I've started using ISO files for some TV shows and have successfully followed the instructions at http://forums.mediacentermaster.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=314

The issue I have is that Kodi does not recognise S01E01-E06.xxx - See here
What I found to work the most reliable is 'S01E01-S01E02-S01E03-S01E04-S01E05-S01E06'.xxx

Unfortunately when rescanning the show in MCM the metadata is then broken as MCM doesn't recognise this format I believe.

Could this be fixed somehow?

Thanks!

Kodi understands all of my multi-episodes. I've never had to do anything special for Kodi to recognize them from MCM's renaming. Can you go into details about the issues you're having with Kodi recognizing that name format?

I don't use Kodi, but isn't this a change?

Quote:
Only the episodes in the file name will be added, e.g. name.s01e01-03.ext will not include episode 2.

I didn't read the request carefully enough. Technically, this is a bug (or at least a limitation in MCM).

The Kodi wiki documentation does say that multi-episodes aren't ranges so that S01E01-E03 will not include episode E02. When aired, episodes are rarely broadcast this way so it doesn't come up in my library, but for DVD/BluRay releases of TV series, this comes up quite a lot. S01E01-E06 for disc 1 of some show will miss 4 episodes in between.

I'll need to work on correcting this. Check the Issue Tracker and if there isn't an issue already in there for this problem, please add one.

I actually missed checking the Issue Tracker sorry.

It already exists from a few years ago: Issue 1359
Although it is not listed as a bug but a feature request.

I'm currently working around it by letting MCM do its work and then renaming all files afterwards to Kodi compatible names.

Just a small update.

I've found that MCM recognises the Kodi format of s01e01e02e03 - xxx. This works for me.

The only issue I have now is the 'Auto-rename All Files' process which does not appear to give me control over what format is used when invoked and renames as s01e01-e02 - xxx

Adding an option to control multi episode naming rules into the Settings would allow this function to work correctly for me.

Cheers
