I have some free time coming up this next week so I'll try to get this all sorted once and for all. :)

Update! <inb4chaos>

I've gone ahead and moved the episodes the corresponding year seasons.

There are a couple things that I'll need to address however:

1. Buster cuts. We have some of these in Specials and some of them in the seasons. I suspect there's a reason for this but I'll need to review the series history here on the forum to find out more of why. I placed all the existing specials in where they fit before so for now it should be fine.
2. The original seasons are still in place because they contain artwork. This artwork will most likely need to be moved to the year seasons most closely related to the art in question. There are a few places where the artwork just won't match up so we'll evaluate that further soon.

We'll be updating everyone here as this progresses and I thank you for your patience in the meantime.

And he's calling this coming weekend's episode another season finale.

...because it was. Again. Seasons are just short now that Adam and Jamie are alone and have another agenda (touring, etc).

All I have to say is that I like that you've changed to year. Hoping that some artwork will be showing up soon. :)

Keep up the good work!

Hi guys

I was scrolling through my Sonarr lists and noticed my Mythbusters seasons was 53/266... Which got me thinking umm, hang on a second that's not right. So I then checked the folder where my TV series are kept, then went into Myhtbusters and noticed some folders were renamed to year and others were not. The folders with year had some episodes in them which matched with what Sonar was picking up in the total number of episodes. The ones with season were not being picked up by Sonarr. Which got me thinking... wtf have I done... So I moved the files back to my drone factory folder which picked up a few and re-imported but not all.

I thought this was maybe a bug so I restarted Sonarr - same issue.

I then moved all the files out of the season folders into a folder called Mythbusters and put that into my drone factory folder, which imported one or two episodes but still left me with the same problem. Anyway did some googling which led me to this post which now makes so I joined forum and now here I am.

I personally don't care if they're listed as episodes or years, I'm just pissed off I now have a total of 112 MKV files totaling 154GB that were perfectly organised and now are not. Was the migration process from seasons to years meant to happen automatically? How can I re-import these files? I've stopped Sonar from searching for missing episodes for Mythbusters for the time being.

Cheers.

I can't really comment on how this change is being handled by third party software and services, most likely you would need to talk to the folks who put together Sonarr about this. We don't provide support for such things in any capacity as we're just the database they utilize.

You'd have to rename all of your files as so:
Mythbusters.Year.Month.day.extension

Ex. Mythbusters.2015.07.18.mkv for you software to pick up the changes. Other than that it'll be impossible unless using TheXEM as primary db.

If episode are dated correctly in the db, sonarr ,sb ,etc, etc. will pick it up without any issues.

I don't mind the change. It is certainly easier to maintain.

But when I renamed all my files, I realised this one was missing from the year season setup:
MythBusters 11x09 - Plane Boarding - Bite the Bullet

Aha!

I had two copies of it, and one was probably mislabelled. My bad. The file date was also from 2013, so I have no idea what happened there.

Thanks anyway :)
