Could you give me more examples of what you are trying to do, what you have tried, and where you have trouble? Is it about retaining bits and pieces of the original filename?
Yes, it's exactly about "retaining bits and pieces of the original filename". I don't care if the episode original filename can't be auto-matched, I match it manually in such cases, finding the episodes in the Episodes section, and transferring them "to the right side" of the Rename. I'm worried about renaming here. So, I have some scene-named special, plex ignores it completely, then I go and match it to the TVDB in the filebot (auto or manually). Then I have my files on the left side and their correct matches on the right side. I just need the expression that won't just change it to some genric "Show Name - s00e00 - Episode Title" or some other custom unified format. I want to retain all original filename parts except for season and episode (for plex detection). Other example would be "Adventure time" - scene released same episodes with 8 and 9 season in the filename, and different episodes numbering in each case (cause of confusion where one season ends and other begins). I want to match them manually to the TVDB order, and then rename only the s00e00 parts in them, leaving everything else untouched and in the same order - audio quality, languages, release group, codecs, quality, and whatever else someone decided to put there (I know I can get some of that stuff from the expression variables, but that's not what I want).
