edit TV show info

May 13, 2015 at 7:04 PM
Can I edit TV show's xml files manually? I've run into a couple little issues that I'd like to fix. For example the data shows an episode as part 1 and 2 but I have it as a single file so part 2 is "missing". I'd also like to wipe out the "Specials" section of a show. I've also got another situation where IMHO the TVDB data is wrong.

For Multi-part episodes, make sure the video file is named something like
S01E01E02...

this shows the file is for Season 1, and contains Episode 1 & Episode 2
can be any episodes actually
S02E04E05E06E07. (done this one myself for a DVD with 4 episodes.)

Specials only show if you have special epsiodes. Delete these special episodes, usually season 00, and refresh MC will remove them.

There isn't a stand-alone editor for tvshow.,nfo or for the episode nfo's, but you can edit data directly in MC, ie Plot, rating etc.
Thought I've just noted, that this doesn't update the Treeview, needed to do a refresh TV Show or Refresh All to get the tree data updated...something to fix for the next release.

Usually I advocate updating the data at TVDB, but I see more and more shows that are locked to stop people with differing views always editing and changing a Episode's data.

Hope thats of some help.
