order will combine the ones that were aired together and call it a single episode.

I want to follow the naming of the DVD order since I don't plan on breaking the episodes down to those individual segments. It's just easier to leave them as the true aired episode groupings. However, when I select DVD Order, Filebot is still pulling out the Official Order. This happens on the Rename and the Episodes tabs

- Using Filebot GUI 4.9.0.0 on Windows 10
- SS of Preset settings I'm using
- SS of Rename results
- SS of Episodes tab
- Groovy Pad
- File paths

Thanks for any help!

It's definitely pulling different episode numbers though:


Official Order

Code: Select all

$ filebot -list --db TheTVDB --q "Pinky and the Brain" --filter "s == 1 && e in 6..9" --order Airdate
Pinky and the Brain - 1x06 - Pinky & The Fog
Pinky and the Brain - 1x07 - Where No Mouse Has Gone Before
Pinky and the Brain - 1x08 - Cheese Roll Call
Pinky and the Brain - 1x09 - Brainania
DVD Order

Code: Select all

$ filebot -list --db TheTVDB --q "Pinky and the Brain" --filter "s == 1 && e in 6..9" --order DVD
Pinky and the Brain - 1x06 - Pinky & The Fog
Pinky and the Brain - 1x06 - TV or Not TV
Pinky and the Brain - 1x07 - Where No Mouse Has Gone Before
Pinky and the Brain - 1x07 - Napoleon Brainaparte
Pinky and the Brain - 1x08 - Cheese Roll Call
Pinky and the Brain - 1x08 - A Pinky And The Brain Christmas
Pinky and the Brain - 1x09 - Snowball

Multi-Episode matching looks good as well as far as I can tell:

Code: Select all

$ filebot -rename *.mkv --action TEST -non-strict --order DVD
[TEST] from [Pinky And The Brain S01e06.mkv] to [Pinky and the Brain - 1x06 - Pinky & The Fog & TV or Not TV.mkv]
