I have neither this episode, nor any idea if "reduced fields" will even work. Here goes nothin'!

Copy-paste into a new text file; save as whatever you called the episode with .nfo instead of .txt.
Babylon 5 - s00e02 - In the Beginning.avi would get Babylon 5 - s00e02 - In the Beginning.nfo, for example.

Thanks for that. I only just saw this. I tried it on the raspbmc and it does not work. Is there something else that I need to do aside from what you listed above? I have it in the same directory where the video is saved.

Thanks

You would need to rescan the item into your library to start. I'm assuming this is an XBMC fork of some kind?

Indeed, it's a fork of XBMC for Raspberry-Pi, use it myself. ;)

That said, from what I can see in the documentation, the episode information - possibly the series, as well - would need to be manually reloaded through the context menu, Episode or Show Information, Refresh.

That should all kick into place; if not, get the debug logs and I'll take a look tonight.
I've not ever had to actually do this for a series, though, so I'll dummy something up for testing purposes.

Ok, Works great. It is missing the broadcast date and original thumbnail image. But it now is organised correctly.

Thanks for the help :)
