Re: Gruen

What a mess. I was just wondering why it was changed from season 11 to 10. I don't have an issue with anything mentioned here, all is factually correct based on current information. But ABC has made a mess of this show with all the different names and how they chose air dates. I believe when i first...

Show specials and the dreaded "extras" word

I will say I did do a search and saw this was brought up just recently, but wanted to chime in with my thoughts suggestions. I will say this came to mind because I was doing housekeeping on my own library. NOTE: This is not a demand, just my own opinion on the subject. AND PLEASE take note this is n...

Specials Number Ordering

No I'm not asking for DVD extras to be added :) What I'm asking is about this - http://thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seriesid=269159&seasonid=559707&lid=7 I get the rules and why extras are missing, but could I ask that if episodes are deleted the number order get cleaned up. Thanks in advance.

Re: NFO Tutorial

I feel so bad for missing this. Haven't been on for a while. The fix to your problem is in the season tag. I believe changing the season from 0 to 1 will fix it. And a precaution I like taking is making sure the file name is the same. For example: "The Big Bang Theory - 01x00 - Pilot 2007"...

Re: NFO Tutorial

Sorry this has taken so long to respond to. I want to give a little warning. I have noticed that newer versions of Media Companion are not recognizing custom shows.

More Customization and Tips/Tricks

How do you deal with special shows like commercials and DVDs? TVDB does not allow DVDs being added to the database, no problem there is an easy solution to this problem. XBMC has no problem reading ISO files so I gathered them into a folder called "DVD" All my DVDs are gathered in Season ...

Custom Shows

Custom Shows From time to time you will find there are shows that are either disallowed or make no sense for the TVDB website. Sports and Holiday shows would fit under this description. For me the first show I had to create was Christmas Specials. This was a catch all for all my Christmas specials ...

Basics

Organization Most of you will be able to skip this step but it goes without saying that you are going to need to organize your media files in a way that can be recognized by your HTPC platform and your own eyes. I recomend this folder structure: TV SHOW NAME - SEASON 1 - SEASON 2 - SPECIALS Example...
