When attempting to fetch metadata, I will get an error message that MCM is unable to determine what TV show it is working on despite reading the directory as MASH. Of course it cannot be named M*A*S*H in Windows.

I tried to fetch metadata using the tvdb.com series ID. This worked and tagged all of the episodes correctly, but was not able to provide any metadata for the show itself. Odd. What is going on here?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Partial copy of the log:

2:37 PM :: MCM: [F#1] now working on MASH
2:37 PM :: thetvdb.com now working on MASH
2:37 PM :: thetvdb.com Unable to determine what show this is
2:37 PM :: MCM: [F#1] Created Kodi/XBMC metadata files
2:43 PM :: Media Center Master v2.18 (build 32818.738)

You need an override so that MCM knows which show Mash refers to. Click the Application menu, then TV Series Title Detection Override. Click Add New and put the TV show name, so Mash in this case. In the TVDB ID box, put 70994 then click Save, then Done.

What this does is tells MCM that when it finds a show or episode named Mash, it actually refers to M*A*S*H, the name that can't be used in Windows. You can do this for any show that you're having similar trouble with.

The TVDB entry for Mash is here:

EDIT: Sorry, I misread the second part of your post. It's worth trying the override first, but it may not solve your issue.

Thanks for the advise! Unfortunately that did not work and the issue remains. When looking at the metadata of individual episodes, it looks like everything is present except for the show name.

I am attaching a screen shot from MCM.

Use TheTVDB series ID for M*A*S*H (70994) in the Add a TV series wizard. Then move your season folders with your episodes into the new folder.

Media >> Add an T.V. series ...
