Force TV Show to Use

Post by spetrillo »

Hello all,

Is there a way in Filebot to force which TV show it uses to format the episodes properly. I have downloaded the 8 seasons of 24 and it seems to want to use 24CH TV show for some of the seasons. Not sure why this would be happening.

Thanks,
Steve

Please read FAQ #2 for details on how to do just that.

If you were to provide file paths for testing, then we could look into that. Please read How to Request Help for details.

Looks like 24 is identified just fine, except we seem to be unable to fetch episode data, for unknown reasons, likely network issues at the time:

Code: Select all

Lookup via [24]
Fetching episode data for [24]
Failed to fetch episode data: [24]

:?: Are you using an outdated version of FileBot? Because newer versions of FileBot should print more detailed error messages.

Strange. Sorry, no idea then.


Does it work if you run a simple test case like this?

Code: Select all

$ filebot -rename *.mkv --db TheTVDB -non-strict --action TEST --log INFO
[TEST] from [24 S02e01 Day 2 800 A.M. - 900 A.M..mkv] to [24 - 2x01 - Day 2 800 A.M. - 900 A.M.mkv]
