Two shows with similar names - How do I differentiate?

Postby ak2766 » Sun Jun 21, 2015 7:52 am

Hi there.

I've got the TV show The Killing (US). Now I'd like to get The Killing Forbrydelsen. How do I name the episodes for The Killing Forbrydelsen so it does not conflict with the US version I already have? I'd hate for the US show to be overwritten!

Cheers,
ak.

I suspect you're inquiring about some third party application so you might be better off asking on their support forum, but basic logic dictates making two separate directories for the files in each series..

Maybe we shouldn't have "The Killing" as title for both series, I'm going the remove it from the Killing (US)

Was it set as an alias or something that I'd overlooked?

How do we not have a ninja smile?

@hikaricore Ye, it was an alias for The Killing (US/2011), surprised it hasn't come up as an issue before. It's been there for years, never noticed it before
